I thought the UK was 'acceptable' in the fiefdom of the Trads, but that they preferred the American spin (the BB OCBD, trench, polo coat, etc.) on everything British. Isn't it hard to tell when the Trads have tongue-in-cheek, considering threads like "College Degree: Trad?" and "Most Trad Dog," etc.? (Do they ever have tongue in cheek? Is cheeky humor Trad?)

You are certainly correct. Let me specify that the disparity is amongst thoses who RESPONDED to the two polls. The broader membership may, or may not, be reflected. My guess is probably not. I doubt many non-posters have actually taken the leap to buy from Jantzen. However, the sheer disparity amongst respondents from one forum to the other is very telling.

No, and no intention of doing so. Process doesn't sound like it's for me. If I go for bespoke shirts, I'll visit Carl from CEGO (or Charvet or AK if I hit the MegaMillions).

In the meantime, I'll just make do with my RTW PS, RJ, H&K, T&A, Charvet, Pink , and Lewin shirts.

Like I said on AAAC, I've ordered from them several times and have never gotten a shirt. Based on these past experiences I've decided that I will never order from them again.

I think I'm just more broke.

Seriously, though, I think Jantzen's great. I just wish I'd get my shirts...

I've had a similar experience. I ordered a single test shirt online in Feburaruy 2005 which never appeared. Obviously, I'm not too concerned about not receiving my Jantzen shirt or I would have called, but in the interim, I've ordered (and received ) MTM or custom shirts from Lands' End, WW Chan, Individualized Shirts, and Brooks Brothers. While I wouldn't mind a long wait, the minimal customer service I expect is an acknowledgment of my order, followed by receiving the shirt. Ricky obviously doesn't need more business.

I think you just hit on something that embodies why I won't consider using Jantzen anymore. I don't feel that the product is so good that I have to beg to be a customer or jump through hurdles to be a customer. I don't want to be a customer of anybody who doesn't want me to be their customer.

There may be a little over-reaction here... Are you sure your order actually went through? Have you tried to either call or email Ricky to get a confirmation that he got your order?

>25 shirts and contenplating my next order.

Along with the points already made, I think a distinction between AAAC and SF should be pointed out... that (based on my time in the Streetware forum) a lot of people here are rather trim and need/want very fitted shirts. As you get older, I think the appeal decreases a bit. Just an idea.

I'm in the 6-10 range; so thankful that I went to the store for my first time. Ricky measured me, so everything fits like a dream. For a recent college grad, nothing is greater than having a stream of exceptionally high quality dress shirts for the price of... a shirt from the Gap I can't even wear to work? Amazing.

Jantzen seems to be an acquired taste that must be built upon repeated experiences.

I've emailed Ricky several times and he has not responded. If he did, I'd order some shirts....
