Every time I go to Italy I can't wait to pay a visit to Boggi, and I was at the Siena store this summer as well... Nice little store, but not the best salespeople I think (even by Belgian standards
I own a lot of different items from Boggi, ranging from ties to sweaters and from shirts to pants, including belts. The price/quality ratio is really incredible. OK, the stuff is cheap, so it's not the best construction around, but for the price it's really unbeatable. In Belgium you would have to pay three times as much for the same quality in some supposedly upmarket department store.
I really appreciate their ties and their dress shirts. Those shirts fit well, have nice patterns, a nice construction, a nice collar (the cutaway one) and are "hassle-free" (easy to iron, easy to combine with other pieces of clothing). They size small however (I'm a 15'1/2" and sport a 16' -i.e. 40 with Boggi).
Frankly I'd recommend Boggi without an hesitation when you're around in Italy.
NB: (a little) more about Boggi in a recent SF thread
