It's RTW by Vincenzo di Ruggiero, a Neapolitan maker.

Had to create some space on my hanging closet so I folded some shirts today:

Haroutunian MTM, made with their trace of a T&A collar, picked up on Friday

cloth is Acorn Grasmere 'plain sky'

fit is good, although it hasn't been washed yet

first impression is that make is better than Haroutunian RTW, but I will compare in more detail

I have one MTM shirt from years ago and while the construction is certainly nice, it's not as if you can't find that quality on bespoke at a fraction of the price.

Here is Simon Cromptons interview with Mr. Colban. It seems they source fabric to their own specifications.

I found his discussion of the different shades of white interesting. I didn't look at the selection of white the last time I was there but I am curious to look again. I also like the absence of finishing on the cloth. I prefer to have cloth that becomes softer with wear rather than is softened by finishing.

That's certainly interesting (even if, cynically perhaps, I think the whole things smacks a bit of... salesmanship).

The bit about adding silicon was interesting
Quote:
Then you get onto finishing, which is very important with cotton fabrics. As I’m sure you know, there is a tendency to use finer and finer yarn and weave it faster and faster, which produces a fabric which is extremely harsh. The solution, then, is to soften it – often with silicone. As the silicone-haters that we are, we developed our own natural finishing for it.

I would have assumed, perhaps naively, that silicon would make it feel smoother and - if anything - a little stiffer. But I guess not.

At any rate, they certainly seem like they have some unique fabrics and that the wall of white (or is it a whole room) isn't just marketing.
