We make our shirts at a workshop near Naples, in a small town in Salerno province. Antonio and his two sons run the business, which has made shirts for twenty-eight years. It’s a deeply skilled craft - some of the techniques used in our shirts take years to learn.
The workshop was one of the many we visited when we were looking for the perfect partner. We were instantly struck by the warmth of the place. It has a cosy, artisanal atmosphere absent from many larger manufacturers. The workers visibly enjoy what they do - it feels like they’re a big family.
After our first visit, Antonio suggested a local pizzeria for an authentic Neapolitan. At the end of a wonderful meal, we asked for the bill, only to be told it had already been settled. Antonio had called ahead.
