    A number of people have ordered from Jantzen,
    can anyone identify the mill/manufacturer i.e. Alumo, Anderson, Testa etc?

    I've also wondered where Jantzen gets their fabrics and how they can get them at such a low cost. Any takers?

    I've read that Rickie buys all the fabric on closeout or from discontinued lines. He sells out of individual selections so fast because he gets limited quantities of each one.

    Most likely his basic fabrics, Pinpoint,and broadcloth come from any number of mills in Asia.

    The fancy patterns are bought as close outs from other factories in HK or China.

    Those fabrics could come from any number of countries.
    Including, Italy, Spain, India, Turkey, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and main land china.

    I am told by Ricky......for shirts, mostly from japanese mills although some small selections may be italian/european.....he doesn't use china stuff.
