This weeks shirt was chosen for its, um, uniquely themed pattern. Used as a cuff detail, the Kama Sutra livelies up this custom made dress shirt.
Can you spot the print?
How about now?
Sewn in the pick stitch style, the blue thread is used throughout the shirt with blue button holes to match.
Matching blue monogrammed initials
One last time…
Remember when we showed you the rolls of fabric that arrived from Italy last week?
Here are a few of our most interesting and favourite fabrics of the collection.
Some of you may or may not know that Antonio Valente proudly provides NBC’s hit show Hannibal with the stylish and dapper dress shirts and suits of its stars Mads Mikkelsen and Laurence Fishburne.
The character Hannibal is known for his sharp fashion sense, consistently dressed in bespoke three piece suits of various patterns and rich colours.
With the kickoff of season two premiering over the weekend, stay tuned for more strong and distinct costuming in each episode of Hannibal.
This weeks custom-made shirt was made for one of Antonio Valente’s own, working together with the team in creating a shirt for himself to his exact wants and specifications. A cross over between a dress shirt and a sport shirt, this piece can be worn to the office only later to be unbuttoned for a more casual look.
Notice the precise top stitch used along the collar and cuffs, with the thread colour chosen to match the colours of the shirt.
Keeping with the same blues and reds, a secondary patterned fabric is used on the inside front placket.
Most fashion consumers want to feel like they are wearing a one of a kind garment. This is achieved throughout this shirt with the use of monogrammed initials nicely embroidered on the inside of the collar as well as the right cuff.
