Jantzen Taking Internet Orders Again? - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I spoke with him today. Apparently, he is very busy. Seller's market...

I haven spoken with him recently as well. I just recieved my 4th shirt of the year from him (3rd order) and ordered 6 more.

I hope he doesn't read this, but his recent price increase is a joke. He should raise his price from $310 HKD to $450 HKD. In all honesty, he could probably close the doors of his shop and go exclusively internet at $500 HKD and make a killing. I don't see where he has any realistic competition under $95 U.S. dollars. He probably doesn't have much competition under $180 U.S. dollars.

I tried to order earlier this week and received a "front page error" message. I assume that my order probably didn't go through. Has anyone ever received this message before?

I don't know about that. If the price rose that much, I would stop ordering from Jantzen and find someone local.

I hope Ricky and David can find a solution to the problems with overseas orders. Periodically opening and closing ordering windows seems doesn't seem to cut it. I'd happily pay a little more per shirt if it meant hiring someone. Even though mail order is a small percentage of their business (from what I gather), I'm sure it would certainly rise if it was easier to order.

Received an order today, thread to follow. Order was placed in-person (by someone else) about 6 weeks ago; shipping took a full 5 weeks to Kuwait.

I agree completey. At $180, there are tons of choices. My point is his product seems to approximate a $180 shirt sourced elsewhere. At $500 HKD plus $35 HKD shipping, his shirts would cost $69 U.S.D. Would anyone stop buying Jantzen at $69? If so, what would you buy instead?

I don't think I would, but I'd buy considerably fewer shirts. At the current price, I can afford to buy more than I need. I like that.

Agreed. I'd probably go ahead and use CEGO for the convenience.

Yeah, at $69, I'd just go ahead and pay the extra $5 or $10 for Chan shirts. They've always fit me better, too, since they do the measuring.

I agree. Chan shirts are noticeably nicer. If only they had better fabrics. We should do a mass appeal.

Does WW Chan do shirts only as well during his US visits or must shirt orders accompany suits?
post #27 of 29
I'm pretty sure you can order just shirts. Patrick cuts a really great slim fit shirt.

I ordered a single shirt during Chan's last tour. I was billed a few days ago, so I expect it to arrive shortly.

So Chan shirts are about $80?
