This Shirt is a real cult: it is Handmade in Italy with high-quality Twill Cotton, the result of a resistant and flexible Cotton realized exclusively for Santillo.
Formal-Fit, spread collar with extractable sticks, double cuffs for cufflinks, this item is perfect to wear with tuxedos and bow ties during a special occasion.
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.
