Good election of cloths for the upcoming spring/summer.

 

I am curious about how these shirts from Luca compare to those from Lombardi.

 

By the way, which are the most traditional buttons used by neapolitan shirt makers? I've seen more often the small thick buttons of the shirts you posted brax, but Kiton uses the flat ones, which I honestly prefer given that they button up better in my opinion. It is possible to request these kind of buttons at Lomabrdi/Avitabile?

 

Best,

These are bespoke shirts and as such you can choose types of buttons amongst other things.

On a Neapolitan hidden placket shirts from another shirtmaker I once requested and got Charvet type of buttons.

On my shirts from Lombardi I have selected a button which is slightly wider and thinner than the usual thick Neapolitan ones. The key is that the buttonholes are proportionate to the buttons selected.

Finally worth nothing that the reason most Neapolitan shirtmaker default to thick MOP buttons is that traditionally these were rarer, more resistant and therefore more expensive. There used to be many buttons shop in Naples until the late 1990's, a very famous one on via Chiaia were my grandma and mum used to buy buttons to supply to home based shirtmakers.

You can´t imagine the models of buttons available for shirtmaking, even weird as squared, octogonal, smoked in different shades, all coming from the North of Italy most of the time and sure a shirtmaker has in stock,  but usually is used the 16 paired with 14 in 4 mm most of the time, the one you can see in almost all the Neapolitan brands. The “thick” one. 

 

There is a 5 mm one whose cost is triple than it, I got a few myself, but never seen any on a production shirt, a reseller was selling those online for 3,99 each!!!

 

For jackets is were you can´t imagine how many different buttons do exist! I always find new ones never seen before.

Kiton shirt just arrived for a wedding this Saturday in a beautiful castle near Lyon, France. White cotton. Could you please tell me how this weave is called? Panama? Woven cotton?

Thank you. What is the difference between the two?

Royal oxford usually has more lustre, but I believe the weave is the same. Seemingly used interchangeably, but happy to be corrected by someone more knowledgeable.

it is an oxford type weave.
everybody has there own name for this.
and there are many different ways to make this fabric.
enjoy the shirt

Royal oxford has smaller microweavings and usually comes in 170/2 and 200/2, the most soft and luxurious.

 

Oxford is a harsh low accounting weave as the usual check carpenter shirts.

 

Panama is an open wave kind more or less mix of the both above.

A couple of new OCDBs from Hamilton Shirts.

Camicceria Piccolo (the famous cloth merchant). The shirt arrived today, as promised, 3 weeks from the order. I ordered thorough their website in an standard size, but you can provide your own measurements at the same cost (200€), something I'll do in the future based on this shirt. Cloth is Canclini cotton/linen. Very good finishing (8 hand steps) and very thick MOP buttons. In conclusion, for those who can't reach Naples easily and know their measurements this is a very good option for getting a MTM (not bespoke) shirt at a good price. I totally recommend.
