Kent Wang Los Angeles trunk show

Kent Wang does things a little differently from other retailers. We believe in simplicity and honesty. We don’t play the games other companies like to play.
We don’t do sales or discounts. We believe it’s better to have one low price for everyone at all times. Other stores artificially inflate retail prices so they can offer discounts later—we don’t. There’s no need to wait for a sale, our prices are low year-round.
As we sell directly to customers, we don’t need to charge the high profit margins that brick & mortar shops do. Our costs go toward making quality products, not on fancy storefronts and advertising campaigns. Our cuff link prices, in particular, are much lower than others as we don’t charge exorbitant jewelry industry markups.
We never have offers “for a limited time only”; there’s no pressure to “act now”. We don’t do limited editions; we never artificially limit supply in order to inflate prices. Good products will always remain available, so that if you want to buy one years later we’ll still have it.
No deceptive prices like $19.99—we’re not afraid to say something is $20.
The quality of our products speak for themselves. You already paid for the item—we don’t need you to be a walking billboard.
We minimize packaging in order to reduce our impact on the environment and save money for the customer.
We don’t use affected color names like ‘Hawaiian Ocean’ or call our shoes ‘Park Avenue’ when ‘captoe balmoral’ is much more informative.
Named after Cambria, France where it was first woven, chambray is a plain weave with a colored warp and a white weft, giving it a subtle texture.
The natural slubby weave of linen is shown here in all its glory.
A hybrid between a casual rugby and a woven shirt, this shirt is appropriate on its own, layered with a sweater, or even a sportcoat.
The collar is constructed like a woven shirt with a collarband and two layers of self fabric, instead of the typical single layer of ribbed fabric that loses its shape quickly. This allows the collar to naturally lay open elegantly. It is also a spread collar for a subtle, rakish look.
Unlike most rugbys, these feature a button cuff, another characteristic drawn from woven shirts.
