    Anyone on the board have experience with Prato Italian Shirts? http://www.patro.it/ At first glance, it looks to be an Italian equivalent to Jantzen - or at least my understanding of Janzten, I've yet to order from them. The prices at Patro are higher, and vary considerably based on the fabric, but it appears as if these prices include the IVA tax, which I'm assuming would be deducted for non-EU customers. Prato has a sample swatch book available for 12 Euro. If you drive through the site, you have to place a fabric in the shopping basket just to see the options for collars, cuffs, buttons, buttonholes, etc. Of course you don't have to complete the order. And it looks like they are offering 30% discount to new customers for the remainder of the year; it isn't clear if this for a single shirt or an entire order.

    Well, $230 is considerably higher than $44, and Jantzen's biggest selling point is how incredibly cheap the shirts are, so I would venture to argue that Patro is not really the Italian Jantzen.

    Patro uses only plastic buttons, charges extra based on fabric or cuff style, etc. Not really in the same 'value' bracket.
