The sale season in Milan starts first Saturday in July. Anybody know of any cant-miss boutiques there? Will be there on the weekend of the 17th. I'm definitely going to hit up Transit and Buttero.
I remember a year or two ago reading about a furniture designer in Brooklyn who found an enormous stockpile of WWII era military fabric and started making home furnishings from it. I guess his crap went gangbusters.Maybe you google him down and offer to pay a premium for some of his raws.

The bigger grays have their own workshops. Tudor is basically a Rolex, but with an ETA movement instead of an in-house movement and a slightly lower grade of finish. But it's the same company.
