The Best Italian Dress Shirt
The sartorial / bespoke brands, often less known as these small artisan workshops focus on high quality instead of spending time and money on marketing. Less known does not mean less quality, the contrary, many of the sartorial shirt makers are very well appreciated by the high-end international shopper. The hand stitched collar, armholes and several other finishes gives the shirt a better fit. There is often no way back to the "regular" shirt after experiencing this quality for men fashion.
The Best Italian Dress Shirt Brands
Well known in the high-end bespoke aficionado shopping circles:
The best Italian dress shirt brands would be mainly defined on high quality hand made shirt with excellent fit and amazing fabrics. The slightly draw back is that an excellent hand made dress shirt does not mean it will be stronger than a machine made shirt. So for a few of the people whom are very busy when wearing a dress shirt, this might result is buttons popping off or slight cuts in the fabric. These shirts are (often) pretty delicate. But when you take that in account, you going to enjoy a wonderful shirt for years to come. As the Kiton shirt runs often at the $900+ price point, finding a online outlet like www.tiedeals.com can come in handy to pick up genuine Kiton shirt at 60% - 75% off.
