    I ordered my first batch of shirts last night. Will advise as to how long it takes.

    Since when has Ricky started putting those little Jantzen tags in his shirts? I'm definitely not a fan of that, especially considering you asked for monograms on the yoke.

    I received an order two weeks ago, and it did not have those tags. I've ordered on and off for several years, and these photos are the first that I've ever seen them. I've never made a special request, but perhaps my file is flagged as "no tags" for some reason. Just as well, I'd just have to cut them out every time.

    For as long as I've been getting shirts from him. You can remove it if you want - or you can ask him not to attach it

    I have two Jantzen shirts, the last of which came in January. Neither of them came with the tags, and I've never seen another Jantzen shirt on this forum with one of those tags. It's not a big deal, but I'm surprised he used the tags with a monogram on the yoke.

    My last couple of shirts from a few weeks ago had the tags, so did my first set a year or so ago. It's not a big deal, is it?

    Another example of Jantzen's "consistency". Most of my shirts (starting in 2005) have these tags, some don't. The 5-shirt order I just received doesn't... [​IMG] I couldn't care less about them to be honest

    the wiki page highlights this inconsistency

    So ... is it safe to say that if Ricky does not confirm your order within a week, he is skipping it?

    Unbelievable turnaround at Jantzen these days:
    - ordered five shirts on 8/21
    - order acknowledged by Ricky on 8/25
    - full order sent from HK on 8/30
    - received in NYC today (9/4)

    [​IMG]


    Well, I'd wait for some more data points before jumping to the conclusion that they're consistent (although on average turnaround does seem to be getting better.) I'm still waiting on an order from July, and my 8/17 order has not yet been acknowledged.

    Where is he putting the tag? In 5-6 orders over, say, 2 years or so, I've never gotten a shirt with a tag (unless you're talking inside the neck)? If it's an external tag, I would definitely find that annoying.

    Thanks, I misunderstood. Those tags have appeared on some, if not all, of my shirts. I thought the concern was that they had started using visible external tags, as with Faconnable or the like.

    Question for repeat customers:
    If I specified changes for my second order, does that become the default? In other words, will I need to restate those changes for my 3rd order?

    Thanks.

    Yes to your first alternative. Once you've made changes, those become part of your default order (unless, as I have in one case, you specify that it's a one-time change and you do not want your default options changed).
