    Royal oxford usually has more lustre, but I believe the weave is the same. Seemingly used interchangeably, but happy to be corrected by someone more knowledgeable.

    Royal oxford has smaller microweavings and usually comes in 170/2 and 200/2, the most soft and luxurious.

    Oxford is a harsh low accounting weave as the usual check carpenter shirts.

    Panama is an open wave kind more or less mix of the both above.

    Camicceria Piccolo (the famous cloth merchant). The shirt arrived today, as promised, 3 weeks from the order. I ordered thorough their website in an standard size, but you can provide your own measurements at the same cost (200€), something I'll do in the future based on this shirt. Cloth is Canclini cotton/linen. Very good finishing (8 hand steps) and very thick MOP buttons. In conclusion, for those who can't reach Naples easily and know their measurements this is a very good option for getting a MTM (not bespoke) shirt at a good price. I totally recommend.

    Not too porny, but anyway here's what I received the other day: Three bespoke shirts and three bespoke polo shirts, both from a small shirtmaker in northern Italy :)
