The wait is over and orders are now open for our second release in the Icon Series collection. This time we’ve fastidiously recreated two pieces worn by Henry Hill in the Scorsese cult classic Goodfellas (1990).
Each order comes with a complimentary set of our perforated vests.
This piece has been grail for us for as long as we can remember and one you’ve been asking after for just as long. After years of collecting vintage knit shirts we were fortunate enough to obtain the same knit that was worn in these same scenes through a costume house contact in the USA – wow. Having the originals has been a blessing and a curse, as we know what perfect looks like. But perfect doesn’t come overnight and it takes a lot of back-and-fourth with the talented knitters we work with. Now ready to go, ‘knit-nerd’ accuracy has been achieved.
Every single detail has been considered – from the curved collar line, the exact knitted spacing between those all important stripes, domed covered buttons at just right size to the unqiuely custom-dyed blue front panel colour to match the original piece we have. Named after one of the main restaurants establishments in the film, we thought it a perfect ode to celebrate and toast to this icon.
Made in Portugal using a fine 100% Merino wool, this is the closest you’ll get to the pieces you see on screen.
How ordering works:
We currently hold a limited amount of stock for both of our Goodfellas knit shirts.
When purchasing either the Salerno or Idlewild knit on their own, we will have your knit sent out to you within 1 week of your order date.
If you purchase these knits alongside any of our made-to-order items, the usual listed production timelines will apply and will be sent once the whole order is completed.
Both our Goodfellas knits are a classic fit, with ease in the shoulder and body width which allows for them to be worn over a vest or t-shirt. See our size chart above for more information.
Leo is pictured wearing a size MEDIUM and is 5ft 10″ and has a 39″ chest. He could opt for a SMALL if he wanted a slightly less roomy fit.
No need to tuck the shirt if you don’t want to, with a straight hem and waistband, the length of the Goodfellas knits are ideal when worn relaxed over shorts or trousers. Pair with our higher waisted trousers or shorts, or if you are looking for something to style under your knit, wear with our perforated vest for the full look.
Dry clean advised – once wool is washed in water it never hangs quite hangs the same.
100% Merino wool.
