    thanks, made in Italy. I was lucky to get them to make for me, they make for their own brand and the prices are significantly higher. They also make my made in Italy ties. As you can imagine, I won't say who "they" are :)

    thanks



    A few people have asked for that size so I am getting them made.

    One more Castangia came in today. This one is a light twill.

    Soo Pretty. I wish I had a way to get one from here. Have you worn it yet? Looks like it has an incredible luster. I love the soft edges of Italian shirts.

    Yes I wore it the day after I received it, really happy with it.

    Simone visits NY and London a couple of times a year. If you find yourself in either place at the same time as him, you can get measured up. I got a good fit without a trial shirt.

    Glad you are happy with it, again it looks great! Unfortunately, I have as much business to do in either of those places as I do Florence. Looks like I need to take a vacation.

    Solely for use without a tie, yes?

    Not sure if the shirt's too dark for it, but I think I might've preferred white stitching throughout...

    Yes, unless perhaps in a wild casual mood with a navy linen tie. : )

    I know what you mean. I haven't specified the colour of the stitching (or thought about specifying it).

    That shirt is dark enough that I wouldn't be totally certain if white would work (on the button holes), but normally, not using white stitching on something lighter than navy is a pet peeve of mine :)

    Well, I understand that. I think white would have worked, since there's white in the fabric.

    Oh you have met Mary. I don't know her personally but have chatted with her for several years. Her blog was an inspiration for me prior to decide to come Naples to learn shirtmaking..She is very kind.

    Awesome shirts. And I agree with your assessment. There's no other RTW shirt that holds a candle to the Inglese handmade shirts. Some try, and they charge $800 a shirt...

    Thanks, GDL.

    I've got another four on the way and that will bring my total number of Inglese shirts to eight. I might have to stop there for a while...
