I put in both names, people know the store by both names so I thought it would be better like that.

When I was in Florence in June the name plate above the store was empty.

Great work btw, we should have such a thread for every major city.

I agree. A map thread! I wonder if it's possible that other people, aside from the person who made it, could edit the map. Might get a bit hectic, but it would be annoying for the OP to have to continually update it..

I had researched this a few years ago for the Styleforum community map and ended up with this http://www.styleforum.net/t/34621/the-definitive-styleforum-community-map/0_100

5+ years later, I'm sure there are websites that use the google maps open architecture that are less clumsy than that

Awesome. Reading through that thread now. Thanks.

For Bistecca alla Fiorentina I can recommend Alessi (Pentola D'Oro) on via di Mezzo 24-26 r (all'angolo con via dei Pepi) - Firenze.

If you are in Florence for a while I would recommend heading through to Bologna for the day. Not only is Bologna full of great shops it has some excellent restaurants with Papagallo among my favourites.

Oddly enough, my favorite part of this store was the selection of Church's shoes. Great store with some genuinely great, helpful staff..

Also, in the same area, Michele Negri, which carries a healthy amount of Kiton and some truly great looking ties..

Dear all,

 

I am on the last night of my Italian trip (3 nights in Rome and 2 in Florence) and currently resting from an yet-again intensive walk today.

 

I visited most of the shops advised on the list so here are my impressions:

 

- Frasi: Simone is a delightful and very open man. Nice selection in the shop of Sartoria Napoli (Kiton), Cesare Attolini and Orazio Luciano. All are very expensive and I ended up buying some tobacco cotton trousers by Zanella

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

- Liverano: That was a difficult one. I met Takahiro-san that was very pleasant to talk to and also saw Signore Liverano. What I mean by difficult is that I had promised myself not to buy anything apart from a tie maybe and I ended up with a tie... and an unlined navy 3-roll-2 jacket. But I tried it on and it felt like a second skin which is extremely rare for me as I wear 44 IT (34 US) so you can only imagine how difficult it is to find my size, even less fitting well. Anyway, I'm thrilled about the jacket and the place has a nice selection, including some exquisite fabrics ready for a bespoke order. 

 

 

 

 

 

- Madova: Nice little shop with a good selection. Bought an unlined pair for Miss and an unlined pecari pair for myself. Prices are not very interesting though.

 

- Lorenzo Villoresi: this is a must. His fragrance workshop is exquisite and the creations are delightful.

 

- Milord: interesting shop selling PT01, Jacob Cohen, Marinella and so on. Opted for Jacob Cohen white jeans. Prices are the same than everywhere else.

 

- Eredi Chiardi: didn't find anything at my size there. Mostly Incotex and Cesare Attolini for the interesting part but prices are high.

 

- Casa dei tessuti: charming place 10 meters away from my B&B. The owner (family-owned business since 1929) is absolutely exquisite. He speaks a bit of every language so we discussed in Italian, English, French and Russian which was very amusing. He is friendly and keen on sharing the history of his store. Nice selection of fabrics but pricey.

To repeat, Ottino for leathergoods. I have one of their briefcases
for over 20 years and the lock still works:

I didn't find anything at Ottino and wasn't particularly impressed by the leather quality. Maybe their standards have lowered since the time you purchased your briefcase.

 

Regarding Frasi, one important thing to note is that he doesn't offer suits/jackets in sizes other than 38-42 US (48-52 EU) since they consider that sizes at both ends of the usual spectrum, i.e. EU 44 or 46 and EU 54 or 56 are too complicated to alter given the fact that people can be very tall but slim or short and slim/normal and wear the exact same size. That comment was made by Simone's assistant, I haven't been convinced by that since that is true for any size but well... So people at both ends of the size spectrum have to do MTM with them.

Apart from Madova and Luciano, does anyone have any other recommendations for glove shops in Florence?

Wow. What a list.

I am currently in Florence and thinking about maybe getting some shirts. . . . .

I have down Bernado on Porta Rossa to visit. . . anywhere else I should check?

Low-mid price range. . . !
