Jantzen Collars

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to put in another order from Jantzen later today and was wondering which collar would be the closest to an English spread collar. I'm looking for something similar to Tyrwhitt's windsor collar or the T&A spread collar. What collar have the Jantzen-ites on here been using? Also, I'm planning on ordering my second shirt without first having received the first shirt because I want the shirts before I start working this summer. I have used WW Chan for a bunch of shirts and have gotten my measurements down for my Chan shirts, do you think that if I use the same measurements I will get about the same result (I mean, I don't see why I wouldn't). What do you guys think?

The results from Jantzen may be a bit different, even though you are using the same measurements. The shirts may be cut slightly differently, which could cause a differnt fit. More importantly, they may make different allowances in their cutting -- Jantzen will take your measurements and add a little bit extra (to avoid a skin-tight fit). Different shirtmakers could build in varying degrees of allowances. Some others here have suggested that your measurements for Jantzen should be on the generous side in terms of sleeve length. I'll leave it to others who have more experience with Jantzen to comment in more detail -- alternatively, you might try doing a search on this forum.

The thing is, Jantzen says how much they allow based on the fit that you choose, so if I figure out how much allowance Chan or my local shirtmaker give (actually my local guy told me how much allowance he uses) I should be able to figure out a good fit. The thing is that if I wait to get my first shirt (which could be another month since I ordered it in the middle of February) and then order the newer shirts sometime in May, I'll be done with my summer job (which ends in August) before I even get the shirts. So I'm thinking maybe it's worth the risk.

Well, I did it. If they come out wrong, I'll just write it off as a lesson learned.
