    I am traveling to Europe for business but I am making a side trip to Lake Como for a friend's wedding. I wondered if anyone had any recommendations for shopping in the area? I know that the region was once the silk capital of the world. It would be great to get some ties.

    Thanks in advance.

    if you're in como itself, hop across the border, literally, to chiasso in switzerland, and then take a taxi or bus to mendrisio where one of the foxtown outlets is(www.foxtown.ch) mendrisio is about 20 minutes (no more than 30) from como itself

    Go into Milan for a day, an amazing city for shopping.
