“Luigi Borrelli” has made the history of Neapolitan tailoring. A story of people, passion and promise. It was 1928 when Anna , with more than twenty years experience in the art of packaging tailored garments ( in her aunt’s laboratory), inaugurated a small workshop reserved for a restricted number of connoisseurs. Much more than a shop, a place where passion met with excellence. A place where a needle and thread entwined, weaving, gave birth to the intrigue of unique items, the heart of a story that would soon be handed down from mother to son, like any good Italian tradition. An inheritance received by the son, Luigi Borrelli, who with true passion, in 1957 founded the House of Luigi Borrelli. The beginning of a story destined to capture throughout the world, with the charm of the quality and tailoring. In 1987 Fabio Borrelli, Luigi’s son, established the winning business formula. The Luigi Borrelli product took this identity and become a little “object d’art” for the wardrobe of sophisticated connoisseurs. The shirts are manufactured with materials of the highest quality, hand finished by master embroiderers according to age-old tailoring techniques. The third generation has the credit of taking the company into the future, looking for small secrets from the past to move ahead. From 1997 the company started a process of growth geared to brand extension. Tailored garments, outerwear, jeans, knitwear and accessories complete the offerings of the Luigi Borrelli brand, and from this moment became a total look collection. Products are designed with the same quality that have always satisfied the Luigi Borrelli clients.

Having a clear idea of the startup is the guarantee of a good outcome: to offer a shirt characterized by a perfect fit was and is the basic philosophy of Borrelli shirts. To obtain a perfect fit, we retrace the ancient hand steps that made famous the great Neapolitan tailors. The eight passages then, represent the moment when the human hand replaces the machines, and allow a shirt to take a very special fit, in all its parts: The armholes, the collar, the shoulder, the mouche ,the embroidery at the sleeve vent, the button hole, the button with the old hen’s foot, the box pleat. The perfection of the shirt, like the other products made by Borrelli, is also recognized by the selection of materials. Fine cottons, with refined colourings and patterns typical of the Borrelli style, which are contemporary and classic at the same time, realizing that “paradox” that is the DNA of the House.
