Ripley Anzio knit shirt


For the first in our Icon series, we look towards The Talented Mr Ripley (1999); instantly conjuring effortless Italian coastal cool, sun-bleached days followed hazy nights. After years of watching and re-watching this film it was only a matter of time before we took what we knew of these knit shirts and made them a reality. Every detail –  the weaves, buttons, colours and the all important collars – have been fastidiously analysed to re-imagine the two seminal knits worn by Jude Law’s character, Dickie Greenleaf in this cult classic.

Made in Milan, Italy, using a fine-gauge 100% Merino wool the crisp white body has blue/grey textured front panels which are set between strong striped detailed lines. Every detail, weave, button, colour and the all important collars have been fastidiously analysed to create ‘knit-nerd’ accurate pieces.

Model wears size XSmall.

Each of these knit shirts are made-to-order on the 1st & 15th of each month and take up to 4-6 weeks to make and dispatch. For more information scroll down, where you’ll find detailed information on the order window, a full sizing chart, helpful sizing tips and everything else we thought you’d like to know. 




You asked and we listened; the wait is over and our order window is now open. For the first two pieces in our Icon Series every detail –  the weaves, buttons, colours and the all important collars – has been fastidiously analysed to re-imagine these two seminal knit shirts worn by Jude Law’s character, Dickie Greenleaf in the cult classic The Talented Mr Ripley (1999). Come away with us to the town of Anzio (for all the film fans, this was where the bustling piazza and cafe scenes were shot). Made in Milan, Italy, using a fine 100% Merino wool, this is the closest you’ll get to the pieces you see on screen.


How ordering works:
We work with artisan knitters – not factories – to ensure our knits are produced to the highest possible standard. As such, our knitters have a limited number of pieces they can produce each month, so we help them maximise their efficiency by placing our knitwear orders in monthly batches. For the Ripley Anzio and Ripley Ischia, we will be placing our orders on the 1st & 15th of each month, and the batch of knits will be shipped back to us in London 4-5 weeks later. Once we have the knits back we will send them out to you, so please allow up to 4-6 weeks in total. Kindly note that your delivery date is calculated from the 1st & 15th of the month, regardless of when your order is placed. We are offering shipping with DHL to ensure your knit arrives promptly, wherever you are in the world.


If you would like to spread the cost and pay a 50% deposit/down-payment to start the production of your knit shirt, please follow this link – 50% knit shirt deposit offer. We will prompt you to pay the final 50% remaining when the knit shirt is ready to dispatch.



For those of you who know SFC already, the fit of the Ripley Anzio knit is the similar to our usual core range of knit shirt. It has a standard fit  that wears well with mid to higher rise trousers – please review our size chart below for more information and please allow a tolerance for the knit fabric. 

For those of you looking to make an alteration to the body length of the knit shirt, as we make to order in Milan, we are now offering the ability for you to select how much to lengthen or shorten your knit shirt by – Ripley Anzio knit shirt (Length alteration)


It’s important remember when reviewing the sizechart (below) that knitwear is a garment that has stretch and movement in the weave. There’s no need to scrutinise every number on the chart, as you may normally do with a fixed/rigid fabric, such as cotton shirting. When measuring pieces, please understand the nature of the knit material and where possible we aim to take EXACT dimensions, a degree of tolerance must be considered with the stretch etc. Order for your chest size.

Please note these shirts are made-to-order and are non-refundable, see our Order Terms for more information. Please contact us if you have any questions, we are here and happy to help. 


Styling tip:
No need to tuck the shirt too, with a straight hem, the length of the Ripley Anzio is ideal when worn relaxed over shorts or trousers. Why not pair it with a pair of our higher waisted trousers or shorts.

Looking for something to style under your knit? Wear with our perforated vest for the full look. 

Made in Milan, Italy. Dry clean preferred – 100% Merino wool
