Shirts in the finest Italian weaves at affordable prices. Fabrics in 100% cotton, double twisted yarn and linen.
Entirely handmade shirts, double needle stitched and customizable thanks to application of hand-embroidered initials. The shop also offers a large selection of ties, made from pure Italian silk lined with pure wool linings to guarantee elasticity and a compact look. The establishment also offers made-to-measure shirts for children. Even the shoes by Bracci are still based on handcrafted techniques, according to the old Goodyear procedure, whereby the shoes are hand soled to make them softer, sturdier and waterproof.

Made in Town presents a reflection on the ambiguity between original artwork and serial manufacture or reproduction.
