I do not know how janten can put $20-35 dollars worth of fabric into a $46 shirt and still make money. they do not say what mill or what construction.

Just wondering if you received your shirt and, if so, how you liked it?

Quite alot. I got 8113, which is white with a bit of texture. I liked it enough that I went back and got another (different style). I also got 8122, which is nice as well.

I don't know for sure either, but I was told they buy end bolts, remnants and discontinued pattern cloth from shirt maufacturers and not necessarily (or ever) from the textile mills directly.

I sent them a sample shirt about a month ago and they still have not received it...

I ordered one in *8123. It is good. I haven't worn/washed it yet. But again, for that kind of money, its still a deal!

Too bad they made the button hole colour wrong. I ordered "self colour" and they used "red" instead of white. It looks kind of "loud" to me. So I am thinking of selling this shirt.

I ordered 8061 on December 23. They confirmed with me about 10 days and said they would send it ASAP, so I hope it arrives soon. Haven't been charged for it yet. Can't wait for it to get here!

How does the fabric hold up in terms of pilling?

Ricky has delivered the shirt to me. and I'm ecstatic. The fabric appears feels and looks as nice as a fabric used by Harvie and Hudson. The button quality is nice too. I cannot complain at all. First time customer, and the fit is very close as far as my n00b self can tell. I accidentally typed in the comments to make the right cuff larger, and when I got my shirt I thought maybe he made a mix up, but he copied my instructions exactly as ordered as I made a typo. I guess I'll be a right handed watch wearer on this shirt. I wish he also left a sleeve shrinkage allowance. This is 8061, I'm sorry the photos are so worthless, please do not beat me.
