This RIVIERA DI CHIAIA Azure Stripes Double Twisted Cotton Shirt is completely Handmade in Italy.
Made of “Bacchettato Napoletano” fabric, this shirt is exclusively produced in Egyptian cotton’s poplin and features Australian mother-of-pearl buttons applied by hand with “lily stitching”.
This iconic garment by Santillo, usually used for informal meetings and now in Azure, is versatile enough to be worn in formal occasions too. It can be matched with a classic blue navy suit or a linen pair of trousers.
A peculiar detail 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.
Finally, the ironing and the folding are made by hand too.
