KrisVanAssche faux Bow Tie Shirt


I just bought this shirt a few days ago...which is one of the items in my Fall/Winter wishlist. The cut of the shirt is pretty good except that it is quite long...the fake bow tie is not a print, it is actually a patch sewn onto the shirt. Finally, i got something to wear to my company's Annual Dinner...

Nice KVA shirt. May i know how much it cost and where is it available? Thanks for the heads up. Also what size is it

monsieur AG said...

thank you. It cost about USD450. I am wearing a size 44.

My fake tie one from the previous FW season cost like $300, did they increase the price this season?

And damn, you wear a 44? I wear a 46 and its so form fitting and tight, and the pit to pit is even slimmer than dior!

monsieur AG said...

are you referring to the one with the straight tie at the buttons? That is nice. Every shirt is different and how can it be the same price?

it all depends on what size of DH do you compare it to...

alex said...

yes, its the one van assche wore during the ss07 collection. Its the only shirt I bought from KVA. And I must say its very well made (but t shirts, belt are crap).

I usually wear size 38 dior. and the 46 is so slim, yet not tight on the arms. I really like the way it fits, which is why I bought it in the first place. I was hoping that it would fit like shit, so I wouldnt have to buy it. But after trying it on, I couldnt imagine not adding it to my wardrobe...haha

monsieur AG said...

is it a print or a real piece of fabric sewn onto it? I would say KVA t-shirts are much better than DH...i have about 3 or 4 of them...

i wear size38 for DH too...44 in KVA is ok for me although its a little tight at the shoulders...well, to create a slim look...i decided to buy 44

one thing that i don't really like is that the shirt is too long...maybe i am short...haha(i'm 1.75m)

alex said...

its another cloth sewn to it, to achive the "tie" look. Almost everyone likes it. They'd be like "nice tie!" but after a closer look, they'd get a bit confused and be all like "thats an interesting shirt!, whered you get that? I want one so I dont need to wear ties anymore during weddings!"

You mean the t shirts during pre ss05? the t shirts were made out of sheer cotton thats so soft and delicate! And design wise, KVA is so ugly with the 'love hurts' slogan and stuff!

I cant imagine wearing a 44, whe the 46 is that tight, maybe you can post a pic of you wearing it?

monsieur AG said...

that is really nice. I wanted to get it but couldn't find it so i gave up...

the prints on the t-shirt is not that interesting but the good part is that the cut of it and the twirl at the neck is really nice...

I will post a picture when i wear it...

alex said...

I think you can still find it at y! jp auctions. Although the price is around 65000yen, if I remembered correctly.

Great! looking forward to seeing a picture of you wearing it!

monsieur AG said...

i tried checking there but all are used... :)

i will post a pic when i wear it

alex said...

I noticed this particular shirt has a french cuffs instead of the normal cuff thats on my fake tie shirt. I guess that explains why you think that the sleeves are a bit longer.

ok, im looking forward to the pic!

monsieur AG said...

the cuffs are quite thick but i still like it anyway...

Calvin said...

Salut AG

I got this KVA shirt too
is quite long as you say!
size 44 是這件襯衫最小的尺寸嗎?

Merci

monsieur AG said...

是的,44真的很小...如果我再胖一點就可能穿不下了

Calvin said...

可是size 44我穿還是有點大耶...@#$

monsieur AG said...

嘩!你真的很瘦耶...可能你可以拿去改吧?

Calvin said...

可能是下襬太長的關係吧..
其他地方還可以

monsieur AG said...

這樣的話,簡單很多...拿去改就行了呀

Calvin said...

捨不得改啦
一件這麼貴哪改的下手

monsieur AG said...

改了會跟好看哦

不改的話會不好看哦

Calvin said...

hi AG
哪你有改嗎?

haha

monsieur AG said...

我沒改因爲已經很窄

Are there any other designers making shirts similar to these? I have seen one that looked more like a real bow tie on an MTV show with rapper bow wow.

monsieur AG said...

yes. Neil Barrett has one but its a print...as for the one u are referring, i guess its a real bow tie

William said...
