PATTERN DRAFTING

  1. Managing Director
    Each pattern is individually drafted according to each client's posture and body shape.
  2. Managing Director
    The fabric is cut with attention to detail ensuring that any checks and stripes are aligned.

BASTED FITTING

  1. Managing Director
    Ease along the back of the yoke ensures a comfortable fit along the shoulder blades.
  2. Managing Director
    Darts are set during the fitting in order to ensure the right height depth.
  3. Managing Director
    The right amount of ease on the sleeve cap, along with the right height of the arm hole, ensures the shirt sits correctly on the shoulders.
  4. Managing Director
    Once both myself and the client are content with the muslin fit, we can then archive this muslin for future reference, and move on to the production of the client's shirts.
  5. Managing Director
    Each cuff is custom made to accommodate a client's watch.
  6. Managing Director
    During the drafting of the pattern I always make sure that shoulders are cut according to clients posture and body shape, raising and lowering shoulder seams when needed during the muslin fitting.
  7. Managing Director
    Basting stage focused on the torso before sleeves being set, ensures the right balance on each shoulder is achieved.
  8. Managing Director
    After the torso is fitted, sleeves are set one at a time to adapt the sleeve cap to the client's deltoid muscle on each arm.

HAND CRAFTED DETAILS 

  1. Managing Director
    Button holes are hand sewn to ensure the maximum flexibility and aesthetic result.
  2. Managing Director
    Button holes are stitched using the finest quality silk thread, ensuring the thread colour compliments the fabric choice at all times.
  3. Managing Director
    Each button hole is hand cut according to Italian tradition with a chisel instead of scissors to ensure precision.
  4. Managing Director
    Top stitching along flat fell seam, is done by hand with a fine blind catch stitch.
  5. Managing Director
    The best non-fusible interlining is selected among different weights to ensure best comfort and fit along the neck. An additional panel is left on the central back of the collar to ensure the tie does not move.
  6. Managing Director
    The blind catch stitch done by hand enhances movability and eliminates any possibility of the puckering typical of machine stitched shirts.
  7. Managing Director
    The collar settings are shaped according to the clients collar stiffeners.
  8. Managing Director
    An optional raised edge collar can be crafted on request to enhance the design.
