Jantzen White Fabrics

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am preparing to order my first Jantzen based on everyone's input here and it seems that there are so many varied opinions of the quality of some of the fabrics. Which white ones should I consider and which should I avoid?

Thanks

I have a shirt made from this fabric.

#22, Super Fine Snow White Fine Cotton Twill, 120's, 2 Ply,
100% Italian Cotton

It's soft with a slight sheen to it and overall am extremely happy with it.

How's the transparency on that one?

There's no transparency. Completely opaque.

I have this as well. It is completely opaque, and I think it is quite good.

And based on earlier threads and near universal recommendations this was the fabric of my first order, which has not yet arrived.

A tempting fabric...can't stand transparent white shirts.

Order a twill or a twill variant (e.g. diagonal squares) if you don't need a really lightweight shirt.

What about the #11 ( Super Fine White Plain Cotton, 140's, 2Ply, 100% Sea Island Cotton)? For that matter, what about the #12 (same but 120's French blue)?

The twills and herringbones tend to have better hand, especially those that cost marginally more. I did not like #11. No doubt it is a 140, but not a good one.

I just got my second order in a #1, White Cotton 120's, 2 Ply, 100% Italian Cotton.

The fabric is nice and soft, with no transparency (I have not washed it yet), but I don't recommand it. It is much too light for my taste and is really plain looking (no sheen). I will try with a dobby or a twil newt time.
