Subtil lines available in classic and slim fits

Made to your measurements, patterns of KALGATI shirts come in two fits covering all body types.

Take your measurements

Aware of how difficult ordering a new shirt online can be, we put ourselves in your place and have designed a simple, precise and pleasant form to use, with two types of measurements.

Body measurements

We recommend you to wear a shirt to ease the visualisation of marks and get help from a person. Using a tape measure, you just have to follow instructions and add your measurements to the form. We check the consistency of all your measurements and apply the ease to your shirt depending on the fit you select.

Shirt that fits you well measurements

Using a tape measure, please take the measurements of a shirt that fits you well. It is a simple way to tell us your exact measurements. Pictures and indications drafted with the help of our pattern-maker is available for each measure. We can then adapt your measurements to the lines of our classic or slim fits according to your preferences.

A chiseled assembly

Mirror French luxury excellence

In the intimacy of their atelier, for over 20 years seamstresses have been applying themselves to completing impeccable finishes, in the purest tradition of French excellence.

The offset of the sleeve seam, the incredible fineness of the single-needle stitching, the strength of the buttons sewn with a shank or elegant stitch density illustrate the extreme care and attention paid to a precision assembly.


Dress in the most luxurious cotton and the purest mother of pearl

Crafting the extraordinary

Having picked Sea Island cotton, the house dresses men in an exceptional way. This is the rarest strain of cotton in the world (0,0004% of worldwide production), which only grows in the perfect weather of the West Indies on th Barbados Island. Its fibers are the longest in the world (up to 52 mm).

Handpicked, the Sea Island seduces with a soft and delicate render, unique to the touch. The two-folded threads in Sea Island cotton are woven in Italy, in a factory with century-old know-how. Light, opaque and strong, the fabric is a fine textured poplin similar to twill in a 120/2 yarn count. Hard to wear anything else, once you’ve tried it on…

The shirt bears mother of pearl buttons. Coming from the Australian and Indonesian seas, it is the queen of nacres.  The buttons, crafted with the utmost simplicity, are the perfect, delicate match for the king of cottons.
