    I just received my first shirt from Jantzen and am mostly pleased with it. Sleeve length is good, but I think it's a tiny bit too baggy and the neck is a little tight. I am thinking ordering #2 when Ricky ends his embargo on the 18th and was wondering if I just need to enter changes on the webpage or do I need to do everything all over again? TIA

    You can do either one. I always like reentering all my measurements.

    Ricky told me that he would prefer that I give +/- measurements where needed, and he would make adjustments based on my measurements on file. He said it was "easier" for him that way. Just tell him in the comments section of the order form what needs to be bigger or smaller, and by how much.

    Keep in mind that, at least in my experience, Jantzen accounts for no shrinkage. This is most apparent in the sleeve and neck measurements.

    I received my Jantzen shirt yesterday.  I had ordered it on December 27th.  Anyway, the wait was worth it.  I remember Johnny Norman answering a question I had by saying take careful measurements; order the form fitting shirt; and it will be fine.  He was right.  The shirt came out almost perfect.  I expected this shirt to be just an experiment to use to adjust the measurements for the second order.  About the only thing I plan on changing is to make the cuffs a little looser. I e-mailed Ricky to ask him when I can place a second order but haven't heard back from him yet.  As soon as the moratorium is lifted, I will be ordering a few more.

    fop, you might consider calling during business hours. I just received my order on thursday, and I placed my order on March 22. It was my first order, and I only ordered one.

    Question to those who've called:

    The only reason I haven't is that I reckoned it'd be a bit chaotic what with all the orders he gets. Have you found this to be the case? I suppose he's got a file, with orders to be filled, filed by last name?

    I submitted my order on 2 February. I have called on two occasions. As long as you do it during normal business hours you will get Ricky. He can look your order up and give you a guesstimate when it will finish.

    As far as the shirt goes, I am very happy with it. It is my first MTM shirt and I think he did a great job. I will take a photo and post it for all of you to critique.
