Pretty terrible; better take it back. Let us know how it went.

3. Plain very light pink like here.

Any fabric recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks!

I am still looking for some fabric recommendations for the following three basic colors / styles.

Thanks!

Fastest Jantzen order to date, I was shocked. Might have to give em another shot soon to see if this was a fluke. Order Jan 4th - 3 shirts from the extrafine range Email from Ricky telling me about a fabric out of stock, responded same day Jan 10th Response from Ricky Jan 12th Arrival to me (USA) Jan 25th Edit: Also noticed they updated their buttons, my last shirts from a year ago or so had all the same size MOP buttons even for the gauntlet, etc. Now they have the smaller size to go with the 'normal' size.

Now that Modern Tailor cut back on their on-sale fabrics and raised their prices (no 20% vouchers), I am coming back to Jantzen. I also find that my one Jantzen shirt is much better made than the two shirts I got from MT

Any fabric recommendations? The wikidot is almost a year old. Given the inconsistency of Jantzen fabrics, are the extra-fine fabrics a safer bet?

I may join you. My Jantzen shirts still have all their buttons...

No recs.

My sister's heading to HK, and offered to do some shopping for me. Would it make sense for me to send my measurements in to Jantzen and have her pick up a couple of shirts for me? Or do they work faster for walk-in orders? I believe she's only in town for a few days.

They used to do walk-in orders within 48 hours, but I haven't been for a few years.

They work faster during for in-store customers. I got 48 hour turnaround a couple weeks ago.

Ordered November
They billed me December 18
I got an email before Chinese New Year indicating that fabric was our of stock
I got a follow-up email indicating other fabric out of stock
I gave them 3 additional choices
They indicated shirt would be made asap after chinese new year.
Never received anything after two follow up attempts to contact them

Today, April 1, 2011 I disputed the charge with my bank.

Received email on March 7th re fabric being out of stock.
Responded to email on March 7th with a new fabric selection.

Definately better construction and fabrics than moderntailor.

Today, April 1, 2011 I disputed the charge with my bank.

I placed my order on March 2, got the confirmation email almost right away. My Amex was promtly charged, but I never received anything, nor have I ever heard back from Ricky. Disputed my charge on April 11 as well and got a "good will" adjustment for the amount charged. I don't know what that means, except that I don't have to pay the charge. But if Amex didn't claw back its money from Jantzen, then the latter got away with an outright fraud. If Amex did get its money back, what's the point for Jantzen to frustrate its customers in this way?

I completely agree that Jantzen is way better than modertailor in terms of construction, workmanship, style and fabric.

One fabric is out. This sound negative, but it's a rather quick confirmation of my order.
