The idea to make this shirt came from the stories of one of Petri's founding great-grandfathers about the New York of yesteryear that were passed down through his family. Thus was born the desire to recreate the true button-down oxford shirt of the past by restoring its original strength, simplicity and elegance to this iconic shirt. Hence the name Broadway: a reference to the eccentric and unique character of one of Manhattan's most famous streets.
POCKET, MOTHER-OF-PEARL BUTTON, REGULAR FIT, PETRI BUTTON COLLAR, 100% COTTON OXFORD FABRIC
Handmade shirt made in Turin, Italy.
- OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
- All fabrics used by PETRI are leftovers from the best Italian companies.
- Mother-of-pearl buttons.
The Oxford is made from pure cotton yarns, which give the appearance of a 'basket' weave. This is enhanced by the use of thinner, coloured warp yarns and a thick, soft, white weft yarn. This is how the knit takes on the typical polka dot look.
It was born in Scotland in the 19th century, more precisely in a Scottish factory that decided to name its four types of fabrics after the most prestigious university institutions of the time: Harvard, Cambridge, Yale and Oxford.
