This is the sort of stuff that leads to financial ruin. Â How can I get the remaining shirts in my size? I just got my first Carlo Franco blue nailhead shirt. Â Fabric is superb, and the collar is extraordinary.
Â I have not seen a better collar in a long time. Â The shape has a "presence" and elegance that is rare. Â The way I can describe it best is to say that it is balanced.
Â It is not the spread of the fashionista, it does not have multiple buttons at the collar, it does not scream "Look at me, I got one of them shirts that are trendy this week" look at all. Â What it says is "quiet elegance and power". In the manner of the best clothing, it doesn't look great but fantastic, Â without being obvious why it is even looking good. Â Once again, I am reminded of the value of passion in ones work. Â I admire the courage needed for such an undertaking. This project is clearly a labour of love and I wish them the best. -
Those of you who have bought these fine shirts, can you offer me some advice on collar sizes? My neck size is 16.5 and, for most shirt brands, I usually buy a size 17, to account for shrinkage. For most shirts (e.g., Brioni, Charvet, Lorenzini, Zegna, etc.), this seems to work well for me. The one exception is Borrelli: their 16.5 RTW shirt is very close to a 17, so I buy 16.5 . From what I've gathered, the Carlo Franco shirts are similar to Borrelli in this regard, correct? Many thanks.
