Albini is the largest shirting manufacturer in Italy. They were founded in 1876 and went through a period of rapid expansion in the 1990s under Silvio Albini.

In 1992 they bought British brand Thomas Mason when the shirting mill (the last significant one in the UK) closed down. It has since also acquired David & John Anderson and Albiate.

The four brands are presented today as distinct collections: All are represented by Crane Brothers in New Zealand.

Albini: Italian style, lightweight and subtle.

Thomas Mason: English style, often heavier and bolder.

Albiate: Denim and flannels.

David & John Anderson: Luxury Giza 45 and Sea Island cotton.
