Definitely. Best shop in Firenze.

Bill, thanks for this thread. It was very helpful while my wife and I were there a couple weeks ago.

Didn't take pictures of any shops except those of Bemer, Ugolini, and HIdetaka:

Outside Stefano Bemer's bespoke shop:
467

The man himself:
467

Bespoke shoes (and some of his many awards):
467
263
Stephano's favorite shoe model:
263

His brother Mario runs their rtw shop a block or two away. Outside that shop:
263
Mario himself:
467
Some of their shoes and other leather goods designed by Mario:
467
467
467

Rtw lasts:
263

Many hides to choose from: American shell, French calf, English suede, etc:
263
The Bemers were super nice, perhaps the nicest people we met in Italy, excepting some nuns.

Ugolini's shop, with three apprentices hard at work:
263
He stepped out, right after saying it'd be OK to take pictures, but here are more of his shoes:
467

Just one pic of Hidetaka Fukaya's shoes. We arrived soon before closing and I felt too embarrassed to take more. Plus, Gazman has some great shots of his shop.
263
I also popped into another workshop for a bespoke maker that starts with an "m," probably Mannina. It was very interesting and the people (older Italian man and young asian women apprentices) kind, but I forgot to take pictures.

Wanted to take a look at Saskia Wittmer, but it was closed when we got there.

The only tailors we visited were Liverano, but I didn't take any pics. They had one of the most interesting and beautiful things I saw in Florence: scarves made of grenadine, fina, in a silk/wool blend.

Didn't commission anything custom in the city, but I would have if they'd been based in my home town. The level of craftsmanship at these places was tremendous. This was comforting after seeing the junk being sold at most shops. Overall, compared to the last time I was there, eleven years ago I think, the quality of goods has really declined and/or prices have multiplied. I did buy a nice sweater, a tie, and a wonderful deerskin overnight bag from Ottino (thanks for the rec, Roger):

oops, i almost missed this. excellent post. much appreciated.
post #67 of 107
Thanks for sharing. Do you happen to know the price ranges for Bemer bespoke and RTW?
post #68 of 107
Thanks guys. Unfortunately, I don't remember the prices. I want to say around 600 Euros for rtw and 1500 for bespoke, but I could be way off.

After a bit of research and this thread (thanks whnay) I compiled this map: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=212210817628578744397.0004d19f21588a013f68a

 

It will come in use for me when I go to Pitti next week and hopefully others.

 

If you have any additions, please speak up.

Settantarte or LR
Via Porta Rossa, 78/R

Small shoe store. Nice shoes (made by former Sutor Mantellassi employees) and good prices.

Luciano Gloves
On the road that leads to the Pontevecchio.

A bit cheaper than Madova and also good quality.


I think on Via Roma there is another men's store where you have to walk up some stairs. Can't remember the name though.

He has a few shops - I put this one on the map - Piazza Beccaria, 3

 

Thanks for that one though, I was having trouble finding it on Google maps but just did.
