Fabrics

The creation of a tailored shirt starts from the choice of fabric. Each event needs different patterns  or fibers, and we want to make your every event special and unique, comfortable and elegant, in a word: perfect.
The Cotton Fabric is the most ancient fabric, such as Linen and Wool. The quality of the fabric is made by the length of the fiber. Longer the fiber is, more shining and finer the fiber is. The cotton fiber is not electrostatics, it does not felt, it does not irritate skin and it is comfortable and fresh to wear.

POPELINE - FITTED SHIRTS FABRIC

POPELINE

Features

This name refers to a fabric derived from “papalina” with reference to the Papal City of Avignon from where it originated. The number of weft picks is only half the number of warp ends. This particularity permits the coloured stripes to be clear and bright , in comparison with the much softer weft checks. In fact it primarily became important since the 1960’s owing to the greater loom speeds that could be achieved on account of the lesser number of weft yarns, in comparison with the gingham or zephyrs of the past.
