    Shirt ordered: Nov 1
    Confirmed: Nov 2
    Received: Nov 13

    Very quick turnaround for me as well.

    Anyone know the best way to reduce the extra room under the arm pit for Janzen? Would I just need to shorten the shoulder in order to achieve a higher ? Any suggestions?

    Thanks all!


    Are you saying the armholes are too big? If so, just tell them to reduce them by whatever amount you want.

    I submitted an order a month ago. Sent an e-mail asking about it a week ago. Haven't heard a word back.

    I suppose they must read this site, because I recieved a confirmation about 15 minutes ago.

    I have previously ordered 5 shirts in-person at Jantzen earlier this year in February - and they have my measurements on file. Latest order was 2 shirts in their superfine range: http://www.jantzentailor.com/8047.jpg http://www.jantzentailor.com/8021.jpg Ordered: Very late evening 30th Nov Acknowledged by Ricky: 2nd Dec Order arrived: today - 10th Dec Not bad at all! Very pleased with the fabrics so far from the superfine range, and will definitely pick from there in future.

    I'm in Hong kong and i just went today to look at this 'amazing' janzten

    their fabrics are horrible! Yes, they have some decent patterns but they are clearly cheap and 95% felt like sandpaper!! You all cannot be serious about the constant recommendations?? I was quite excited to see janzten but it was a huge disappointment. Buying something because it is cheap does not make it a good buy

    You should just go to TST and get cheaper shirts, equally as poor if thats what you like.

    I ended up buying some ball cufflinks and leaving

    Last order, two shirts arriving roughly ten days after ordering. Perfectly happy with both. That was a week ago, haven't been charged.

    So far it's four shirts, only paid for one.

    I own about 20 shirts from them and only 2 or 3 have poor quality fabrics. Hope you like your cufflinks.

    So far I've had a great experience with Jantzen, ordered 4 shirts so far, most came within a month. The only hitch was with the 3rd shirt that took nearly 2 months to arrive, but an email to Ricky cleared it up rather quickly, it was a plain white shirt and the fabric was out of stock.

    Just ordered a shirt yesterday (9th) and received the confirmation today (10th), which is the quickest so far.

    Just got my first Jantzen shirt. It was spot on and didn't take long either. I made some minor adjustments (longer collar points, shorter tie space) and ordered 3 more.

    What is the best and most consistent good white fabric that Jantzen has to offer?
