Jantzen, Reliable at last? - Page 102

Most people here can tell the difference between a heavy twill and a thin broadcloth. I think.

Just a plug for the fabrics wiki: http://jantzenfabrics.wikidot.com/

Thanks to the folks who contributed!

I really like the "semi rounded" collar shown on on 2549: http://jantzenfabrics.wikidot.com/2549

No, #22 white twill. Ace Rimmer is being nice enough to send me a closeup of his shirt with it and then I'll post comparison pics. Pretty sure the difference won't be subtle.

I have a hunch that they sometimes send out fabrics that they think are similar to the ones you want.

Well, here's the comparison pic. Let's play which one is the twill I actually ordered and which is a very sheer poly blend! Somehow I doubt I'll get anywhere with Ricky. Ah, internet frustration. Caveat emptor.

Or is Ricki correct that the SCYE is too small and I measured incorrectly? Thanks.
Too late now I'm sure, but in the past I described my armhole measurements as 7" laid flat. A scye is measured, I think, from front to back over the shoulder but not around. This is merely info I found with some googling. Edit: Either there are several methods or my recollection is off. Click

I've just added 8421 and 8568. For some reason there is no line break on the index page but ive added my own pics to the reviews.

7 inches? That seems really high/small. I indicated laid flat, but Ricky said they measure curved. We ended at 9.25 (down from 9.5 and 9.75 so we shall see!).

Sorry to hear that needler. I guess the answer to the title of this thread is a still a no. I'd be afraid to order that fabric again until he restocks. Does he ever? If you intend to ever order again, let him know your complaint. He may add in a replacement shirt at no charge as part of the order. Outright replacements when he has to swallow the shipping seem to be like too much hard work, based on others eperiences.

I asked Ricki to reduce the arm scythe by an inch, assuming it was measured along the circumference. The result is maybe a 1/4 of that... if I'm being generous.

I had a simular experience once, although R. send me a complete different fabric. Colour as well. I asked him what he could do for me and he offered to sent me a shirt free of charge with my next order. And so he did (to make sure I reminded him in the 'remarks') So perhaps a polite inquiry

Can I play?

Seriously, sorry to hear that it didn't work out, I hope Ricky can make things right for you.

To get the line break you have to put a blank space at the beginning of the next line. I have no idea why.

But thanks for the contribution--great pictures!

+1 on pictures of collars! I think i may go through at least 10 different shirts before I settle on a collar & size that I like...
