Handmade in Italy with high quality Poplin Cotton, it is very elegant and represents the piece that a true gentleman cannot avoid to have in his wardrobe.
Formal-Fit, semi spread collar with extractable sticks, double cuffs for cufflinks, this piece called Lord FitzRoy whit its lustre and delicate feel to the touch is ideal for suit outfits in any season.
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.
