Do bear in mind that many of Flusser's recommended Italian shops in Italy appear to be shops selling the British look if not British clothing. Obviously this doesn't apply to Battistoni and the like, but there are many shops that didn't end up in his book. One that did is Ugolini in Florence, the glove shop. The other famous glovers in FLorence is MAdova. There is also a bespoke shoemaker in FLorence (I think) named Roberto Ugolini for whom Vass allegedly designed the U-last (for a RTW collection).
