Profile

This small storefront is filled to the brim with men’s dress shirts priced to reward those who buy in bulk: one for $50 or four for $100. The shop opened in November 2009, the first stateside location for the popular Italian chain. Shirts here are fitted in the European style, sorted by neck size and only available in a fixed sleeve length. (If a customer is unsure of his neck size, a clerk will quickly take the measurement.) Wall-spanning shelves are piled with shirts in functional shades of blue, white, pink, and black, each fixed with a small placard indicating the neck size number (U.S. inches on the top, European centimeters below), and a selection of ties in various shades makes for easy pairing. The shirts are made of 100% cotton and seasonal collections bring new hues and prints. The same bulk-pricing scale is offered in Euros in the chain’s Italian stores, and many of the shoppers are Italian tourists taking advantage of the favorable exchange rate.
