Alias, you misread my email. The shirt I received with short sleeves and a mis-sized colar was from New and Lingwood--not Jantzen.

**Edit** Just checked the first link, Ken, and that answered a bunch of questions.  Seems that though I am slim, if I get the form-fit shirt I'm just asking for trouble.  Don't want to be stuck with a shirt I can't even wear.
Eric, I tried a form fit from jantzen and it turned out well and I will be ordering them like that in the future. Trouble starts, when one fudges the measurements as well to make it slimmer - that's when you see trouble. One extra hint: I've had to order my sleeves longer on my second shirt than my measurements had indicated and that seems to happen a lot. It seems that JT has different methods of measuring the sleves. Bjorn

Ricky is betting on customers who will order large quantities, instead of just one shirt at a time.  He is quite well known among expatriates in Hong Kong, who will gladly order 10 shirts at a shot (well, it's only US$37 a shirt, which is dirt cheap to most).
Hmmm - the shirt I'm waiting for is my third single shirt order as I'm still fine tuning my measurements. Perhaps I'm beeing blacklisted because of that   B EDIT: (few hours later...) Got a letter tonight from Ricky - seems the order never got through in the first place and he's going to make it right away - no harm done and I'm looking forward to my white 140s with connery cuffs. What was really funny is that he's taking notice of what we say here - at least he assured me that I was not on any blacklist . Had 4 of my friends over tonight and measured them for JT so I felt a lot more comfortable about that after Ricky's letter.
