Meet our Creative Director Angelo
The soul of Diroma1980 revolves around my Italian roots and the love for my Land. When I was 26 years old I moved from Italy to the U.K. I left my secure job in my home town to jump into the unknown and set myself a new challenge which started with learning a completely new language. After 7 years climbing up the corporate ladder I could finally start working on my life time dream: sharing with the World what my parents started back in 1980.
Years of exceptional tradition evolve in the town of Francavilla Fontana, a place where the World’s leading luxury brands craft their shirts. we are proud of our heritage and we strive to ensure that our service reflects the high standards of our product.
The whole team and I would love to hear from you once you try our products and let us know your thoughts. There is nothing more valuable than good or bad feedback directly from our clients.

Hi, I am here to help you choose your perfect shirt from our collection. I will be taking you through our store and I will do my best to make your experience with us unforgettable. Let's start with the story behind Diroma1980 shall we?
The World of Diroma1980 is filled with stories of perpetual excellence.
With almost 40 years of tradition in shirt making to be shared with the World, our shirts are made in the old town of Francavilla Fontana in the South of Italy.
The experience of wearing a Diroma1980 shirt goes beyond the mere appreciation of supreme fabrics and comfort, it takes you on a journey that goes back to the days when a small local business in Puglia started making exceptional garments and kept its tradition until today.
With our unique vision, style and passion for our craft, we continually inspire the next generation of men who want to stand out from the crowd.

Now introducing a secret exclusive to Diroma1980,the Panciotto. This nifty little feature ensures the front of our shirts always stay crisp and smooth, with no gaping even when seated. So whether you’re in the boardroom or a restaurant,networking or relaxing with friends, the one thing you won’t have to worry about is your look
Twill Doppio Ritorto
Committing to nothing less than perfection is what our Twills Doppio Ritorto do.
Doppio Ritorto is a sophisticated Italian technique which ensures durability to the fabric, the garments are hard to crease and easy to iron.
The shirt presents a sublime and elegant satin feel and look due to the quality acquired after the Doppio Ritorto treatment.
We don’t leave anything to chance at Diroma1980. Despite the peculiar “non crease” characteristics of the Doppio Ritorto twill, we also ensure that an extra “non iron” treatment is added to the fabric.
our slim fit
Our slim fit shirts are designed for the man who wants to look sharp and fashionable whilst keeping his style classic and elegant. The slightly tapered silhouette around the waist and along the sleeves allows comfort without being overly fitted around the body ensuring an easy and soft wear for long hours.
