    I need help figuring out the adjustments for my next Jantzen. I know the neck needs to go up (maybe 1/4"?), and the sleeves need to be longer (maybe 1"?). The length of the shirt needs at least 2". Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    It seems you've already covered the main point: longer sleeves, longer tail(although, if you want to ever wear it untuck, you shouldn't), and higher neck.
    As a matter of curiosity, when did you order/recieve this shirt?

    I think you may need more than an inch added to sleeves. It is hard to tell with the sleeves buttoned. I usually aim to have the sleeves stop at the first joint (joint closest to my wrist) while unbottoned. At this length the sleeves don't move when I bend my arm to a 90 degree angle and raise/move my hand toward my face.

    So do you think a full 2" in the sleeves? What about the rest of the sizes? Also, can he make a higher neck? I didn't know that was possible. How much higher should I go?

    Augusto, I ordered in Feb (I don't remember the exact date), and I came in last week.

    I believe you can request a higher collar.
    It's a matter of taste, really.

    It's been washed twice and ironed, so I think it's shrunk enough.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Just to give a better idea of timing, I ordered my shirts in late Feb and I got the "sorry we missed you, come pick up your package" slip yesterday.
