The ESPRESSO CLUB shirt presents a micro chevron with a special construction made exclusively for Santillo: it’s crafted of the finest super-beaten cotton to enhance the texture and shine, while remaining thin and solid to the touch to always maintain a compact and clean shape.
Its renewed club collar created in a version with point length very pronounced and very rounded tips is combined with soft rounded cuffs.
Once the sides have been sewn, the restitching of the armhole is realized with Santillo’s famous “punto a barchetta”, in order to enhance the softness and strenght of the fabric in the most stressed point of the shirt.
A peculiar detail by Santillo is the sleeve stitching, that is not in line with the side seam because the sleeve is sewn only after the side has been closed. This step is unique and can be done only by the skilled hands of expert artisans. The Australian mother-of-pearl buttons are applied by hand with the “lily stitching” technique. Finally, the ironing and the folding are made by hand too.
