    never odd or even
    Haven't found much recently about this shirtmaker (last thread was 2008):


    This video (posted before) depicts the handwork in their shirts, although I believe most of it is only done in the VIP line.

    Just received some - and here are a few impressions:

    Lines of shirting are VIP (classic dress shirts), Yellow (slim-fit, wilder patterns), & Green Stone (casual Italian). Handling the Green stone shirts in person, the style is very similar to Finamore. The familiar "Cucita a mano" appears; many reviews state that the shirts are hand-made from the collar to the gusset (although buttonholes and majority are machine-sewn). Quality is very good - at least equal if not better than shirts from other casual lines (Barba, Borrelli, Finamore, etc.). Fit is slim, with high armholes; fabrics are a nice blend, with many having the perfect rusticity for a casual shirt. Retail varies, but Green Stone shirts run ~ $250-$325 (up to $395 at Axel's).

    The styling is really quite nice - pictures below (first image borrowed):

    Anyone else with any recent experience with Mazzarelli shirts?

    I have one of the Green Stone shirts, its interesting as most of the handwork is on the interior/guts of the shirt and not plainly obvious as many similar shirts have.
    The fit is very slim and I love the collar.
    Super soft everywhere and lots of crazy cool details.

    Is this the same Mazzarelli as in Castellana Grotte near Bari?
