This In Turati mini striped sky-blue double twisted cotton shirt is
a true icon: its elements represent the maximum expression of soft, pleasant and carefree formal elegance.
A lustre and delicate feel to the touch make it ideal worn mostly with suit and tie 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 strength 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. Finally, the ironing and the folding are made by hand too.
The Australian mother-of-pearl buttons are applied by hand with the “lily stitching” technique.
