Since its inception, Luca Faloni has aimed at bringing to life everlasting garments, using exclusive materials and working with the most prestigious Italian producers. Our linen line is one we’re particularly proud of because linen is the perfect material to enhance the timeless designs we create every day.

With its unique softness and breathability, linen is an environmentally friendly, luxurious material whose production dates back to 3000 BC. It's considered one of the most prestigious textiles because it's exceptionally durable and absorbent, making it ideal for warm weather.

Our linen shirts celebrate the uniqueness of Italian tradition by combining the craftsmanship of its masters with designs that will never get outdated. Here’s the story of one of our most renowned linen designs: the Portofino shirt.

Sometimes, a leather belt can enliven your style like nothing else: a garment that will enhance the quality of any outfit and that you'll love wearing for years to come.

Leather belts of the highest quality ensure durability and uniqueness for your everyday wardrobe. They hold their shape nicely and adapt easily, becoming more comfortable over time and providing a stylish look even after countless uses.

They’re also highly versatile garments that fit perfectly with both casual and formal attires. You won’t need a plethora of belts, as long as you own a few in neutral colours to put on that will work on any occasion.

Today we’ll look into what makes our handcrafted leather belts unique and why they’re the ultimate choice to enhance all kinds of styles.

Our Linen

The attention to sartorial details and passion for our craftsmanship only magnify the unique properties of this natural, durable, and breathable textile.

Subtly elegant and sophisticated, our linen textile comes to life in the laboratory of Albini, a legendary manufacturer working in the province of Bergamo. Founded in 1876 and now in its fifth generation, this family-owned business shares our vision of promulgating the philosophy of slow fashion typical of the Italian culture.

Together, we bring to life shirts that celebrate the sartorial history of this land, where linen garments have been made for hundreds of years. An ethical, sustainable approach to manufacturing allows us to enhance the know-how and experience of this territory and its craftsmen.


Creating the Portofino Shirt

Colouring

When colouring the yarn, it's crucial to monitor the uniformity of the colour and ensure the yarn absorbs it thoroughly; in this way, the garment will maintain its original colour for years.

The colouring process takes between 8 to 12 hours. It starts with removing the imperfections in the fibre, followed by the actual dyeing, which takes place in autoclaves filled with an alkaline dyeing formula.

The final step is oxidation, which is necessary to remove the dye that wasn’t absorbed by the fibre.

This step is carried out in the laboratory by highly qualified technicians, using state-of-the-art technology in line with European and international regulations.

Turin contains multitudes: a city that’s both industrial and artistic, ancient and modern, an amazing place of history and beauty where you can experience the authentic Italian lifestyle at its absolute best.

Torino is the northernmost major city in Italy, facing the majestic Alps and constantly caressed by its breeze. Yet, the city feels Mediterranean, with an atmosphere reminiscent of a southern flair that couldn't be more different from the hectic, metropolitan style of nearby Milan.

Nestled between the Po River and the Alps, Turin was a major national and European political centre for centuries. It was the first capital of unified Italy (the Kingdom of Italy), and the then-governing House of Savoy built majestic palaces and a modern infrastructure to celebrate the city’s importance.

Like most Italian cities, Turin went through a series of significant historical changes that determined its architecture and aura. It was one of the country's first and most industrialised cities between the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century; together with Milan, Turin and its industry laid the foundations for the post-war Italian miracolo industriale: it is, to this day, a crucial crossroad for industry, commerce, and trade.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next trip to Turin, here's what you can do in 24 hours in one of the most beautiful Italian cities.

Winding

Next comes winding the yarn onto a tube. The cylindrical bobbins are all the same length to ensure no flax yarn will be wasted in the process.

The yarn can easily slide on the loom, thanks to the shape of the cones. Each step of the process is carefully monitored by experienced workers using advanced machinery.

Warping

This is the step that precedes the weaving process. All the vertical threads are placed next to each other to bring the desired design to life.

The bobbins are positioned on creels. The fibres are warped on a large steel cylinder and gradually transferred to a smaller cylinder, which will be loaded on the frame.

Weaving

This is when the linen fabric truly comes to life. This process requires highly technological weaving looms in a controlled environment and is constantly monitored by experienced artisans.

