Thanks man, these look great! I like how well the collar stands underneath the jacket. Have you had any issues with the color fading in a normal cold machine wash?
so far so good, but it’s only been through about 3-4 wash cycles so far as I just picked it up this year. I have a navy as well that I’ve had for much longer, it’s held up incredibly well over the years

Hi guys,

I'm looking at the quite nice shawl collar cardigans from Kent Wang but am not sure about which size I should get.

I usually am between sizes 38-40 in sportcoats (I do have broad shoulders, that's why I often need to take size 40 and get the rest altered) and the size-charts on the site suggests me to take a size "L" for their cardigans. The only thing that makes me a bit unsure is the chest measurement, at 19 inches. Isn't that quite small?

Does anyone have an experience with a cardigan in L? How does it fit?

Thanks in advance!

Jesse in the photos is wearing a L cardigan. He is 5’9”, 175 lbs (175 cm, 80 kg) and wears 40R in suits.

The loose, stretchy knit of the shawl cardigan makes the fit very forgiving.

I usually take sweaters with an 18 or 19” p2p, and the KW size S (17” p2p) fits me perfectly.

Has anyone owned (or tried) both the KW cardigan and the Scott & Charters cardigans?

FYI -- Goodyear welted dress shoes are being discontinued--already marked down $50 from their original prices (reflected on current website pricing).

Benchgrades start at 295
Handgrades (formerly from DC Lewis) at $395. Thanks to @thisfits

Yes. I own an S&C cardigan and have handled Northern Watters (the producer for KW) cardigans and knitwear.
What would you like to know?
