Simone Abbarchi - Made to Measure
In 1987, a top Florentine craftsman gave Simone Abbarchi the chance to learn the fundamentals of the art of bespoke shirt tailoring, from design to fabric selection and attention to finishes. The store opened in 1997. The golden rules are individual tailoring with a focus on wearability and comfort, choosing collars and cuffs, and selecting from among 4,000 fabrics. The shirt is cut and ready for fitting within 24 hours with mother-of-pearl buttons whose width is chosen by the customer. Shirts can be monogrammed, always by hand.
