Cheers for the insight
. What a great pity! Sounds like a $600 rip off to me. Typical with many name brands. They start off way back when designing and making high end exclusive stuff, but when having established credentials, they end up gravitating towards maximizing their profits at a cost of quality.
Although I am not a Hermes follower, they at least have not abandoned their original stamp of quality that attracted sections of society to the brand. Many Hermes dress shirts I have seen are the business, just that the styling and cut is crap. But quality wise, no stone has been left unturned and they are up there with Kiton etc (pity that Hermes make ugly shirts

Thanks dude, Perhaps older Ricci were made to higher standards than today judging by Nataku's comment.

In the words of Obi Wan Kenobi, I have not heard that name in a long long time
If memory serves me right, this is the guy noted for his loud fashions but elegant tailoring, a bit like an earlier Gianni Versace except he would only make clothes for the rich n famous
Yeah, I saw some Attolini shirts on eBay and another seller online. They look good, but would not mind checking them out first. I do know that Attolini suits are the tits, and can see no reason why they would make great suits but average shirts. I would imagine their shirts would be up near the top of our imaginery shirt pyramid.
