A friend kicked out Borrelli from his brand portfolio after the brand collapsed.

By collapse, do you mean a loss of quality or the company itself is having financial/logistical issues?

The company does no longer exist as such, what you see now as Borrelli is what was split among investors (remember that the boss, Fabio Borrelli hast "lost" 50mln€), the shirts are not made in Naples (production was moved to a factory from Bari) and the tailored clothing operation has merged into a company with a different name, usually referred to as "the new Borrelli" in Naples, but that has nothing to do with the actual Borrelli company.
The entire structure has changed and it's a total mess IMHO , there are still sold9 or 12 passage shirts like from the old production in some Borrelli stores, without price difference towards the new production...

When were 2500 shirts made and how much does he want for them?

Nice collar!

Which NiAlma collar would be the most like the white shirt?
Model? Point length? Height?

Perhaps a cut away with 3" point length and 2" height? Or would any of the spread collars be closer?

Most People that used to work at the original San Sebastiano and then near Salerno factories now work at the factory in Nola (an industrial town near Naples) where they make the Donn'anna branded shirts and the Borrelli branded suits. They offer calibrated shirts at the factory, something in between MTM and full bespoke. Quality of construction at the Nola factory is still most probably like the old Borrelli you guys keep mentioning on this forum (Fabrics I have seen there included Thomas Mason and DJ Anderson), however for the price you can get full bespoke my smaller artisan in the city.

Been often to Nola, but were never really interested in anything Borrelli/"new" Borelli related, so thanks for the info (friends know the Borrellis and met some of them, that's where I had my overview from).
Donn Anna is real fun though, product's not worse (or even better) than the usual high end brand, but order processing is really...:awesome smarmy:
I only dont think that they offer DJA, Albini has very strict distribution contracts for DJA, at least in that part Italy (whether they have books or swatches or not has nothing to do with the actual avaialbility of the fabrics anyway, that was one reasons they got kicked out by so many retailers).

I saw this shirt in an anime series "Un-Go" and liked the look of it so much I had one made via the options presented through Modern Tailor. The pink is a little more dull than what the character wore but I think it turned out really well. My apologies for not having a still from the show to include. I'll try and put one up tonight. Further apologies for the dim lighting, my cubicle is poorly lit.

I also learned that Modern Tailor will do buttoned pocket flaps for an additional $5. I need some new "outdoors/fishing" shirts.

I have seen the actual roll of a pink micro gingham from DJ Anderson, not a swatch, a proper roll. Albini does a lot of branding variances in different markets. I have a pink piquet bought in UK from an Albini selection ( no mention of either TM or DJA) The same one I found in Naples in a Thomas Mason book

What I said, has nothing to do with constant and regular supply/availability, be it that they have books, swatches or some rolls smile.gif
Possibly the produce for other brands that have contracts with Albini for DJA or whatever, all possible^^
The Albini Agent is notorious for being quite a dickhead (never met him, was just told by many persons who amde business with him) , that is a big factor too...I still have to meet someone from Naples who actually differentiates between personal and business issues, haha.

But, as you say, they might tend to wear them more with odd jackets, tweed, and flannel than they might with a suit in a hard finished worsted.
From what I've seen, it's a very nice, subtle fabric. Wouldn't mind trying it someday, and also wouldn't mind trying one of the cheaper versions Carl says are just as good.

Probably the spread. I think mine's 1.5" high. Maybe 1.75. The points are almost 3.5. I think they're a bit long.
