Italian term or phrase: a fianco chiuso
Oltre al bespoke vero e proprio, questo piccolo laboratorio artigiano crea anche camicie pronte in taglia per Maurizio Marinella con i canonici otto passaggi a mano: giromanica, asola, spalla, bottone, collo, travetti, mouche e cannoletto.
Il fianco è ribattuto “all’inglese”, la manica attaccata a fianco chiuso e le cuciture a macchina presentano ben 9 punti per centimetro.

From the same text. Thanks for any help.

after side seams are sewn
Explanation:
Often the sleeve is sewn to the body of the shirt after only the shoulder seam is sewn, thereby making it easier to sew up the sleeve seam and side seam all at once. For bespoke shirts, the two seams are not continuous so the side seams needs to also be stitched up and the sleeve is set in after this. It is more complicated but provides for a better fit.
