    I know that this topic has already been raised several times on this forum and I have reviewed all relevant threads but I would like to revisit it again to refresh my memory and wrap the things up before my upcoming trip to Italy[​IMG]

    I am interested in the names of the shops in Milan, Florence and Rome and their surroundings (not necessarily the flagship ones) that carry Borrelli, Barba, Barbera and similar names. Particularly I am very keen to know which ones carry both current and old collections (though not very stale) at the discounted prices.

    Your kind advice will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dmitry

    Is there anyway to post that here? I am heading to Rome this summer and was going to ask the same question. Thanks

    Cheers! Have you been to any of these outlets? Do they sell something worth considering?

    Borrelli has a discount outlet store at McArthur Glen Serravalle outlet mall, about 100 miles south of Milan. They also have a Brioni store.
    Hmm, also Testoni, D&G, Etro, Barbera, Pal Zileri, Prada, Cavalli, Ferragamo, Mantellassi...

    A flight from Frankfurt-Hahn to Pisa is going to run me less than a hundred euros...

    Unfortunately there is no guarantee that these shops carry some decent stuff. They may well be devastated by occasional tourists
