    My Jantzen shirt!

    I think I placed the order back in the end of February. This is my second order. I went with a white French oxford which was a really good choice - soft, rich cotton with a subtle woven texture. The buttons are also nice - wok-shaped MOP. Collar is an English spread.

    I am very happy with the fit, I am now confident in placing multi-shirt orders and will do so soon.

    Sure, it takes a little while to get the shirts, but its great finding an unexpected surprise in the mail box.

    Here are some pics, please excuse the un-ironed shirt.

    Fit looks awesome! And I really like the collar treatment...is it the "closer to the edge" or "invisible" one?

    I think it's edge stitching, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Nice, 2 button cuffs are definitely the way to go.

    I think all my future orders will be with 2-button cuffs, maybe a few French cuffs too.

    I placed my order a few weeks after yours, hopefully it means it will be on the way soon.

    It fits you fairly slim, do you think it will hold up after a few washes?

    Nice fabric by the way.

    I like my shirts to fit slim (I look fat in that picture, but I am not). My previous Jantzen was in the same fabric, except for it was light blue. It has shrunk a bit after numerous washes, fits me perfectly, but slim (maybe too slim for a work environment). I added 2" to the chest and waist to compensate, on this shirt.

    That's the way I like shirts to fit too - with an ever so slight tug at strategic locations. Extremely difficult for me to find in a RTW shirt so gonna attempt the MTO thing now too. You look like you have a pretty good physique - but just my opinion that the khaki's throw off the look. Just my opinion, but khaki's not my thing - maybe they work for you though.
