post #1983 of 2007

Today I received the 4 shirts I ordered.

 

I am quite happy with the result. Any problem I have is user error, I'm guessing. For instance I made the hip region too thight, or gained weight in that area in the mean time. Further I wouldn't choose that much extra watch space again, nor 'soft' interlining for French cuffs. Folded over it's rather hard.

 

Fabrics are, from top to bottom and I'm guessing somewhat here:

 

Dobby #1 or Jantzen*3774

Dobby #60

Jantzen*3752

Jantzen*3521 (with contrasting collar and cuffs)

 

(I am not sure since one of the fabrix I ordered (2308) was out of stock and I replaced that one with either 3752 or 3774 and I don't know which was chosen to replace what.)

 

I chose the contrast collar to mayhaps wear with a Jacquet to a wedding I was best man at. This wedding was at the 24th and 25th of june. This is my one indirect criticism as for now. Ordering takes more time thasn with Modern tailor, for instance. In the end I just wore a suit for unrelated reasons, so no matter.

 

Anyway the shirts are all unwashed and unironed. I only fitted one as of now.

Good update, it's been a while since I have ordered from Jantzen so it's always interesting to see how they are doing.

Any reason why you wouldn't go for the extra watch space again? Personally I've been wishing Jantzen would allow for more space. All my Jantzen shirts have specified the same option as you (1/2" extra) and it barely fits over my wrist with a watch. I am not wearing a huge Seiko Monster or anything; my typical watch is a Seiko diver with a rather small 38mm bezel. I have to put on my watch first and then the shirt, because the other way around won't work! shog[1].gif

My latest experience, ordered 6 shirts on Sept 26th, email confirmation next day, one of the fabrics was out, sent 4 alternatives - Received entire order October 11.

2 weeks turn around, lucky icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif or ?

So what's the consensus on how these hold up over time?

I have three I ordered a year or two ago and all of them got wider and shorter after 20-something washes...
post #1989 of 2007
My patience has worn out after being a loyal Jantzen client for nearly 5 years. Finally received last order - but only because I had to call Ricky twice over a 3 month period.

Have completed 3 transactions thus far. $317 for six shipped to the states is a fair deal. My last order was received within 9 days of order.

This is not the norm, I realize. I view dress shirts as "fungibles". Same as socks and underwear.

I've got about 15 shirts from Ricky and no problems with any of them. They usually come in with some threads sticking out here and there so I cut those off and that's it... Washed them dozens of times and they seem to get a liiiiite tighter; no stretching though.

Ordered March 26
Confirmed March 28
Delivered April 28

3 shirts, as promised, no errors.

Whole some of the HKD310-360 fabrics remain, it seems more and more of the new shirts are in the HKD410-460 range.
post #1993 of 2007
Haven't posted here much but found this thread really useful.

I've got a few OTR shirts that I am very happy re: the cut - just needs a few minor adjustments and they can then serve as the silhouettes for future shirts.

Is Jantzen good at doing that sort of thing, i.e. largely copying a shirt?

Thanks.
