I received my first Jantzen shirt a while ago, and I was hoping to get some opinions here before ordering more. Â I took the best photos I could get in my mirror; sorry they're not sharper. The shirt is much nicer than the pictures reveal--I included JT's swatch below to give an idea. Â Some other details you can't see are mitered french cuffs and a split yoke. OK, so I already know I'm a right scary-looking dude who desperately needs a shave -- what I'm after is suggestions on the collar. Â Right for my face? Â Correct height? It's a regular spread--JT's #4 or #5 if memory serves, with standard height and 2.75" length. Â I'm trying to decide if I need a bigger collar, and whether to stick with the spread, widen it more, or chuck it and go back to point collars. The cuff length is another concern. Â I recently had all my suits and sportcoats alteredÂ in the sleeves, and I'm not sure I like the results. Â With this shirt the cuff seems to lie flush with the jacket sleeves; I'd like to have 1/2" linen showing since I'm tall. Â I'm not sure if the jacket is too long or the shirt too short. I'd welcome any other comments on the shirt styling, too. thanks, Adam C.
