The Riviera crew neck t-shirt is made in England and was originally designed for Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. This season we have updated it with a slightly wider neckband and our thicker, more robust cotton jersey for a more defined fit.
The fabric is made from a supremely luxurious, 100% long-staple cotton that is finished in Italy and knitted in England. Only the highest quality fibres are selected, before being combed to remove imperfections. They are then twisted together to create a strong, smooth thread that won’t tangle through being worn or washed. This twist makes it a supremely clean yarn, though we still pass it over a flame to remove any overhanging ends. It is then double spun to remove any remaining impurities.
It might be said that this is something of a laborious process, but we think that the resulting jersey, which is not only long lasting, but also the lightest and the softest that we have ever felt, is worth every effort.
