It’s on Sale: Barba shirts at Farfetch
Barba makes Italian-style shirts—dressy fabrics, plain “French” placket, darted body, straight or spread collar—that are usually priced between $200 and $300. They’re great shirts with shapely collars that work well with neckties or without (they’re rarely button down collars, though, so best to keep them tucked inside a jacket or sweater). Fortunately, they are often available at a discount. Right now, Farfetch, which aggregates stock of dozens of stores, mostly European, has a lot of Barba shirts marked down, and an additional 20% off code valid through Friday at 8:59am GMT (3:59 EST, 12:59 PST): x20jan14. Farfetch also includes duties in its shipping, at about $20, so you won’t get an additional bill, which sometimes happens with European stores shipping to the United States. That puts most of these shirts under $150 shipped. Other good sources for Barba: Yoox and Shopthefinest.
