Big restock of polo shirts. They're selling very quickly and we're having trouble keeping them in stock.

No, I'm afraid our best estimate is now Oct 31. I'm tweaking the design, so have to wait on samples, then adjustments to the samples, etc

Finally got the new strap put on. It’s awesome. I’m 0% a watch guy, so can’t speak to technical specs, but it feels lovely, and just about weightless compared to the standard strap. And the nice pop of visual sex appeal is always fun. Given how light it feels, will be curious to see how it ages.
Will speak on the squares when I actually get them out of the packaging, but they look pretty solid. Designs are stellar, of course. Very interested to see how they wear. Much as I love the silk ones, I just could never get the damn things to consistently stay put. Maybe swap out for W/S ones and frame the silk ones?

Can anyone with the burnt orange polo post a picture? Having hard time finding one online and want to possibly purchase that color. Thanks.

How do KW dress shirts compare to Brook's or J. Press in terms of both fit and quality?

Apologies if that's an apples-to-oranges comparison.

Our shirt construction is entirely single-needle. Our mother of pearl buttons are the highest quality you'll find on any shirt. Brooks and J Press use plastic buttons, or at best, thin low-quality MOP.

Our fit is slimmer.

I encourage you to buy one of our shirts and another from Brooks or J Press (you could always return it). It will be obvious that our quality is superior. If not, I'll give you a $200 gift code.

Would love to try your polos, but sizing is far to small for even moderate big boys (i.e. size 44/46 chest)

I know more skus can bog down a small company, but there is a decent market segment out their that is sized out from purchasing all most all of your RTW items

I have a 46.5" chest and the XXL polos fit me nicely. Definitely wouldn't want them any smaller, but they fit me "slim" without being tight. (For further reference I'm 5'11", 205 lbs.)

That said, I'm by no means a huge guy, and it boggles my mind that I'm wearing the largest size KW offers. I'm usually a M or L, and very occasionally an XL in shirts. It's laughable that I have to buy XXL in KW polos. They absolutely need to adjust their sizing. It's like they sized things for an Asian market (since KW himself is Asian) but they are selling to the American market. Just weird. It's the opposite of vanity sizing.
