Camiceria Santillo was founded in 1970 as the result of a strong passion for handmade shirt which has been handed down from generation to generation. Nowadays the company's aim is to preserve the ancient tailoring tradition and properly for this reason Santillo 1970 is still a family-run business: in addition to the founder and tailor Angela, her daughter (Annaluce), two sons (Saverio and Gennaro), two embroiderers and three cutters and pattern makers cooperate to create Santillo "Masterpiece" Shirts. The value of their hard+ and precious work has been recently highlighted by the prestigious "Monsieur" magazine.
Santillo 1970 produces bespoke as well as ready-to-wear products which are completely hand-made and stand out for their fit high-end fabric and the High Italian Craftmanship.
At Finaest.com you can find an exclusive collection which takes inspiration from Santillo S/S 1986 Catalogue. These models, collars and fabrics have been accurately reproduced only changing the spinning count, that once was “single spun” and today is “two ply”, in order to highlight the quality and brightness of linen and poplin fabrics' colours.
The hand-cut and hand-restitched shirts are characterized by 4mm asymmetric sterling Australian mother-of-pearl buttons and the variety of buttons' shape itself brings out the hand-made sewing of every single button).
Once the sides have been sewn, the restitching of the armhole is realized with a famous method known as Santillo's “punto a barchetta”, in order to enhance the fabric's softness and strenght in the most stressed point of the shirt.
