Gregaz,

I really like your blue Gingham shirt. In combination with the blazer, it reminds of the style of 'Better off Ted'. What is the collar style, is it higher than the typical 1.75" and 3" points?

Thanks in advance,

Agreed, blue gingham shirt is particularly nice, what fabric is this?
post #1608 of 2007
Fabric is 8061 and he has a P15 collar with 3.25" points.

Is that the P315 collar in all of the shots or just the gingham? I really like the roll of the collar in the first and fourth shots.

Hey everyone,

got my first Jantzen shirt a little while back. Total turnaround time was approx 4 weeks. I am in need of quite a few more shirts, but before doing so, can you provide me with some constructive criticisms?

These are the Measurements i went with. I know i need to increase the necksize a bit.
Neck - 15.2 --- try 15.5
Half shoulder Sleeves
Right 24.75
Left 24.75
Shoulder 17
Chest 37"
Waist 31.5"
Hips 34.5"
Length 29 3/4"
Normal Shoulder
Bicep 13.4
Armhole 18.0
Cuff Right - 7

Feedback would be much appreciated. This was my first MTM shirt and I am fairly happy with it. Well that is until i get all the critiques from you all i'm sure

As stated above, all collars are P-15 with 3.25" points and regular interlining. The type of fabric also has an effect on the roll ... which is why I may go with soft interlining next time. Found a couple more for you.

no answer yet - can someone please say something about this? : "If you send them a shirt to be copied, will they make your new shirt so that it will have the same fit as the sample shirt AFTER it's been fully shrunk?"
post #1614 of 2007
On Saturday I asked this very question as my brother is bringing his favourite shirt and jacket for copying next month. The young guy told me that they always allow for some cotton shrinkage and quite a bit for linen.

I'm going back again in about an hour so I'll ask Ricky this question for you and post his answer in about 4 hours from now.

BTW all you critical eyes, 3 pages back I posted pics of my new Jantzen blue blazer and got no response. Was it that bad? I really liked it as a first up so would appreciate any opinion.

That P-15 collar is just about the perfect collar I think. Are we all sure that's what it is?
post #1615 of 2007
The collar style is related to the coat IMHO. I personally think that the collar points should align with the lapels. To me (I preface all comments with this...) I think it looks silly to wear a large spread collar with a 'skinny' suit. When the collar points lay under the lapels, the outfit looks awkward. that said, the P15 seems to complement most conservatively cut suits. I might try that cut with a double-button high collar shirt. Any thoughts and comments are appreciated.

Ricky says, " If you ask for shrinkage allowance then we will tailor accordingly. If you don't ask, we will copy to the exact specifications of your shirt."

If you ask for shrinkahe they allow about 1/4 of an inch for sleeves and 1/4-1/2 for the collar.

Hope that helps.

It certainly does. I'll remember to ask for it. Thanks.

I kinda like the look of having the collar points just below the lapel...but then again...I do have rather strange tastes

You gotta put it on and show us how it looks when you wear it.

This. Your photos were closeups which show nothing on a blazer. BTW, thanks to the recent posters who are posting their communication with Ricky. He is impossible to get an answer by email, and isn't that great on the phone, so having communication straight from him on here is great.
