With your extensive selection of patterns and styles, are you finding that some styles and types of patterns are more popular in some parts of the world and others more popular in other parts of the world? If so, what does the world map look like in terms of shirt styles and patterns?

Naturally, countries with warmer climates tend to gravitate towards light weight fabrics, in particular cottons with a higher yarn count, linens and zephyr.

Whereas customers from countries with a colder climate will look to have fabrics like twill, oxford and poplin that perform better in cooler environments.

In terms of colour, style and pattern, this always changes and is dependent on the individual, the need for the product and the amount of wear one can get out of the shirt and when and where he may wear it to.

There is no definitive answer, but we are happy that our customers are creative with their shirts, especially when they are confident in the fit of their Apposta shirts.

Collars are the most distinctive attribute of a made-to-measure shirt. They can be the most noticeable feature, highlighting the style of the shirt. Worn in a formal setting, with a tie or dressed down, with a sharp open collar. The collar sets the tone of a shirt.

We offer 29 Collar styles to suit a wide range of tastes and occasions. Options include;
Straight Point Collars | Spread Collars | Button Down Collars | Band Collars | Winged Collars

The Pin Collar
Rarely found in ready to wear retailers, the classic design of the 1920's remains a dominant style and a wardrobe staple for stylish men alike.

The archetype soft collar became customary, but a struggle to keep a tie in place due to the delicate fabrics used.
Attaching the collar to a pin, the collar gave a better shape and neater look.

Still worn today in a variety of settings, and still adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

We offer a wide range of cuff styles for those formal occasions, and informal occasions.
What if you needed to be dressed for both?

The Convertible Cuff is born of the single button cuff, made with two button holes, which can be used to feed a cufflink through. For anyone who wants to wear the same shirt with cufflinks on formal occasions or with buttons at other times.

@GraceR , is Apposta able to adjust shoulder slope, such as strait shoulders? I understand if not, only one other shirting company can and only does casual shirts. Thank you in advance.

We are able to manipulate the shoulder angle to give you a more defined fitting shirt that's made to your specific measurements. You can detail any special requirements or modification on the comments section in you measurement profile.

Our customer support team is always on hand to provide assistance.

A follow-up question: what is the difference between soft, normal, and stiff collars? For example, is the soft unfused? Thanks.

Hi Adriel,
The soft collar is not completely unfused, but is similar because the interlining is very soft and thin, you might opt for this option with a more casual shirt. The stiff is the sturdiest and thickest, we recommend it only for those who wear a tie. The standard is in the middle, which is also the most versatile.

What does this mean? Is it because the 14cm drop between the chest and the natural waist?

The pop up message appears when in the profile there are one or more measurements that significantly differ from the standard size. Our production team double check your measurements before producing the shirt and we will contact you via email if the measurements don't quite add up.

Ha, was on chat with Alessia when you replied, as thought you were busy and should contact customer service as suggested, and then post the reply here. By the way, she more than answered the questions.

I can add that collars can be changed if not suitable at no extra cost. This surprised me as never heard of such and to me suggests a strong desire to create to the customer's satisfaction (versus the customer didn't choose right).

By the way, am considering the Canclini shirting in cyan of Mock Leno. Have not come across cyan shirting and with the Mock Leno, see be a nice Summer season and especially Monsoon season shirt.

The Best Fabrics in the World. Fact.
Supima Cotton Vs David & John Anderson


Supima® cotton

Apposta offers shirts made with the Supima® cotton, also known as American Pima. Grown in California, because this premium plant requires a nice long growing season in a hot, arid environment. Rather than being rain-fed, Supima cotton plants need to be fully irrigated. It has a reputation for producing a smooth fabric that's soft to the touch, wrinkle-resistant, and ultra-durable.

Click here to choose Supima fabric on our website.

Features of Supima® cotton

  • A stronger fiber that is twice as strong as regular cotton because the longer fibers have a higher resistance to pulling, breaking and tearing.
  • It will get softer as time passes because the extra long staple fibers produce a smoother and cleaner yarn that resists pilling.
  • By absorbing the dye into the fine fiber with a deep penetration, it retains the colour better even after multiple washes.




David & John Anderson

D&J Anderson offers a large range of the most precious shirt fabrics in the world. Its Sea Island Cotton: the élite Caribbean cotton has the exclusivity of production in Barbados, West Indies. The region’s perfect climate for cotton production; average rainfall and humidity contribute to the superior standard it presents. The light material is both incredibly strong and bright and is not affected by multiple washing. Shirts made with Sea Island cotton remain a good investment into the future since the fabric becomes softer over time. The silky feel and extraordinary brightness satisfies shirt wearers all over the world.

Click here to select David & John Anderson fabrics.


David & John Anderson Traits

  • David & John Anderson created Golden Jubilee (link) – a fabric with the finest yarn in the world. Made from Giza 45 cotton and its 330/4 yarn count measurement, it is twisted four times instead of the standard two. This significantly outnumbers a Sea Island cotton shirt, that averages around 140/2. Totally revolutionary in its softness and durability, Golden Jubilee symbolises the prestige and reputation for which David & John Anderson are renowned.
  • As a subsidiary of Albini Group, David and John Anderson has been cultivating and distributing its own supply from Barbados since 1822. Together, with the expression of the maximum technology supplies, create the finest fabrics available, including the fabrics made with the world’s finest yarn; Cullinan (link), 300/2, and Millennium Star (link), yarn of 330/3's.




With Apposta you can create or customize your shirt using luxurious fabrics from Supima® cotton, David & John Anderson and more.​

Cotton From Nile

cotton.jpg


Egyptian cotton, the king of the cotton world. Donned for special occasions, it’s the fabric of choice for when a touch of luxury is required.

A go-to for dress shirts, the premium cloth is woven from extra-long fibres hand-harvested from a small area east of the Nile. This specialist yielding makes it’s resistant to pilling meaning it becomes softer over time and whiter with each wash.

At Apposta we stock over 400 Egyptian cotton styles, including Giza 45 and Giza 87.​
