Premium Italian Fabric Shirts14th February 2020
For nearly 20 years, Rodd & Gunn has partnered with the Albini fabric mill, one of Italy’s most respected textile producers. Over almost two decades we’ve woven our signature antipodean style together with their luxury shirt fabrics to bring super-soft, stylish men’s shirts to the southern hemisphere and beyond.
This year, we’re proud to announce the start of a new chapter in this fruitful creative partnership with the launch of our Italian Shirt Bar. Designed by us and crafted from premium Albini textiles, our new range takes the classic dress shirt into the 21st century. From fresh florals to modern micro geo prints, the Italian Shirt Bar has everything you need to upgrade your work and weekend wardrobes this season.
FROM FIELD TO FABRIC WITH THE MILL,
Founded in 1876, this humble mill in picturesque Bergamo, Italy, has been handed down through 5 generations of the Albini family. Over 140 years, the mill has earned a reputation as the birthplace of luxury Italian fabrics that are renowned around the world for their quality and versatility. The Albini fabric mill has become synonymous with high-end Italian shirting fabrics in natural fibres including cotton, wool, and linen.
Only the best raw materials become Albini fabrics, with the mill gathering top quality fibres from around the world. From long-staple cotton grown in Giza and super-soft cotton from California to wool from Australia and linen from the rolling hills of Normandy, the raw materials that make it to the Albini fabric mill are truly the best in the world.
From here, the mill uses a number of proprietary manufacturing techniques to manage the entire textile production process, from spinning and dyeing to weaving and finishing. The finished textiles then arrive in our workshops, where they’re transformed into top-quality men’s dress shirts.
