    Tie your Tie is a great shop with a ridiculous name

    Remember to make an appointment at Bugelli - it is not a shop, but rather a workshop

    As someone who spends a lot of time in Florence I think you've got pretty much everything covered.

    Now how are you set for eating?

    "za za" for lunch is incredible

    marinated artichokes followed by tagliata is great. Tagliata anywhere in florence is great (compared to the us) if thats your thing.

    Just got back last week. For food, definitely go to Frescobaldi and ask for Francesco or Primo. Excellent menu and extremely knowledgeable on the wine. Right off of Piazza Signoria. La Giostra is also pretty good. Near Piazza Santa Croce. MangiaFoco on S. Apostoli is great for a quick lunch. Try the bresaola panini. It's just down the street from Ferragamo.

    And one more shop: Eredi Chiarini, Via Roma 16r [Just re-read your post, you got this one]. Oh, and Happy Jack on Vigna Nuova (right across from Sutor) has tons of Borrelli, including some beautiful cashmere/wool ties.

    Highlight (apart from getting a new work bag 1/2 off at Sutor): I saw Simone Righi of Sartorialist fame hollering into his mobile phone outside of Tie Your Tie. He was rockin' his intepretation of the security guard.

    A great shop. Bought this cashmere puppy from there for a cool 15 euros.

    I'm moving to Florence in three months. So I look forward to checking out all of these (of those posted, I only know Bugelli and Milord). Does anyone know an alterations tailor they would swear by? There seems to be a fair amount of Florence expertise here.

    Foodwise, Da Marios, the tripa place in the market and La Giostra and the fresh homemade pasta place (you buy it and cook it yourself at home). Had dinner at Villa St Michel which was a nice venue but foodwise wasn't spectacular.

    FYI, for Bemer, when I was last in Florence (about a year and a half ago), the San Frediano address was for bespoke only. Pret a porter and MTM were done out of the shop around the corner on Via di Camaldoli (less than five minutes away). The Via di Camaldoli store front not only was larger and contained the workshop, but it also had what seemed to be a larger display of styles, etc. Signore Bemer was also there on both occasions I showed up (and even gave me an umbrella when the skies suddenly opened as I was about to leave - and prior to my placing an order - a good man, no doubt).

    If you're in the mood for non-sartorial pleasures, while you're trekking between Bemer, Ugolini (right off Piazza Santo Spirito) and Madova at the end of the Ponte Vecchio, there is a store just to the northeast corner of Piazza Santo Spirito, on Via Santo Spirito, just west of the Ponte Santa Trinita which has some fantastic prints (name escapes me, but something like Puck). Then grab some amazing cured meats (at least twenty different cured hams (each still on the bone) from all over Italy) at Olio e Convivium across the street.

    Only other recs are do visit the Scuola di Cuoio at Santa Croce (even though every tourist book tells you to do so) - was interesting and the quality of the products was quite good. Also, Scriptorium for great papers - Piazza Pitti on the Oltrano side.

    Thanks for sharing everyone. There was a few addresses that will be added to my little black book. I'll be in Florence later this month for a Panerai event.

    Bloody Phatty knocked some sense into me and I have cancelled my appointment with Hidetaka Fukaya...

    Agree with Luk-Cha, he makes great shoes, we met him a couple of weeks ago. While you are there you should at least stop by his shop, I am sure you will change your mind then.

    What kind of event are Panerai holding that would warrant a trip to Florence to attend ?, I am not too keen on Panerai to be honest.

    Try the poached lambs brain at Il Cibrèo.

    Also, take a couple k with you and drink like a fish at Enoteca Pinchiorri. After you are bankrupt, take less money and drink like a fish at Enoteca Fuoriporta.
