    I don't have any pictures yet but I received my Kent Wang Polo shirt in white the other day. Actually, I received two, a large and an extra large, in order to decide on which size to keep. I'm a 16.5 inch neck with a 43 inch chest so I settled on the XL. Fit is trim but comfortable. I don't golf so it's fine.

    I love the collar. One of my main complaints with polos has always been the way the ribbed collars flop around and always look unkempt. This one is great. The self-fabric holds a nice shape and the spread looks sharp. The mother of pearl buttons are also a nice touch.

    I have a second on the way in Royal Blue. I hope Kent gets some more colors in the line (Green, cream?) as well as maybe a long-sleeved rugby shirt with that fantastic collar. Even though I'm not a skinny guy I'm liking clothing that doesn't have yards and yards of extra fabric.

    I'm starting to put together the next run of polos. I would appreciate your input on:

    Other colors you would like
    Is anyone interested in a XXL?

    I haven't tried one yet but plan to soon. I'd like to see navy and lavender added.

    another vote for lavender, and one for light orange or yellow. navy/black/etc. end up with faded collars after a couple washes so count me out on those.

    Wore the blue one today. That collar is a work of genius. It just behaves in a way that polo collars never have. And the spread is nifty too.

    Maybe a traditional fit? I'm still not convinced that these will work for golf. However, I like the reviews of the collar enough to want to try one.

    +1 (royal blue) Love it.

    Another definite vote for lavender. Maybe a yellow. Perhaps a green too?

    Ordered the Cornflower blue flora and the Paisley light blue pocket squares on Sunday and they arrived today. As usual, kick-ass product by Kent Wang.

    It's only will power that stops me from an orgy of spending at KW.

    Just received my first kent wang shirt today, it fitted perfectly [​IMG]

    Worryingly though, I ordered two pocket squares on April 14, several days before I ordered the shirt, but they still havent arrived [​IMG]

    I bought the cornflower blue flora pocket square also as my first KW item. Very impressed with the quality and quick service. I have a feeling I'll be buying more KW items in the future.

    Believe me, when I started ordering from KW when he first launched his company I thought one or two pocket squares and I'd be done. It's like a drug...except a very pretty drug.

    Thanks. I'd have to say that the cornflower blue flora is a favorite of mine. Very hard to find linen prints, and good designs are even rarer. [​IMG] Here, I am wearing: Corneliani sportcoat Kent Wang blue gingham shirt Kent Wang cornflower flora linen pocket square

    Send me an email and we'll look into it. But I guess it's been delayed in customs.

    I just wore my polo today and the fit is exactly like I hoped for. The quality is top notch and the spread collar is a perfect touch. I will be ordering a white one very soon. They make the J.Crew ones I used to wear look and feel like rough sacks.

    Blue Gingham looks amazing. Looking forward to my package!
