    I hope these women are paid well for it. I love Borelli shirts, but their fit are a bit big on the waist. Have you heard of the Morziello line, much better fit IMHO for slimmer (i.e. not fat) guys.

    Nearly all European producers supply the US with models they feel are more appropriate to our general girth. If you buy a Borrelli shirt from Bergdorf Goodman or Neiman Marcus you will get a much larger body than one you buy in Europe or from the Borrelli store.

    I recently bought a Borrelli shirt from Barneys NY in Beverly Hills. The fit was much slimmer. I stopped buying them because the were too generously cut around the middle. Neiman Marcus orders the larger cut in all there high priced shirts{Etro, Lorenzini, Borrelli, Brioni, Isaia etc..)

    Luigi Borrelli shirts are still hand made by “craftsman”, men, women with 10+ years of experienced sartorial sewing, cutting etc…

    I like these hand made shirts a lot so I added these to my collection of ties, cufflinks, pocketsquares and Kiton, Barba Napoli shirts on my web site http://www.tiedeals.com

    It's lovely to get this feel of life from the 2 shirts I own. They are simply perfect in how they fit me.

    However, this must be said. My shirts from TM Lewin (Windsor fits) and Hawes & Curtis (also Windsor full wide collars) evoke the same love in me as my Borrelli shirts. Difference being that the British shirts are a bit easier on the wallet.

    Love this blog btw.

    Buying a Borelli shirt also depends on the model. There are slimmer models made for the us market.

    Just purchased my first two Borrelli shirts. They are the only ones I own that don’t make my shoulders look rounded. I love them!
