I recently read in a magazine about an Italian shirt store that had opened in NYC. It got rave reviews and I recall the price was 99 bucks for three shirts which was cheaper than the 149 euros the store charged in Italy itself. Can't find the magazine and never jotted down the name. Anyone know the store? Thanks k

There's a Costume National store on Mercer Street and they are full on Italian, bit on the pricey side of things though.

I dropped by the camicissima store when I was in Verona last year and was not at all impressed by the quality of these shirts.

Thanks guys. Camicissima was the store I had read about. I guess with that cheap price tag the quality is not going to be great.

I wouldn't recommend Camicissima either. The quality of their shirts is mediocre and their customer service stinks.

Thanks to the thread starter

And thanks for all the answers. I was there, and the shirts look awesomely nice. In fact at that price I plan on even starting my own business with them as my distributor. OK just joking with that last line but I think they have some really nice stuffs
