Finamore, established in 1925, is the second-oldest shirtmaker in Naples, but this fourth-generation family-owned company keeps its ditributions very exclusive. While other Italian shirt brands promise superfine fabrics and hand sewing on seams, armholes and buttonholes, Finamore offers all that plus a number of exclusive design details of its own, including a hand-stitched and pleated shoulder insert that gives the shirt unsurpassed freedom of movement. It also offers one of the largest selections of collar and cuff designs, updated seasonally and available to made-to-measure clients. This year Finamore, which recently moved its production into a smaller factory near the heart of Naples so it could concentrate on its made-to-measure product, introduced a new line of dress shirts constructed from superfine cotton woven on silk looms, in addition to a trimmer, sportier Black Lapel collection aimed at the more fashion-forward shirt buyer.
Finamore is one of the few shirtmakers skilled at attaching a one-piece collar, a casual style that requires no stiff inside band between the shirt and the collar to affix it in place.
