    Hey guys, This is my second order with Jantzen. They got most of the details right this time - the fit sure seems spot-on to me. I ordered the traditional English spread as you can see, no chest pocket, and a slim fit. Also, I inquired about the logo that Ricky had placed on the back of my shirt, since I did not request it. He says it's standard, and I was the first to complain yet. Let me know what you think. Sorry for the dark pic: [​IMG] Note the monogram: [​IMG] Hand-sewn side seams (with metallic stitching): [​IMG] Re-enforced side seam gusset: [​IMG] Super thick hand-sewn MOP buttons (strawberry flavor): [​IMG] Split Yoke: [​IMG] French Cuffs: [​IMG] All in all I am pleased. I plan to place another order soon.

    I think the shoulders are a bit narrow, maybe extend them .5" on each side [​IMG]

    Hey guys,

    This is my second order with Jantzen. They got most of the details right this time - the fit sure seems spot-on to me. I ordered a light pink windowpane in Italian 120's cotton. I guess 'pink windowpane' means light blue Cotton/Poly Super 25's in Chinese. I ordered the traditional English spread as you can see, no chest pocket, and a slim fit. Also, I inquired about the logo that Ricky had placed on the back of my shirt, since I did not request it. He says it's standard, and I was the first to complain yet. Let me know what you think.

    I have never laughed so hard in my life. I almost spilled my coffee on my laptop. Hate to think what would have happen if my T41 absorbed my coffee[​IMG] .

    Great post man - keep it up - it sure made my day.

    But the Brooks Brothers salesman told me it was supposed to fit like that.

    Hilarious. If it wasn't so close to many of he actual Jantzen posts, it would be even funnier...

    The awkwardly held arms were a nice touch.

    Am I the only one, or is the left cuff about 1/4" too big? (left as one looks at the picture - right cuff of course)
    Or do you typically wear a thick watch, in which case the cuff is spot on!

    The funny thing is that the neck looks like it actually fits. So there are people who have the same size neck as you, but are literally twice the man you are in the body.
