post #16 of 50
This is a timely thread for me, because I've seemingly been banned by Ricky before I even started with him. Last November, I placed my first order, and sat frustrated while I read on these boards about other new Jantzen customers of the same vintage who got their shirts while I did not. So I sent Ricky a nice e-mail this spring asking what had become of my order. No reply. Then in May, I placed another order. Yesterday, after having heard nothing back on that order, I sent another nice note asking what was up. Does anyone have any magic word or phrase that I could use to get some love from Ricky?

Rather, the enormous variance in order filling is purely a function of Ricky being overwhelmed. Actually he is a nice guy according to those who have met with/spoken to him and would not impose arbitrary punishment.
Then I digress. Thanks for the clarification Sounds like people are going to have to be extra, extra patient.

Agreed - give him a call and he'll get your shirts out to you much much faster - pretty nice guy too, Panzer

Mr. Xristo, we may all be giving Ricky an unfair rap. I don't think he has any expectations about his customers "bowing down." I don't think he bans anybody, it's just that orders get misplaced or lost. It's happened to me, and I called him. Three weeks later, I got the shirts I ordered. Unfortunately, a call to Hong Kong cost almost as much as 1 shirt, but it's the price we pay.

I hear you and did digress after receiving clarification, thank you for further clarifying the matter. It would appear the best way to order/check status, et al would be to call at all costs and not to email Mr. Ricky

I was talking to RIcky this a.m. about a shirt order and I found myself, in a strange way, worried about pissing him off. Then it hit me: Ricky is like the Soup Nazi in that Seinfeld episode. "That's it. No shirts for you." PS: Ricky, if you are reading this: I love you man.

Living in Texas I've often considered the possibility of harnessing Mexican labor. I've done no research into the matter at all since I have no Mexican friends nor do I speak Spanish but maybe someone more versed in the subject would know if it's feasible in terms of both cost and quality. I understand that there is plenty of affluence in Mexico City. How is tailoring there? I don't think we have any members who hail from Mexico, but surely someone has visited a few times?

are you looking for mass production or 10 shirts here and there?

The latter. The smaller the necessary volume the better. I've been considering a run across the border to buy a few cases of cheap tequila. If I could get some shirts commissioned while I'm there, that would be perfect. If higher volume is really necessary, maybe something along the lines of m@T's endeavor in Vietnam.

Given the amount of money in Mexico City, I can assure you there are reputable tailors; finding one is another story.

Nonexistent. There are some Dominican tailors here who do shirts, but I have never tried one.

Panzeraxe, thanks for your reply. I was just about to take your advice when ricky replied to my e-mail. You're right: he's a nice guy. His tone was really friendly. I'm now excited to get my first Jantzen shirt.

I found the web site for Ricky.. I assume everyone here is satsified with the quality and fit?

I sent an email and received a prompt reply, then another note with some questions about the order. Ricky even apologized for the delay. All and all, I'd say he is extremely nice.
