Kent Wang Autumn / Winter 2013

We caught up with Kent Wang at his New York trunk show and the brand has seen considerable growth since Unrefinery first became fans of his trademark polo shirts. A few highlights:
  • Made-to-measure suits with full canvas construction and considerable handwork are produced in a rapid process (about three weeks) that works off of modifications to a trial suit. For the knowledgeable buyer it can be a tremendous value—Zegna, Vitale, and Loro Piana fabrics are all available in the $820 range for a two-piece suit.

  • All of the high-end shoes look great, but it's the highly affordable classic leather sneaker [$95] that we particularly dig. Now available in grey and navy as well as the original white. Comparable to Common Projects sneakers that cost 4x as much. You can see why they tend to sell out.

  • Unrefinery is in no position to criticize anyone's photography, but the online photos of the pocket squares don't do them justice. The rich saturated printing on the French-made silk squares needs to be seen to be appreciated.
