    Hi Kent,

    Forgive me if this has recently been asked and answered, but is there any idea on when the Pearl White cufflinks will be back in stock? (Specifically: http://www.kentwang.com/cuff-links/pearl-white.html). I was looking to place an order for a few things but I was hoping to be able to include everything all at once. Thanks.

    Woohoo! Again, please please stick the heavier weight piques. The light stuff (light grey) doesn't lay well on the body and it's quite delicate.

    Would love to see more shirt fabrics. Blue and white regular OCBDs would be fantastic (I don't really dig the royal oxford button down) and maybe some twill or broadcloth shirts? I love my purple gingham. I assume the white and blue poplins would make for pretty solid dress shirts?

    Kent, I have this pocket square and I love it more than life itself. We need more of these light coloured, delicate printed patterns for summer.

    My Wang is too small and doesn't stay up; I wish it were a couple inches bigger (pun intended).

    Seriously, 12''x12'' is really too small in most fabrics. Puff folds tend to sink back into the pocket. Imo, 14''x14'' to 16''x16'' is ideal in all but the heaviest fabrics.

    What material are they?? I heard the best mix for a pocket square is silk/cotton. stands nice and tall and doesn't slip.

    Received my navy long-sleeve polo/rugby. Very pleased with quality and fit.

    Put a crumpled tissue in the pocket, with the pocket square on top.

    I like the 12 x 12 better than the monster 16 x 16 size. The larger squares make it look like my moobs are lopsided! Seriously, the larger squares sometimes make one lapel bow out too far.

    12" is the perfect size for me and numerous other customers. Doesn't slide down, in fact some of the heavier fabrics occasionally ride up a little. Do you have gigantic pockets? If you think about it, a puff fold basically folds the square in half, so unless your pocket is 6" or deeper it should be fine. I just measured one of my jacket's pocket and it's 5" deep.

    Broadcloth is the same as poplin. The ginghams are also poplin, so you already have an idea of the texture.

    I liked that blue/white floral so much I just ordered one (along with a couple of others). I have a Black Fleece linen sport coat with a very small breast pocket. All my pocket squares are too big for it. Hoping the 12" will be more suitable.
    By the way, I have had Kent Wang do custom formal studs that are awesome and the customer service is great! Highly recommended supplier.

    God damnit, Kent, you did it again with the new shoes. All four shoes are amazing.
