    I have a couple of Truzzi shirts that I picked up new for $20 at Daffy's. In my opinion, they are okay shirts but in no way comparable to Borrelli. They appear (to my eye) to be entirely machine sewn, as opposed to the handwork obvious on my shirts from Borrelli, Attolini, and Oxxford. The fabrics are pretty nice, and I like the cut of the spread collar, but the finishing of the shirts included things like loose threads on the buttons that I wouldn't want to find in a $325 shirt. I don't know that I would even be inclined to pay the ebay prices that are currently offered -- probably not, given the deals I can often find on shirts on my own.

    You might want to keep your eyes open for the Oxxford shirts that are floating around. I bought a couple at Off Fifth, where they are around $80 - $90; they include a lot of hand work. I think they may be made by Finamore, but I'm not certain (they are marked made in Italy). I don't know if there are any in the color you want, but it can't hurt to check.

    They aren't Borrelli or Barba but they are still very nice shirts - perhaps a bit nicer than Lorenzini.
