The Hand Sewn Buttonhole Thread - Page 13
Styleforum Top Picks
After having stepped away from Truzzi RTW shirts due to having found a bespoke shirtmaker, I felt I missed their buttonholes and so went back to a shop selling Truzzi shirts to try some. Either they have changed the patterns or I have changed my approach to fit and found them to not fit me properly so I opted for the MTM service Truzzi offers through the retailer.
After having received the final shirt and having worn it for some time I can say that I am a bit disappointed and feel that the quality has decreased (au contraire, the price went up!). The fit was not perfect when new (I suspect the shop assistant misinterpreted some of the adjustment I suggested) but it even got worse after some washes because the shirt shrank (an I have older RTW Truzzi shirts that still fit me better than this one after many years of use), the buttonholes are far worse than they used to be, they do not offer their usual tall MOP buttons anymore but changed to a larger and thinner model that I do not like.
One thing that remained at the usual top-level is their incredible pattern matching.
All considered, I am very probably not going to buy a Truzzi anymore (and I am a bit sad about this...) but will stick to my actual shirtmaker (that I really appreciate and, in my view, offers a better quality at a lower price point than Truzzi).
