Kent Wang x Thick as Thieves OCBD slim fit shirts - Page 3

post #31 of 162
Put me down for a 14.5 too. 34 chest, 28/29 waist, depending.

Does it have the button on the back of the collar?

+1. 2" collar band and 3+" (3 1/2") wings would be optimal. Would really make the roll more prominent.

SOLD I have one prototype plain white shirt in size 15 available immediately. SOLD The fabric is regular oxford, not royal oxford, a little stiffer and thicker. The collar is 2 1/8" instead of 2.5", which is on the small side; please make sure you are ok with this. Due to a miscommunication with the factory the cuffs are made as single button convertible to French cuff. However, when the cuff is buttoned the slit is not visible. The price is $95. SOLD Please place your order on my website form. For research purposes please mention if you are a previous Thick as Thieves or Kent Wang customer. Any questions email sales@kentwang.com; please do not PM.

No, though that was a feature we considered.

We deliberately decided to make 2.5" collar tips as this is more reflective of the traditional OCBDs that inspired us.

If the collar was the regular length, this shirt would have been mine. I think I prefer the regular oxford weave to royal oxford, but either is fine.

what if they're neither and are interested as a new customer due to the collaborative effort involved?

The 15 would have been great, but I need 34.5" sleeves :\\

Seeking 14.5 model I have decided to make a 14.5 size. I worked with VMan on the sizing for the 15.75 and Baron on the 16.5. I am seeking another person or two to work with on the 14.5. This is not a model in the sense of being photographed, but one that I will base the measurements on. Ugly people may apply. Criteria:
  • 34-35 chest.
  • 28-29 waist.
  • Slim, not overly skinny or muscular.
  • 5'6" - 5'9" height
  • Approximately 14.5 neck, but am flexible about this.
  • Reasonably available via email or IM.
  • At least 100 posts, preference given to well-known members.
  • US and Canada only.
I will send you a size 15 shirt and you will tell me how much smaller the ideal shirt needs to be. You will then be able to have first dibs on the size 14.5 shirts that I will make -- you will still have to pay for them. If I decide to make the size different from your own measurements you will nevertheless be able to purchase shirts in your exact measurements for +$15, which you can consider as a MTM fee (so $130). This is the only way we are doing MTM at the moment. To apply, please email kwang@kentwang.com with:
  • Height, weight
  • Chest, waist sizes
  • Photo of yourself -- don't need to show your face, just your torso

I got a 15. The fit is very good. As you can see there is a liiiitle bit of extra fabric in the chest, but that's just my 36" chest not quite filling it all out. The neck is just a bit big, which is slightly odd, because my other Kent Wang shirt is plenty snug (I'm going to post a picture of that shirt, too, at some point). Of course, things will even out a bit in the wash. The sleeve length good, and the overall length is better for tucking. The fabric is freakin' sweet, and the construction is exemplary (to this relatively untrained eye).

I could almost be a 14.5" model, but I'm juuuuust outside the specs.

36 chest.
30 waist.
I am slim, not overly skinny or muscular.
5'8" height (145#)
15" neck, although I do have a couple 14.5's

The 15 will fit, may be even perfectly. For slim/trim fit *dress* shirt, you would need 3-5" of clearance between actual chest size and shirt's pit-to-pit measurement (after multiplying by 2). Or 2" if you want to wear it Get Smart style (not CBD-friendly, however).

White oxford sold yet?

Oh, and if people were concerned at all about the collar tips being too short, here's a (crappy) pic of the collar with a (skinny) tie. I personally like the short tips. It looks well-balanced to me.

My actual chest measurement is 34"--I was adding 2" to 4" to get to the numbers I posted. The 15" shirts would probably fit alright through the chest, but my actual neck measurement is 14", so anything listed at 15" is usually way too loose if I'm going to wear a tie.

Now that I look at it, I more or less meet the specs--I'm an inch over on the waist and a half inch under on the neck. I'm a bit of a n00b (sub 100 posts), however, and I'm currently sporting a pair of modest man tits, so I'm not really model material.

If there were only two Size 15 shirts, I guess I got the other one. After wearing it a full day, here's some comments (fit picture in yesterday's WAYWT): * not as slim as I was hoping for. I wouldn't say it is slimmer than an H&M Easy-Iron dress shirt in Small (wouldn't say it is bigger either). The shoulder measurements are identical on the two shirts (i.e. perfect on me), however it seems like the KWxTaT shirt has a tiny bit more room in the body (most notably in the chest and waist... area between the two, I guess the stomach, was fine). The sleeve tightness is about the same (KWxTaT sleeves might actually be a hair slimmer). * construction is top notch * love the fabric and looooove the buttons! * hem is the right length for tucking, but I think this shirt would look just as awesome untucked with a shorter length Overall, I think it's a great OCBD and it was worth every penny. Thanks Kent and Jason!
