Product Review: Neronote, Canclini Poplin Made To Measure Shirt

I had been talking to a marketing representative from Neronote around the holiday season, and she offered to send me a made to measure shirt to review. Before doing some research, I had never heard of Neronote. If you have explored the world of online MTM shirting, you know that there are numerous options all claiming to produce a superior product in terms of price and quality. You never really know how your shirt will turn out until you receive it. Honestly, it’s a bit of a risk.

That being said, Neronote looked like they made beautiful shirts. The styles looked on point, and they are made in Italy. Neronote offers about 2,000 fabrics, a variety of high quality fabrics from mills like Thomas Mason, Monti, Albini, and Canclini. I’ve been wanting a brown striped shirt, so I went with a brown striped cotton poplin from Canclini. The design process was straight forward and easy to understand, as online MTM should be. Fast forward four weeks and a package from Neronote arrives on my doorstep. Inside was, quite honestly, one of the most beautiful shirts that I own, and the best online MTM shirt in my closet.

There were an impressive amount of collars from which to choose, including a few variations on the spread (my personal go to). I went with the Neronote standard spread collar, and was very much pleased with it. It sits nicely under the lapels of a buttoned blazer, and is not so drastically spread as to be confused with a cut-away collar. It compliments a four-in-hand knot very nicely, and looks great unbuttoned too. 

The softness of the fabric makes this collar very comfortable, but Neronote also allows for the choice of “soft”, “normal”, and “stiff” collar options, all with the choice of removable collar stays. I never wear collar stays, so I chose the soft option with removable stays. Another nice addition is the ability to choose the placement of the stitching from the edge of the collar. 

More after the jump.

Hotel Santa Caterina - Amalfi, Italy:

I can say, without doubt, that this is the most beautiful place in which I have ever had the fortune of staying. If you make it to Amalfi, make it here.

This makes every ounce of Italian blood in me long for the smell of a pot of homemade bolognese sauce.

This is one of my favorite shots The Sartorialist has ever taken. There isn’t one piece of clothing in it, but that sign is fucking deadly. This is beautiful.
