Smart enough for official appointments. Yet as comfortable as a leisure shirt.
The Jersey Shirt by Ottavio Forlini, Italy: Sporty and casual over jeans,
smart with a jacket or suit.
Constricting woven fabrics just can’t compare: This shirt is made from a fine elastic cotton-jersey – which makes it extremely comfortable. Yet thanks to the mercerised cotton plus the ready-made collars and cuffs it still looks very elegant. It is too good to just wear it on your days off with jeans or chinos. It even looks polished for business worn with a suit or a sports jacket.
Mercerised cotton: Smooth to the touch with a silky sheen and long-lasting colour.
The fabric is both thicker and firmer than conventional cotton fabric so the fine jersey drapes smoothly and feels beautiful on your skin. Only proven experts such as Ottavio Forlini have been able to manage the careful assembly of jersey fabric. The authentic tailored details include a genuine outfitter’s collar (instead of a floppy polo collar) so you can actually wear it with a tie. Regular fit. Length in size 16": 80.5cm (31 3/4"), sleeve length: 68cm (26 3/4"). 100% cotton. Machine wash at 30°C. Made in Italy. Exclusively available via internet and by mail order from the Fashion Classics catalogue.