Although weaving looms can produce plain fabrics with 640 strokes per minute, with linen and other delicate materials, it won't go faster than 300 strokes per minute.

Quality Control on the Fabric

Sophisticated quality control on the cloth is necessary to guarantee the high standards we aim for. Physical tests are carried out in our laboratories to assess the resistance to tearing and abrasion, and to alkaline sweat and washing detergents.

At this stage artisans can detect and remove any minor defects typical of this natural material. The know-how of the inspectors and the latest technology used for quality control are crucial elements that allow us to only use the highest quality linen.

The Making of the Shirt

Once our exceptional linen cloth is finalised, we use our artisans knowledge of traditional pattern cutting to expertly cut the cloth into key fundamental pieces to create our iconic design and perfected fit.

An integral part of this classic style is our distinguished one-piece "Paramontura" collar. Designed to create an elegant shape that lasts and has become the Luca Faloni signature for linen shirts. Other rare sartorial details like ‘giglio’ stitching and precious Australian mother of pearl buttons are final touches and a renowned staple in fine Italian shirting.

By combining a timeless design, artisanal tradition and one of the most astounding fabrics, our Portofino shirt embodies the Italian style at its finest: a garment that’s ideal in all situations and will add a classic touch to your outfits for years to come.



Elegant, slim-fit, wrinkle-resistant, and timeless: for decades, chino pants have been an integral part of a man’s wardrobe thanks to their unique versatility and durability. This year, Luca Faloni reinterpreted chinos by adding a modern touch to a classic design, enriched by the traditional approach and attention to details typical of the Italian craftsmanship our garments radiate. The result is our new cotton twill winter chino: Cortina.

Cortina features a medium thickness, cotton twill gabardine, ideal for the colder seasons and giving a unique silky, luxurious feel on your skin. We decided to name our latest chinos Cortina to celebrate the iconic history and lifestyle of Italy’s most charming alpine town, famous for it’s apres ski.

This article will look into the history of this fascinating fabric and how our Cortina chinos are made.

The gabardine fabric our Cortina chinos are made of is a tightly woven warp-faced twill weave fabric. A firm and durable material, gabardine was created in the late 1800s by Thomas Burberry, the founder of Burberry, who wanted to create a new, versatile blend for his creations.

At first, gabardine became popular because it can hold its shape and does not wrinkle easily. When it started being waterproofed with lanolin, it also became a must-have for travellers and explorers worldwide. Today gabardine is a versatile and exceptional fabric for suits and casualwear and is often used to make chinos or pants that can stand the test of time.

Our gabardine fabric is crafted in Northern Italy from high-quality cotton twill and blended with 3% elastane to improve the garment’s comfort and durability. They’ll seamlessly adapt to your shape, and thanks to the thoughtful details and luxurious feel on your skin, they may well become your go-to chinos in any smart-casual situation.

Cutting and Tailoring

Cloth cutting is made with machines to obtain the highest level of precision. After cutting the cloth, the Italian laboratories move on to tailoring, where the attention to details, fabric quality and traditional craftsmanship really come into play.
Cortina features internal double seams to ensure outstanding durability over time. The inner belt has embossed stitching, which will maintain the shirt tucked in more easily. The reinforcement in the bar tacks is visible on all pockets, giving further strength to a garment that's both elegant and highly sturdy.
The Cortina design keeps secure with a triple horn button closure and the inside button is hand stitched by artisans to ensure greater durability.

Our calf leather belts are the embodiment of timeless charm: built from full-grain vegetable tanned leather from Santa Croce. They will only get better with age and will last a lifetime, enriching your wardrobe and heightening the elegance of your formal outfits, but will also enhance your jeans and everyday style. The nubuck leather at the back of the belt adds a touch of understated luxury that won’t go unnoticed.

The calf leather offers the best durability and quality that will stand the test of time. Our reversible calf leather belts are essentially two belts in one, becoming the ideal choice for travellers also thanks to the luxury dust bag to store it.


Dyeing & Quality Check

The pants are then dyed using a 'Tinto Capo' process resulting in a natural harmonious colour throughout. Additionally, dying the garment at the end ensures that the trousers won't shrink after the first wash.

The final stage to bring the Cortina chinos to life involves ironing the pants, first using machinery and then by hands. As it's the tradition in the oldest Italian mills, each garment is meticulously checked by expert artisans in all its details, from size to stitching, ensuring the quality and durability of the Cortina pants are in line with the excellent quality our garments always display.

