    kent, are your polos really as slim as the measurements suggest? I'm normally a 40R (chest measures 39") and am surprised to see that I'd be an XL. is that right?

    Kent - bought a pocket square and two sets of cufflinks and am absolutely delighted with both. I plan on buying many more of both soon.

    Just one question - how long are your polos in Small?



    Actually, just one more question. I'm considering purchasing your brown plain captoes. Do you have lasted shoe trees for these? If not, could you recommend me some suitably fitting trees?

    Yes, that's right.

    Please take a look at the measurement page.

    I don't have lasted shoe trees but you can buy Woodlore Epic for about $23 online.

    If hang dried, shrinkage will be almost imperceptible, except the rugby will shrink about half an inch in the sleeves. If machine dried, there will be a small amount of shrinkage.

    I think some of the posters in this thread that have machine dried said half an inch in the length.

    Half an inch sounds right.

    Also, Kent, my custom polos were at my door when I got home tonight. I'm happy they're finally here. I'll be in touch.


    Teger, you could wear a L. I'm a 36R and have tried both S and M. I prefer the fit of the S, but I do have one M polo that I still regularly wear.

    Any thoughts on doing an adelaide or austerity brogue-styled shoe? There would seem to be an opening for well-made versions of those styles in your price point.

    I'm a 41 chest. 5'10" 180 lbs athletic. Large is good for me.

    Any word on new polo colors, Kent?

    6', 175, normal 40r, also take an XL in KW shirts. If you have athletic arms, they may still be too small. I cannot wear my shirts anymore for this reason, which is a shame because they are well made and beautiful.

    Hello Kent,

    This has been my first order from you.
    I just received my grey rugby and love it!
    Will there be a restock anytime soon of some of the polo shirts in XXL? I'm looking at the navy one in particular.

    My raw measurements are 44.5" chest, 16.5" upper arms, and 32" waist. Any possibility the XXL polo might still fit me? If not, is this sizing you could accommodate with your MTM program?

    Might be a bit tight on the XXL, but we should still be able to do MTM off of it. We've done it for an even larger customer.

    Just ordered two grenadines: navy and burgundy. Looking forward to receiving them! Judging by the pictures and reviews on this forum, I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

    I have them myself. They tie a beautiful knot and hang well.
