The shirt polo was invented in India in the state of Manipur where, at the time, soldiers of the British army were stationed. As they visited this country in the 1850s, British soldiers saw Indian polo players wearing a very specific clothing for this game: a shirt made of cotton to long sleeves with buttons on the collar tips and especially, a short throat. So I revisited it a little bit....
This is the most popular collar. Temporal and elegant, the Italian collar is characterized by its flared opening. This collar is ideal for daily use. Polyvalent, it can be worn with or without tie and can be adapted to any type of face.
This shirt has simple simple cuffs to bevelled panels. Elegant and minimalist, it has only one button. We have paid particular attention to the circumference of the wrist so that it is not not too wide but keep the necessary comfort.
The cut is adjusted but it will not stick to your body. I made it so that you can wear it the outside of the pants. It is therefore long enough so that you can take it out when you are in movement or assis. On this shirt, I didn't sew any reinforcing swallows but lateral slits lateral slits.
On each of our shirts, I sewed 7 buttons.
The first button of the throat is sewn to 6.5 cm from the second button, allowing the neck to fall perfectly.
The last button has been sewn horizontally to prevent a small fold from forming above the belt.
Sewn in Zampa di Gallina (sewing goose feet), the buttons are mounted on a "foot" making the buttoning of the shirt easier.
Originally, all flannel was woven in wool, but in recent years we have seen the appearance of cotton flannel.
Usually, the wool flannel is built on a plain weave base with carded threads (uncombed, raw) to give it a fluffy appearance, to the heavy tombé.
Conversely, the cotton flannel is generally a serge. The yarns are combed and sometimes scratched to amplify the softness of the fabric.
Here, that's the case.
In making this shirt, I twisted two cotton threads together to form only one.
Thus, this cotton flannel which is double twisted is particularly resistant.
Since its creation in Paris more than 21 years, I have been working every day on the design of parts luxurious by searching for the most beautiful materials and by sublimating with a proachable perfection. I remain very attached to a European fabrication of high quality, a guarantee of its success. All our products are made in a traditional way, in a workshop with a human size, formerly a partner of the biggest houses, by passionate workers and in a quest for perfection. Each seamstress perpetuates a mastery of technique and of the rigueur characteristic of the French way.
Each product is made in limited series, which allows you to enjoy yourself by being sure not to see your item worn by someone else. I want to inject a touch of freshness and originality into each of my products through subtle and delicate details. Each item is designed with the aim of bringing you this small plus that makes the difference and gives our products this incomparable charm.
Finally, if you wish do a touch-up on your shirt (length of sleeves and/or shirt, bending, move the collar button), I suggest you to do it at the workshop before sending or removing your part in store, at your request. All our parts are carefully packaged by hand, presenting each item in individual recyclable boxes with silk leaves.
