Mine arrived about a week-and-a-half ago, and then a burned-out HD and my temperamental cable ISP knocked out my PC. The verdict, here we go... Keep in mind I don't own any shirts from Turnbull & Asser, Borrelli, Charvet, Fray, Kiton, Barba or even Lorenzini, but I am familiar with their construction and fabric quality. Sooooo... Based on this shirt, I don't think I'll be buying a dress shirt off-the-rack again. Ever. The shirt I received is a perfect fit, which is pretty rare for me, given I'm 14.5/31.5. It is
single-needle-tailored throughout, and the cutaway spread collar - which is nigh-impossible to find where I live - is very well done. The buttons, although troca-shell, are Fray
-thick and very nice. It's far superior to everything else in it's price range that I've seen, and, I'd say, a lot of shirts at twice the price. Plus, it's exactly how I want it, I didn't have to live with some designer's idea of how a shirt should fit. They were very quick and friendly when answering my e-mails, and asked a few questions to ensure I wasn't shooting myself in the foot in terms of measurements (31.5" sleeve? Yes, really.). So, if all your shirts are from the brands listed above, or you wear a pretty standard size, you could probably give Jantzen a miss, but I was very happy with it. I think I'll order another later in the week, something with a check or a stripe. Then, some colored shirts with white collar and cuffs. Hey, I have a tailor now. He's my
There's a certain amount of nineteen-thirties charm there, I think... Cheers, Nick.
