A different kind of Critique my Jantzen (Shirt and Suit)

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 








Measured on site, professionally laundered once. The only change I might make fit-wize is to make the sleeves about 1/2 inch longer with cuffs about 1/4 -1/2 inch smaller and the neck about 1/2 to 1/3 inch bigger. Any other advice?

Where's the suit?

I'm not sure I'd tinker with the sleeves. To my eye, they look about the right length.

I think the sleeve length is alright as well. It looks like the shoulders are a bit wide though, but maybe your shoulders just slope a lot.

Jantzen suit, measured in HK. Not sure about the fabric, just that my wife liked it. The whole process felt a little rushed, but I am please with the result. Anyone have any input?









I thought this was particularly interesting. The re-inforcement on the back of the pants legs is the edge of the fabric bolt. The same can be found inside the pockets. I personally have no issue with it, and actually think it is pretty interesting.

The shoulders in picture from the front (and the back) of the suit seem a little strange. Why is it folded in like that? Is that just the way you are standing? Otherwise it looks very nice.

My shoulders are apparently pretty sloping. I wouldn't change the shoulder. I have a Chan shirt that I just got in the mail, the shoulders of which are pretty snug, maybe more so than I like.

For some reason I decided to hold my arms out from my sides during the picture. Not sure why, but I think that does is the reason for what you are talking about.

I'll wait for the experts to chime in, but I'm definitely impressed. Is it fully-canvassed? Also would you mind sharing a price?

Fully canvassed, one measurement, one fitting basted etc , pick up. $4500 HK for three shirts and one suit.

Nice suit, looks great on you except for the top of the sleeves folding in.

Great lining colour, did you select it?

I remember discussing it with them, and we basically agreed that the lining should pretty much match the lines in the suit. They ran with it from there.

for the price you paid overall if you are happy with it then thats the main thing from my expirance you were a little over charged at HK $4500 for 1 siut and 3 shirts, but you get that shopping in central that last time i bought shirts and a suit it was HK $3500 with some nasty ties thrown into the deal too! but i asked for half canvas and also half linned, as the weather in HK is not so suit wearing friendly so i got the to make it as thin and light as possible!

i think the balance in sleeve length looks a bit off or is that coz you have not straightened you self out before the photo? and judging from the slevedge edge they gave you the bare minimal amount of fabric - which hadded to me a cuple of time also you might find this inthe rear pockets too!

the last time i went window shopping in TST on kowloon side there was some talior offering suit shirt and ties for HK $888 but i am alway wary of these kinds of offers but it pays to shop around

new obsession,

shirt and suit look great, congrats!

couple of questions for you or luk-cha or anyone else;

do they offer quarter lined or half lined jackets?

how were the fabric choices? any English or Italian mills?

seems a great deal, i am planning to get to hong kong sooner rather than later.

best,

dan
