    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.

    Yesterday I went to the Vecchio Drappiere in Milan in search of vintage fabric to make pants bespoke fun. And look what I found ... it's two flannels Italian outdated. What do you think?

    Thank you for your message. VecchioDrappiere prices for wool vintage ranging from 90 to 150 Euros. Then the price of vintage cashmere salt of course. It depends on the weight and brand. But of course they all have wonderful things. Every time I go I get lost between the shelves and vintage fabrics. And they are one of the few shops in Europe to have those vintage fabrics of the highest quality. They tissues of 70-80 years ago.

    here are some more images of vintage by Vecchio Drappiere ... it is a vintage cashmere coat Joshua Ellis English. is great .. and you think that still weighs 850 grams per square meter ... has a unique and wonderful softness. And then those colors are fantastic.

    What do you think?

    They specialize in vintage fabrics for suits and coats. Then have modern fabrics for clothing. They also have a small selection of shirt fabrics.

    From vintage printed silks tie still hand ... because I do bespoke vintage ties ... I io =) ... they are not thirsty.

    But you're interested in the fabrics dress? Or from shirts?

    If you are interested in fabrics shirts tell me because I have an address on milan that will be useful.

    Does il vecchio drappiere sell silk suiting? Is this where you bought the material for your silk coat?

    Where is the store that sells shirt fabric? Thanks.
