I think people really need to keep the whole self-measuring bit in perspective.
For most Jantzen customers, the comparison starts with OTR shirts. My experience as an example:
Current shirt: Joseph Abboud, $90. Fit score: 20/100
1st Jantzen: $43. Fit score 90/100
2nd Jantzen: $43. Fit score 95/100
3rd Jantzen: $43. Expected fit score 97/100
The perfect shirt for me would have about 1/2" more slope in the shoulder. I'm afraid to mess with it though, in fear I would take a shirt with a fit of 97% perfect, and turn it into one with a score of 70%.
As always - your experience may vary. The Abboud, the 1st Jantzen order, and the 2nd Jantzen order are in sequence below.
