This time I want to address a very particular of Milan. It's called Il Vecchio Drappiere and is a shop specializing in bespoke vintage dress fabrics .
They are one of the oldest shops in Milan. It is located a few steps from the Duomo, in via Marvel 16. You can also contact them at 02 / 866634 .
But because there wis submit this store? Simple . Because it is unique in Europe and in the world . From them I found incredible vintage fabrics . Some have more than 80 years. And just think that Zegna has gone from them to look for fabrics that had done 100 years ago.
They still have the best flannels in the world of vintage Guabello . And then have coats of 1940. As well as have many fantastic English fabrics . For example, they have the old jackets in cashmere Wain Shiell 1960. And they also have a few more cutting cloth , Reid & Taylor always 1950.
Below you can see the pictures I took when I went the last time the Vecchio Drappiere . At that time I bought a fabric so old they do not have any signs wear . certainly has a quality crazy . So the photos you see of individual tissues belong to my private collection . And of course I've ever taken from them.
