    I have no experience with Lorenzini shirts at all. Those of you who own Lorenzini shirts, can you tell me if this shirt is real or not? Or what should I aske seller that may indicate me it is real Lorenzini? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW Thanks.

    Looks real to me. I've never heard of fake Lorenzini shirts before...I wouldn't worry.
    The one issue I have with that auction is that it states "hand made." In my experience, Lorenzini shirts are completely machine made (and very well made at that).

    It's real.

    Lorenzini is very good, that price is excellent and no, I don't know the seller.

    Machine made, yes... but that is not a bad thing. It is how well made by machine and how quickly made by machine that determines the quality. I'd say Lorenzini is comparable to say... Brioni but with less name recognition.

    A step below the Barba's and Borrelli's.

    Despite what the seller claims, Lorenzini shirts are not handmade. However, the single needle stitching is very well done, they use good fabrics and it's a solid shirt. Lorenzini is one of the few Italian makers who feature a split yoke. The caveat is for those Lorenzini shirts made for the American market (and to a slightly lesser degree even those that aren't), Lorenzini shirts are extremely baggy, the most baggy I've ever encountered among the high end shirts. Carlo's equating them with Brioni shirts (made by Burini in Bergamo) is quite appropriate, as I'm not terribly fond of the collar work on either particular company. koji
