100% Italian Cotton Gest Shirt


Gest shirts are characterized by a superior quality, given by the control of the production chain starting from the seed, up to the finished product. This makes our shirts unique and exclusive. It is wonderful to witness the intertwining of the threads in sewing the buttonholes and the beauty of the "half stitch" on the shoulder. Only those who are rooted in these realities are lucky enough to be able to see them. This is what distinguishes Gest shirts from those made elsewhere.

The Italian taste and dexterity in carrying out certain operations, which the whole world envies, is a challenge that is giving the company considerable satisfaction.

Cotton Managed

Gest cotton is the finest in the world and is among the finest, ideal for white and blue fabrics.

In each fiber of Gest cotton, already in its raw state, an extraordinary sheen can be seen.

The advantages of this cotton compared to the others are: extraordinary softness, delicate sheen, wear resistance.


The products differ mainly in the quality of the fabrics used and in the hand-made steps and finishes, focusing attention on every single detail.


The seams are performed with a single needle, using very high precision sewing machines: 8 stitches per centimetre. This special seam joins the fabrics more firmly.

Before packaging, each seam is finished by hand a second time, eliminating any imperfections.

Our Gest shirt factory, located in Puglia in the Capitanata plain, has the mission of producing the first completely Made in Italy cotton harvest.

Our revolutionary project aims to give life to a zero kilometer supply chain for the production of shirting fabric, developing a 100% Italian cluster dedicated to the cultivation of cotton.

A cluster that can take care of all the operational phases, from harvesting to weaving up to the final manufacturing of the product.

Camicia Gest 100% Made in Italy

"This first harvest of Italian cotton paves the way for new prospects for a truly sustainable and completely Italian textile supply chain, even in those early stages that no longer belong to us since the first half of the last century. The future of our textiles will have the opportunity to express increasingly innovative potential in all production steps, thus allowing for an excellent product and safe traceability."
