Caring for shirts made by small artisanal Italian shirt makers

Bugelli logoMany of my clients like Italian shirts produced by the likes of Battistoni, Borrelli, Brioni, Canali, Corneliani, Fray, Isaia, Kiton, Lorenziri, Ricci and Zegna.

But a much smaller group of clients favor shirts handcrafted by small artisanal shirt makers such as Abbarchi, Attolini, Bugelli, Finolla, Liverano, Maffeis, Matuozzo, Siniscalchi, Siviglia and Ypsilon.

Apart from the stunning craftsmanship associated with the measurement, pattern making, styling and construction, they rave about the fabric - the finest Italian and Swiss cottons, woven from the finest Egyptian cotton by slow, antique looms, from small mills such as Alumo, Bonfanti and Riva .

For those who appreciate the stunning craftsmanship of these small artisinal Italian shirt makers, dropping off your Attolinis or Matuozzos at your local neighborhood dry cleaner and shirt laundry is sheer heresy. After all, they wouldn't know an Attolini from an Abercrombie or a Matuozzo from a Members Only.

One such client lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland and he's a Leonardo Bugelli afficionado.

Some of the Bugelli shirts we laundered for him are pictured above. Below is a photo of my client in Bugelli's studio in Florence being fitted with a muslin "try on," after measurements were first taken but before the first shirt was ever made.
