Really too bad he's not here anymore; he should certainly take the Soup Nazi comparison as a huge compliment.

ordered mid-feb, 3 emails later still no reply. Ive got about 20 shirts from Ricky but the unreliability of Jantzen is making me wonder if I should just move on.

Have you been charged?

I ordered about the same time and my card has been charged but still waiting for delivery. No reply yet to my latest email. I have to admit I liked punctual Jantzen better.

Have you guys had any luck calling jantzen? I called a few times and after picking up the phone, they go silent when I ask for Ricky.

I just looked and they did charge me after my order, but it was for the last order which they delivered on time back in January. The latest order has not been charged yet.

Ive called Ricky twice and it has done the trick both times. I got my email confirmation later that day, then 3 weeks later the shirts arrived.

I looked at the mytailor site earlier today- I have to admit its much more organized and easier to navigate than the jantzen site. the shirts are twice the price, but it just might be worth it to get some reliable service. Plus they come to DC all the time. Im going to check them out during their next trip.

Anyone know some good lightweight extra fine fabrics that I can use for an OCBD?

Have you tried or heard of Simpson Sin tailor? They tour the US twice a year. They are in DC today.

A light weight OCBD is a little unusual. The 8104 white french oxford is not the lightest but probably more appropriate for an OCBD. Over time it has turned into possibly my favourite fabric from Jantzen so far. My last ordering experience: Ordered on 16h Jan Confirmed on 22nd Jan Received on 10th Feb

well i prefer ocbds as i dont wear a jacket to work - but it is getting hot out... should i dare go for a non oxford cloth button down?

Not my thing, but a lot of people on SF seem to like the NOCBD. The lightest Jantzen cloth I have experience with is the No 11 white sea island cotton (yes I have lots of white shirts ). Would also recommend and it's probably the lightest cloth Jantzen carries.

I am starting to have the same feeling.

So does that mean you don't want to go through the trouble of calling?

I have been thinking about mytailor - they tend to get good SF praise - but am somewhat hesitant, as I feel like I have (almost) gotten my measurents down with Ricky...

Whats a good blue candy stripe fabric? Preferably lighter weight. Also, is their linen any good?
post #1813 of 2007
Just recieved a shirt in the mail today that I ordered in January. I'm getting tired of this.

I spend a lot of time overseas in third world countries where calling isnt that easy. My usual routine is place an order for a few shirts before I leave the states so that they are there waiting for me when I get back home- but lately that hasnt been happening. Im also reluctant to start over again, but if it means a more convenient website and much better service, I'll do it. Plus the ability to actually see and touch some fabrics when mytailor stops in DC is a huge plus. I think Ive just talked myself into it.

What sucks is he now charges your credit card before shipping. So I already paid but still no shirts. May have to do a chargeback.
