Sorry I've not got round to pictures yet. Will probably wait until they've done the alterations so you can see the finished article unless I do it this evening.
Quality-wise, it seems pretty good so far. At least as good as any RTW Jermyn Street shirt at a similar price.
Just to follow up on this point. The suit in the window is apparently from their bespoke price-point of Â£1500, whereas having had the opportunity to examine an MTM suit it's a fully machine-made product (which is more in keeping with the price).
The suit is cut in the shop in London, then made up elsewhere - fully canvassed with horn buttons and neatly done. Any subsequent alterations will be done in the London shop. Turnaround time is 4-5 weeks.
That said, there's nothing wrong with the construction of Jantzen's shirts, to my (fairly untrained) eyes at least. No fusing as far as I can remember, and they seem solid enough.
At their ridiculously low price point, it's obviously an option to consider, but I would frankly only use them for more casual shirts. But sure, if you have the patience for some trial and error, you can certainly get some good shirts out of it. If you can be bothered, it might even be possible to buy cloth yourself and send it to them?
No idea if any of this answered any questions, if you're curious about anything specific, feel free to ask.
Now I've got them back the fit is excellent except they've taken it in a bit too much around the chest so there is just a bit of pull.
Actually had a shirt made up over the summer. I had it done in the £85 range in a simple white and it came out with a very good fit.
When I went to re-order recently (ordered tow more shirts and a MTM suit) I was impressed that I had so much control over the collar shape, they were able to adjust the spread and height as I wanted.
My overall instinct is that for standard business wear (i.e. white and blue shirts) I think they are great value in London though I think I prefer Emmett for more casual shirts and the range of cloth.
