I ordered the diagonal cuts on my checker shirts too.

A serious question--no really. What do you think about "Model # William"? Specifically, the "fancy pattern for collar and cuff"? I think this looks okay, though probably only for casual shirts. If I recall correctly, I saw something like this in the Turnbull & Asser window on Jermyn Street.

I should like to point out that the big London makers will turn around orders for their shirts slower than Jantzen. The latter's shirts are well constructed and happen to be a bargain - I simply can't understand why people are whining. Give Ricky a break.

I'm not sensing anybody is whining. It's just a game of expectations. Earlier this year, turnaround time was about 4 weeks. It has grown to 12 weeks or more, so older customers accustomed to the shorter turnaround time get nervous that their favorite bargain shirtmaker is (a) in over his head with work and/or (b) lost their order. Everybody (me included) seems to not want to pester Ricky to inquire on status for fear they be blacklisted as though by the Soup Nazi. I am content to wait patiently in line for my soup.

(Henry Boogers @ 20 Dec. 2004, 11:02) I wonder how many customers they drive away with those samples they show in the 'lastest styles' page.
What are you talking about?  I LOVE those.  I just ordered this, except I went for the 5-button collar, 4-button cuffs, and got it in pink with mint green collar and cuffs:
Apparently too much is not enough. koji

Actually, those sample shirts are not "styles" made by Jantzen, they are pics of actual shirts that people have ordered. Ricky just suggests.....he never tells you what to order or make designs of his own. You'll notice that those styles have names....those are the customers who originated that shirt. By the way, it is perfectly all right to harass Ricky for your orders....just do it by phone rather than by email. And don't whinge about him on styleforum, it just gives him a (totally undeserved) bad name.

My sentiments exactly.

I don't think the problem for anyone is the length of time for delivery, it is the total lack of predictability and Ricky refuses to follow a cue system. I have not tried various methods, but a web order with a phone call a few weeks later to "clarify your order" seems to work very well.
