Hey guys, my first post, so dont rip me apart if it sounds silly

Im going to visit an Italian company Ive worked for and am comfortable with, but have not visited the HQ before in Florence. They are an industrial company, so I assume they are less mindful of fashion than their friends in Milan.

Anyhow, Im American, if you couldnt infer by now.

Id like to hear your suggestions for what you think is nice dress and casual clothing, made in the USA. I have Italian made, etc. clothes laying around, but have joked with them that when I come by, Ill sport the American stuff only!!

Thanks

slim pickings if you mean RTW.. For shoes, Alden; for shirts, Brooks Brothers Black Fleece; for suits, Golden Fleece and some 1818.. As I said, not much unless you choose bespoke..
