    I am considering purchasing a Borrelli dress shirt off of Ebay. It is new in wrapper and from a reputable dealer. My only question is how well do they fit? I am naturally thin, so I have issues with baggy shirts. Thanks. - Craig

    I, too. They blouse a good deal. I have darts put in mine and they feel alright that way. But still they don't fit as snug as, say, Prada or Zegna.

    Depends on whether it was made for a department store (in which case it will be rather baggy), or if it's from their boutique (in which case it will quite be slim).

    Measure a nice-fitting dress shirt you have, then compare the measurements to the auctions on eBay. Borrelli shirts are too expensive to go for a hit or miss kind of thing.

    A nice adress for Borelli shirts is www.yoox.com It is all brand new stuff and their most expensive Borrelli is only 132 euro's.

    I've found Borrelli shirts fit quite large (not slim fitting), which is the way I like them. Check out Barba (also can be found on EBay) if you want slim fitting super-high end shirts.
