barneys sale is about to begin and i'm thinking of finally Â picking up some battistoni shirts which are usually well sale-priced..they seem to have a nice feel and especially nice collar to take a tie knot...any learned observation from members? how do they compare for instance to borrelli,ecc.?
I agree with Manton, in that the RTW shirts of Battistoni are not comparable to Borrelli in terms of handwork
. I would compare them with Corneliani shirts (I don't have any Lorenzini). However, bespoke Battistoni are in my view, much much better than Borrelli in the handwork department (and I'm not even comparing the fit which is a league away). Buttonholes are cleaner and tighter, cuff attachment, shoulder attachment, etc. Overall the handwork is superior.
