    To any Jewish folk who know about Shatnez, do you follow the guidelines and have linen canvas removed from a nice jacket by Oxxford, Kiton, etc? Â If you choose MTM can you request that no linen be used in the construction of the garment? Â It seems that there are exceptions to the rule, though, listed below.

    At this point all better tailors are aware of Shatnez. This is no problem on a MTM garment. Just make sure it is mentioned at the time of order and the proper canvas and under-collar canvas will be used.

    If you are interested, I have been making a shell for Tzitzis (prayer shawl that is worn under your shirt) Out of high count cotton for several customers for many years nows.

    ShirtMaven, thanks for the Shatnez info. Was simply curious.
