In the 1950s, Luigi Borelli transformed his mother's small sewing workshop into The House of Luigi Borelli. Utilising the best traditions of Neapolitan tailoring learnt from his mother, Luigi established a stellar reputation for meticulous details in the cut and finish of his bespoke suits and jackets.
Towards the end of the 1980s and during the nineties, the third Borrelli generation took up the mantle, with Luigi's son, Fabio expanding the scope of the business to reach a global customer base with ready-to-wear lines.
Luigi Borelli's customers insist that a Borelli shirt is the best shirt that money can buy. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the shirts are still hand made by old seamstresses in small Italian villages. It is rumoured that every Luigi Borelli shirt is washed before sale to remove the marks and smells produced the dirt from the ladies fingers, pin pricks of blood, and the smell of cigarettes and Italian cooking! If this is true, then you are truly purchasing a piece of the true Italy, when you buy a Borelli shirt.
