Over the past year, the Romualdo team and client's alike have fallen in love with an exceptional shirtmaker out of Sweden. This brand, Stenströms, has become a staple of the Romualdo wardrobe. Although a core piece of our trade will always be our custom shirtings, Stenströms carries with it the history and overall make of a high quality product that we are extremely happy to provide our consumers.
Below is an in-depth look provided by Stenströms on the process of crafting
Each Stenströms shirt consists of 23 components that are cut and assembled with exacting precision. The process involves 60 distinct operations that are checked at five critical inspection stations. Thanks to skilled designers, cutters and tailors, we have refined this technique and perfected our shirts over the course of a century.
A soft, comfortable collar. The collar and collar band under- go 25 separate operations to achieve a soft, comfortable fit. Pre-pressing and extra stitching prevent shape and finish from being altered by repeated laundering and ironing. At each stage of production, meticulous quality checks are performed, stitches measured and loose threads removed.
The sleeves are attached with single-needle stitching whereby each seam has at least six stitches per cm – elegant and with excellent durability.
All buttonholes are sewn with 66 stitches. 82 cm of thread is used for each buttonhole. Most buttons are hand-made from genuine, highest quality mother-of- pearl. For added strength, the buttons are sewn on in two distinct operations and have a wrapped neck.
Extra-fine stitching gives discreet seams and extra- long wear. Fine, double stitching produces optimum durability and elegant lap seams along the sides.
