Do you own any Jantzen?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Comments over at AAAC got me thinking, so I've posted an identical poll on both forums. Do you own any shirts by Jantzen?

If you do, are you likely to purchase more?

yes, 2 shirts. both fit perfect and were received timely. The latest order was in march, received in first week of May.

I am definitely going to order more, despite the troubles posted on AAAC. I just order and forget. If I never get the shirt, as long as I am not billed, it isnt the end of the world.

No for me...not my bag, baby.

Just received a 10 shirt order. No errors, no mistakes, everything went as smooth as it gets. took long long time though...

I am impressed everytime I receive an order from Ricky. He got it right the first time and with a few tweaks it is now perfect. It is still a great value.

I answered more than 11. When I was in HK in the fall, picked up ten shirts. Combined with the 6 previously purchased, I have 16. The 1st two, the sleeves are too short, but that is my fault. I appreciated the inperson ability to feel the fabric and the discount of serving as my own shipper for the ten I purchased on site. 16 shirts for less than $640.00. I can live with the service issues.

None so far. Too much hassle ordering online, self-measure, not sure if orders will be filled and so on. But I'll one day when I get to HK.

Own one and am not at all impressed with the (highly praised / hyped) workmanship. Based on the pretty unfavourable value-to-cost-ratio of my shirt (pilling fabric, etc.) i will not order again.

Exactly what you've defined VR...It's much less the product than the process that puts me off. Having to provide my own set of measurements just seems to daunting.

I've never experienced pilling cotton on a shirt. Can you explain what you mean by that and how/when the "pilling" happens (after washing?) ? thanks

Wow - this seems odd. After 20 replies, 65% of us own Jantzen shirts, with another 10% indicating they'd like to. That's 75% penetration. Over on AAAC, after 15 replies only 20% admit to owning a Jantzen, with one more person (6.67%) planning to buy. Over 73% at AAAC said no - they don't intend to buy. I post more here than there, but ansered both polls. Had I not answered the AAAC poll, the numbers would be even lower.

I wonder what makes such a sharp distinction between the two forums?

With pilling i mean those micro-thread ends that stand out from the surface. Was there even before first washing / wearing.

Trads don't order from overseas.

My guess is demographics. I think average age@SF < average age@AAAC. I think that younger people with lower disposable income see value in the trade-off of self-measurements and indefinite wait time for a cheaper price vs. the convenience of either high-end RTW or tailor-measured shirts at higher price

You can only make conclusions about the people who actually responded to your poll. It's almost certain that the set of respondents is not at all representative of the overall membership of either SF or AAAC. As an obvious example, there's no way that 75% of the 4000 members here have Jantzen shirts.
