I have two brand new Basile Blu dress shirts for sale. If you don't know Basile Blu, they are very nice and made in Italy by Mastai Ferretti. I was told by someone that Mastai Ferretti shirts was started by someone from Borrelli but I cannot confirm that. At any rate, Basile are not quite Borrelli quality but not the same price tag either.

They retail for around $200 and I have several that I get great use out of. I picked up a few shirts last week and simply have too many
so these are priced to sell quickly. Both are size 15.5 and sleeve length is approx 34". They have button cuffs and spread collar. $40 each including shipping or take both for $75. PM or email me for paypal details.

1. Navy blue with white checkered pattern in a very soft cotton twill. Very nice hand to this fabric. (no chest pocket on this one)

SOLD

2. Purple oxford cloth, has side gussets and chest pocket. I have one of these and it's great fabric; hard wearing and gets softer over time.

Those are nice shirts for a nice price! Are the collar stays removable? I had a Basile Blu shirt I loved, but for the fact that that the stays were sewn in.

I own a couple of Mastai Ferretti shirts I bought in Italy and must say they're fantastic. If only yours had longer sleeves, I would be all over them

Thanks for the words. The shirts are in my office so i will check for collar stays and exact sleeve length tomorrow and let you know. I did not measure the sleeves but approximated based on what my shirts measure.

Blue one is sold - thanks!

Purple is still available and I checked and that one does indeed have removable collar stays FYI. If someone wants me to measure exact sleeve length, let me know.

Did you get a chance to check the sleeve length?

Yeah, sorry about that gdl. Just measured again. Looks like it's longer than I thought (at least the purple one). I am getting 35"-35.5" from the center of the collar along the shoulder and top of the sleeve. I also measured from the armhole seam and it's 26 inches to the end of the cuff. I guess it's longer than my other Basile and Ferretti 15.5s. Hope this helps.

How long are they and how do you find RTW shirts in 15.5 with sleeves longer than 35"?

I don't buy many RTW anymore. If I do, I get a 16"/36", although I'd prefer a 15.5" neck
