Anyone here have any experiences with them?

I have seen the brand on Yoox but do not have any direct experience with it. I will say, however, that some of these "Napoli" brands on Yoox are quite terrible in quality (e.g., Salvatore Caliendo Napoli - entirely machine made with plastic buttons).

There is one Vincenzo Di Ruggiero shirt on Yoox currently:

If you zoom in, the shirt has hand-made buttonholes, mop buttons, side gussets, lots of hand-work and trim design. What are the prices like for the brand?

From that yoox photo I can't tell whether those buttonholes are handstitched or if the buttons are MoP, but I saw some VdR shirts locally and they had more handwork than my Barba and Finamores, probably about as much as a couple of my old Borrellis.

The ones I saw was more casual in nature than the one on yoox. What was interesting about them, was that the shirting was the softest I've yet come across, from some kind of prewash treatment I believe. They also had unfused cuffs and collars and probably the nicest MoP buttons I've seen so far.

The SA said they make shirts w/ varying levels of material and varying amounts of handwork and that what they had chosen was pretty much top of their line, though I think he said they made some with even more handwork (not that I care all that much about exuberant levels of handwork - nice buttonholes are pretty much all I hope for).

Prices were from $350 to $420.

Thread necro since I took a leap on a couple of these from Yoox - they have some very cheap in their current sale.

They are made by Borrelli, and do have exceptional levels of handwork (especially compared to most current Borrelli production) - buttonholes, sleevehead, placket, collar is hand attached etc.

The collar is unlined, and they're quite small collars in keeping with the current trend.

Fabrics are 'interesting' - the photos on Yoox don't do them justice / allow an accurate impression of their nature but they are pretty diverse in their nature and feel.

I got three VdR shirts from a local shop, shortly after starting this thread, and I've been very pleased with them. They are the softer, unlined type - good for more casual fits, like what I was wearing here.

How did you find out they are made by Borrelli?

I don´t think are made by Borrelli, since Borrelli factory doesn´t exist anymore. Maybe by third parties who might have done as well for Borrelli on the best case.

 

Also the original factory of De Ruggiero, that is close to Attolini and I walk there to almost daily is bankrupted and he moved to other place to restart. I hope he has good luck.

Ok, it's an assumption but on the basis the sizing tags and overall construction and handwork are identical to my older Borrelli shirts. If indeed these are no longer available, someone else should clean up at Yoox, the prices are great so I brought 9 of them.

Looks like someone (or more than just one someone) took your advice, because there's almost nothing left in my size (15.5), except a bunch of red and coral shirts.
