Ya but there's no way in my mind that the euro versions would have less hand-stitching than the american versions. What they are is trimmer because europeans don't have the american obesity problem. I just don't buy that Borrelli is doing some stuff with less hand-stitching than their usual stuff. Like I said, even a Borrelli polo I have has a hand-stitched collar, shoulder, buttonholes, buttons, and gussets.If they don't cut corners on a polo shirt, I can't imagine them doing so on any shirt. And I'll say it again but the buttons don't look like borrelli buttons to me (they're about .5mm too thin), although my collection of Borrelli pales in comparison to Andrew's and is mostly limited to sportsjackets, so i'll defer to his judgement on that issue.
