Jantzen, Reliable at last? - Page 107

post #1591 of 2007
Received my 8061 last night. Ordered Oct. 1 Aknowleged Oct. 2 CC charged Oct. 17 Received Nov. 6 Slightly slower than my previous orders, but still reasonable. The fit is finally spot-fucking-on! It's currently in the washer, but I'll try to iron it tomorrow afternoon and post some pics. Really like the fabric, by the way. It's smooth to the touch and is extremely wrinkle resistant.

That makes no sense. Are you ordering the normal or 'extra fine' fabrics?

If it's the latter, I've washed mine over 20 times each and the total shrinkage was 1" in the chest (out of 43") and a little under 0.75" in the sleeves, both of which I had planned for.

If the fit is spot on 'fresh' from the mail package, it will be too tight in a few washes.

Sorry to rain on your parade.

I don't know, none of my shirts from Ricky have shrank that much after multiple washes. I decided to throw this wash this one in warm water and then threw it in the drier for about 7 mins. It shrank just a little bit more than others, but it is still good. Here's the picture I promised.

Looks pretty good to me too...good job

Thanks guys, I'm very happy with the fit myself BTW, has anybody ordered a "regular" interlining for their collar? How is it compared to the "soft" option?

I generally get regular, and it's pretty stiff, but still takes on nice form with a tie. I will probably try out soft in the future.

^ is that you in all those pictures? In the first jacket, you look fat, while the jacketless shot shows that you clearly are not.

Yes, it's all me. I've been known to undulate 30-50 lbs per day depending on my diet.

PS: I think what you are seeing is a combination of two things:

A. The cut of the suit is a sack, which means no front darts. It will look fuller, but is not as full in perspective, see full body shot here.
B. The suit is new to me, so it hasn't quite settled on my body yet - it takes a number of wears before that takes place.

Aah, I see. But I have to say, that the high button stance, imho, doesn't look good on you.

He looks great, what are you talking about?
post #1603 of 2007
I agree that it's a very good outfit, the shoes are very nice, the pattern and colour mixing is subtle but interesting, but I just think that if the buttoning point was 1" or maybe 1.5" lower, it would look a lot better. The way it is now, his upper body is cut short, the quarters gape open in an unpleasant way, the whole lower part of the body is too elongated. It doesn't look harmonious.

I have a crucial question (maybe it's been answered but I can't read through every page of this thread):

If you send them a shirt to be copied, will they make your new shirt so that it will have the fit as the sample shirt AFTER it's been fully shrunk?

Seems to me the main problem with gregaz's suit is that the pinstripes slope outward. Ever seen those optical illusions where two lines slope outward?
