I finally thought I had the measurements just about perfect; I have been ordering for a while and never been able to get things just right but felt pretty good that I was finally close. I made two very small changes (asked to have the armholes raised slightly and the very bottom of the shirts widened a tad). When I received the shirts it was like they were made for someone else. The stomach area was wider, the monograms were wrong, the double cuffs were way too flimsy, and the armholes were actually bigger rather than smaller as requested. Most troublesome was the collar. When I buttoned it to put on a tie there were all kinds of folds going from collar into the chest area that looked absolutely terrible. Basically, I cannot wear them with a tie.
All in all this is very frustrating. I am trying to decide if I should write Ricky about it, but he seems so busy I am not sure what his response will be. I am also trying to decide if this is going to be the Jantzen swan song for me or if I will try once more from scratch to get it right.
i placed a 10 shirt order this morning and am very curious as to what the turnaround time wil be. i also sent him an email re-stating all the changes and modifications to my sizing - hopefully i will hear from him soon.
