I dont remember if it was 8104 or 8105, whichever is oxford (seems the site removed the words for those 2!)

Hmm, looks like they have a few... the stripes all have to be of equal width to be bengal stripes - sometimes called 'candy stripes'.

I would love Jantzen to have a few regular oxfords. Instead, they are all french oxfords. Unlucky.

Is shipping (to Europe, in my case) included in the 360 or so HKD? I couldn't find anything on the website.

What's the difference?

If you read Alex's discourse on shirtings you will find your answer. It has to do with the size of the fibers and the number of threads in the waft and weft. It's makes you dizzy trying to figure that out.

Basically, a standard oxford is heavier and the French or pinpoint oxfords are lighter.

I'm fairly sure it is. But don't put your hopes up. The shirts normally arrive in an interoffice envelope and the postage stamps probably cost him about a $1. The again, my last order was shipped EMS and I didn't get charged for that either. It might depend on how much you order.

In the Extra Fine, there is 8281 & 8301, and in the 84xx series, there are Italian, Heavy Italian, Diamond, and Royal oxfords. There are some other Italians in the upper numbers. Not sure how these compare to a "Standard" oxford, but I would think at least some of them would work.

I asumme for 360HKD, you are talking about the extra fine fabrics? If so, they are not included. Shipping would cost between USD3-8 per shirt depending on where you are. They don't usually tell you the actual shipping charges, I suspect it is arbitrarily set depending on how much you order and possibly Ricky's mood. I've always looked at the charges on my credit card, subtracted the cost of the shirts including any add ons like MOP buttons etc and found in all cases that there is a minimal shipping charge tagged to my order.
post #1285 of 2007
FYI the three superfine fabrics I ordered with MOP buttons came out to $166.24 USD shipped to usa...
also ricky confirmed same day, as with my last order...

they are quite up to speed!

I hope to have these within the next week or two...

On the collar sizes, what do the measurements refer to. I assume the latter measurement is the height of the collar band. The first measurement refers to the length of the collar point?

Does anyone know if Jantzen uses non-iron fabrics that are wrinkle resistant? I can't find anything definitve on this and I love just using my washer and dryer on BB shirts at home. Of course, I also like shirts that don't fit like tents which is why I'm considering Jantzen if I go to HK.

Thanks!

That's correct, although when ordering you can specify each measurement yourself.

These came in today - this is my third order this year. 1. Jantzen*3131, Charcoal Gray Twill, 100's, 2 Ply, 100% Italian Cotton. 2. Jantzen*3081, Black Mini Gingham, 100's, 2 Ply, 100% Italian Cotton 3. #11, Super Fine White Plain Cotton, 140's, 2Ply, 100% Sea Island Cotton 4. Jantzen 8251, HKD$360 Blue luxury twill. Super 100's 2 ply,100% European Cotton I can't tell the difference between 1 and 4 - so the regular twill is just as good as the super fine. The Black Mini Gingham became a medium blue mini gingham. IMHO, The Sea Island cotton is nice thin fabirc for the summer time - almost silky like - so I stand by my earlier comments that jantzen is a hell alot better than those $200+ hand stitch shirts for the price. All in all - I like the shirts however they used by previous style as oppose to the new ones I ordered. But what the hell - I'm happy with it. One thing I'm not thrill about is that jantzen added a "Jantzen tailor" tag to the back of shirt - I'll probably cut that shit off.
