    So far I've recieved all the shirts I've ordered.

    I've been happy with all the shirts I've recieved after the first which needed it's measurments refined (included the "starfish" buttons which I don't care for, either).

    Next question for the poll. Of those who have not recieved shirts, how many were charged?

    Cheers,
    D

    So, lawyerdad, how were your shirts? Any thoughts on the fabric? I'm wearing my JKT00017 shirt today and love it.
    The fabric is great. I don't have the numbers at hand but have them written down somewhere. Most were the slightly more expensive premium fabrics. I'll try to remember to take and post some pictures. I have a few minor quibbles with this order. No monogram on any of the shirts(I'll survive), plus the starfish button thing I mentioned. No big deal, obviously, and perhaps attributable to my being a bit lazy and saying "just like my last order except . . ." rather than spelling everything out again. These oversights may also have to do with them rushing to complete my order after losing it for a while, who knows? But the fit looks good, and the fabrics are great, so on balance I'm happy.

    Got my latest order in the mail yesterday. Four weeks to the day from when I placed the order.

    One additional note about forgotten details: I ordered a mix of fc and regular cuff shirts. I had asked that they not put an extra button on the sleeve packet on the fc shirts, but all the shirts came with that extra button. Here's what I had said in my order, which I think is pretty clear: "On the first three shirts (49, 24, 95) please use french cuffs, same style as previous order, but with no extra button on sleeve slit/placket. " I'm guessing that having lost my order for a while, they rushed a bit and overlooked these details (that sleeve button, the monogram, etc.) But even with those minor annoyances I like the shirts much better than and RTW shirt I could get for a reasonable multiple of the price. Anyway, the fabrics this time were:
    JKT0038: http://http://www.jantzentailor.com/JKT0038.htm The colors look fantastic and the material feels great on this one, but if a few places on the underside of one sleeve I noticed some tiny areas where the red/pink color appears to have "bled" a bit - looks like I spilled a few small drops of cranberry juice on myself. This did not happen on any of the other shirts, all of which are both a nice weight (non-transparent, comfortable) and with very bright, vibrant colors/patterns.
    JKT0049: http://www.jantzentailor.com/JKT0049.htm (open to suggestions on tie colors to match with this one, which is a bit "businer" than I normally wear);
    JKT0024: http://www.jantzentailor.com/jkt0024.htm
    JKT 0095:
    JKT0089: http://www.jantzentailor.com/JKT0089.htm
