Clean, Sharp and Pressed Look All Day

Starching is never necessary due to the unique construction of Sabatini's collars and cuffs. He uses triple fusing so that your collar will have that clean, sharp, pressed look all day long. Even after years of cleaning and wearing, Sabatini's tailor made clothing maintain their shape. John Rockefeller, who knew the value of a dollar, regularly had his custom-made shirts reconditioned (changed the collars and cuffs) every five years, thus extending their lives to 15-20 years. Sabatini offers this same service so that you can save money. Your fabric is also pre-shrunk so you don't have to worry about your perfect-fitted shirt shrinking after a couple of washings.

As for style, Sabatini's clients mostly prefer the medium dress collar to enhance their executive image. Save the button-down for the weekend along with your sports jacket or sweater. The Medium Dress style collar has 3" long points with a 4" spread between points. For most men, Sabatini makes the collar a little higher in back to give a more luxurious look. French cuffs is an elegant and most popular look.

Shirts


Shirts

Dress shirts can make or break a fine suit. Fine quality shirts are made of 100 percent cotton. Shirt collars must balance the shape of the face. A long narrow-spread collar will accentuate a thin, elongated face. A rounded collar will accentuate a rounded face. Counterbalance with a medium to long point-spread collar. The correct height for a properly fitted shirt collar is about one-half inch above the jacket collar. The cuff of a shirt should always be seen when wearing a jacket, with approximately one-quarter to one-half inch showing.

Heavy-Set Men

Accentuate vertical lines. Choose chalk stripes and herringbones over plaids and solids. Clothes should be cut generously. Shirt collars should not be round. Select collars with points that lead away from the face at a slight angle, but never a spread collar.

Tall Men

Horizontal lines should be accentuated to stress breadth. Fabrics should be unfinished worsteds, tweeds and other bulky materials. Jacket should be worn on the long side with a loose waist and extra width in the shoulders. Trousers should always be cuffed.

Bid Farewell to Starching

To help you save money while extending the life of your designer shirt by 15 up to 20 years, do take advantage of a reconditioning service. This process entails changing the cuffs and collars to maintain that impeccably crisp look.
