Ripley Ischia 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 by 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 soft yellow waffled main body has off-white front panels, with two pockets set on the waist. 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 15th of each month and take 4 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). We’re on the Island of Ischia (for all the film fans, this was where the good life was filmed, sun drenched days, followed by hazy nights). 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 15th of each month, and this batch of knits will be ready to ship one month later. Kindly note that your delivery date is calculated from the 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.


Order windows:

  • Order by 15th June for deliveries from mid July
  • Order by 15th July for deliveries from mid August
  • Order by 15th August for deliveries from mid September
  • Order by 15th September for deliveries from mid October


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 Ischia knit is the similar to our Lido shirts. It has a slightly wider fit as standard, with a body length to hit you on or around your hip, perfect when worn with mid to higher waist trousers/shorts – please review our size chart below for more information. It’s important remember when reviewing the size-chart (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. Order for your chest size and if in doubt, size-up; they work well worn with a more relaxed and easy fit.


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

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

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. 

*For our first order window we are not taking any custom orders in length/chest. However, please contact us if you like to make any special requests for the future potential for us to do so.