Turin contains multitudes: a city that’s both industrial and artistic, ancient and modern, an amazing place of history and beauty where you can experience the authentic Italian lifestyle at its absolute best.

Torino is the northernmost major city in Italy, facing the majestic Alps and constantly caressed by its breeze. Yet, the city feels Mediterranean, with an atmosphere reminiscent of a southern flair that couldn't be more different from the hectic, metropolitan style of nearby Milan.

Nestled between the Po River and the Alps, Turin was a major national and European political centre for centuries. It was the first capital of unified Italy (the Kingdom of Italy), and the then-governing House of Savoy built majestic palaces and a modern infrastructure to celebrate the city’s importance.

Like most Italian cities, Turin went through a series of significant historical changes that determined its architecture and aura. It was one of the country's first and most industrialised cities between the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century; together with Milan, Turin and its industry laid the foundations for the post-war Italian miracolo industriale: it is, to this day, a crucial crossroad for industry, commerce, and trade.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next trip to Turin, here's what you can do in 24 hours in one of the most beautiful Italian cities.

The colouring process takes between 8 to 12 hours. It starts with removing the imperfections in the fibre, followed by the actual dyeing, which takes place in autoclaves filled with an alkaline dyeing formula.

The final step is oxidation, which is necessary to remove the dye that wasn’t absorbed by the fibre.

Yarn Control

In our Italian laboratories, we have reimagined this timeless classic by adding a modern touch and subtle details to bring exquisite garments to life. Thanks to skills that have been passed down through generations, seasoned artisans provide a final touch to all our creations, adding invisible stitching to keep the design clean and ensuring the pants’ quality and size measurements. With Cortina, this traditional process results in a contemporary garment with a practical and versatile design that will fit most autumn to spring outfits.

After dyeing, we check each yarn to ensure the colour has been perfectly absorbed and will stand the test of time.

This step is carried out in the

laboratory by highly qualified technicians, using state-of-the-art technology in line with European and international regulations.

Winding

Next comes winding the yarn onto a tube. The cylindrical bobbins are all the same length to ensure no flax yarn will be wasted in the process.

The yarn can easily slide on the

loom, thanks to the shape of the cones. Each step of the process is carefully monitored by experienced workers using advanced machinery.

Warping

In our Italian laboratories, we have reimagined this timeless classic by adding a modern touch and subtle details to bring exquisite garments to life.

With Cortina, this traditional process results in a contemporary garment with a practical and versatile design that will fit most autumn to spring outfits.

This is the step that precedes the weaving process. All the vertical threads are placed next to each other to bring the desired design to life.

The bobbins are positioned on

creels. The fibres are warped on a large steel cylinder and gradually transferred to a smaller cylinder, which will be loaded on the frame.

Weaving

This is when the linen fabric truly comes to life. This process requires highly technological weaving looms in a controlled environment and is constantly monitored by experienced artisans.

Although weaving looms can produce plain fabrics with 640 strokes per minute, with linen and other delicate materials, it won't go faster than 300 strokes per minute.

Quality Control on the Fabric

Sophisticated quality control on the cloth is necessary to guarantee the high standards we aim for. Physical tests are carried out in our

laboratories to assess the resistance to tearing and abrasion, and to alkaline sweat and washing detergents.

At this stage artisans can detect and remove any minor defects typical of this natural material. The know-how of the inspectors and the latest technology used for quality control are crucial elements that allow us to only use the highest quality linen.

The Making of the Shirt

Once our exceptional linen cloth is finalised, we use our artisans knowledge of traditional pattern cutting to expertly cut the cloth into key fundamental pieces to create our iconic design and perfected fit.

An integral part of this classic style is our distinguished one-piece "Paramontura" collar. Designed to create an elegant shape that lasts and has become the Luca Faloni signature for linen shirts. Other rare sartorial details like ‘giglio’ stitching and precious Australian mother of pearl buttons are final touches and a renowned staple in fine Italian shirting.

By combining a timeless design, artisanal tradition and one of the most astounding fabrics, our Portofino shirt embodies the Italian style at its finest: a garment that’s ideal in all situations and will add a classic touch to your outfits for years to come.
