The Finamore Sergio Martin sport shirt in blue and white stripes has a relaxed, playful tone that fits nicely with its handsomely laidback construction. We ordered it from Finamore with our trademark cutaway collar. Though the collar is less emphasized in a sport shirt than a dress shirt, we still use a soft cutaway a lot as it lends a casual sort of elegance. Sport shirts are all about versatility—stylish enough for any occasion, yet easygoing enough for a pleasantly relaxed look. As with all Finamore sport shirts, it is made with 5 steps of hand-stitching.
Hand-stitching in the ‘movement areas’ of the shirt (the collar, sleeves, and yoke, and sleeve plackets) creates natural elasticity that moves with the wearer and, after just a few hours, literally shapes to the owners form, allowing a simple but spectacular feeling of comfort and fit that machine-stitching cannot replicate. To us, this is the best kind of luxury: that which is enjoyed by the wearer.
Hand sewn buttons and holes make buttoning the shirt easier. Also look for the buttons’ 3-pronged stitches, a mark unique to Neapolitan craftsmanship, and the hand picked linen linings of the collar and cuffs, which add comfort and softness while reducing shrinkage. The fit is trim, but not slim. Made in Italy.
