Cotton & Linen


Today who wants a bespoke shirt, entirely handmade and of top notch quality, hardly ever will find it in the renowned St. James neighbourhood in London. Luigi Borrelli is one of the few Neapolitan shirtmakers still sewing with needle-and-thread. In the workshops of Via Fossa Imperatore in Nocera Inferiore (SA), some of the finest shirts are made with standards able to satisfy even the most demanding gentleman. 

8 steps are needed to create a bespoke shirt, according to the Neapolitan sartorial tradition. The parts entirely handsewn are the following: the armhole, the collar, the yoke, the gusset, the sleeve gauntlet, the button hole, the button and the cannoncino.

Chi oggi cerca una camicia su misura, interamente fatta a mano e di alta qualità, difficilmente la troverà nel celebre quartiere St. James di Londra. Luigi Borrelli è uno dei pochi camiciai napoletani che cuciono ancora con l'ago e il filo. Nei laboratori di Via Fossa Imperatore a Nocera Inferiore (SA) vengono prodotte camicie in grado di soddisfare tutti gli standard di qualità richiesti da un gentleman contemporaneo. 

Ben otto passaggi sono richiesti per creare la perfetta camicia su misura, secondo la tradizione sartoriale partenopea. Le parti interamente realizzate a mano sono le seguenti: il giromanica, il collo, il quarto spalla, la mouche, il travetto, l'asola, il bottone e il cannoncino.

Tailored made shirts, and Bespoke shirts have the same meaning and are used by Professional Tailors.
