    Battistoni makes my favorite RTW shirt. I just love the collar, it's very thick and substantial, yet not stiff. Quality is excellent: nice buttons, nice stitching, etc. Fit could be a little better, eg more taper or higher armholes, but that might be because my shirts are made for the American market.

    Bespoke Battistoni in Rome is among the best in the world.

    C21 put out a bunch more ties this week, including some lighter/Hermes-like silks (as opposed to heavier, testured). They're $32 - $35.

    I love Battistoni. Here in NY, i've only seen them at Barneys. If you're a fan of The Talented Mr. Ripley, that's where Dickie and Tom Ripley go when they go clothes shopping in Rome in the movie.

    My favorite aspect of Battistoni shirts are the rounded edges on the collar.

    I love their ties. They're well made, and a steal at that price. Plus most people don't know the brand, so they stick around.

    I have two Battistoni shirts purchased years ago Bonwit
    Teller's mens shop in Chicago. They're still in style and
    have worn well. I bought a Battistoni Sportcoat
    with a Barney's label at Jeremy's designer outlet
    in San Francisco. It is outstanding and draws
    compliments when I shop at better menwear
    stores. The very elegant Battistoni shop is a must
    visit when in Rome even if one's budget doesn't
    permit buying anything.
