    Looking for high end shirts in particular, such as Borrelli, Finamore, Truzzi, Brioni, etc.

    Any ideas?

    I'm actually In Cannes now. I'm blessed with relatives who live here so my wife and I come every year, but I always struggle to find the out-of-the-way gems of high end clothing shops that I would expect to find with a city of old, traditional Italian and French money. Not the well known label boutiques on the Croisette in Cannes inundated by new money but lesser known places that carry the likes of the brands I mentioned--or equally good--relatively unknown lines of quality shirt makers.

    I went to Cap3000 in Nice and found some nice dress shirts in the Nodus boutique, but, while they are made in Italy and have speead collars similar in shape to Borrelli, they are not comparable with the quality of a Borrelli or Finamore, Barbara, etc.

    I don't have any options to give you but I am heading to Cannes next month. So I would certainly appreciate a PM if you locate any other interesting stores.
