Hi all,

I have the good fortune to be spending a weekend in Rome next week.

I would like to buy a short, casual chocolate brown suede jacket, either in a harrington/barracuta or a bomber/baseball style.

Is Rome a good place to buy such a jacket?

Could anyone recommend the areas I should be looking in?

Im not rich, so were probably talking about £250/$500.

Thanks in advance

squirrelG:

How did I miss this? I have some great shops in Florence.

When I was in Siena last year it seemed that every third man was wearing a great short suede jacket. I found several shops with varying prices. They seemed to be very similar in quality.

The shop where I finally purchased (in Siena), the jackets were only ca $100 !! When I saw the higher prices in the other shops, I went back and bough two.

If you're going to be able to get to Florence, let me know.

Did you look at these from medwards City Shopping Guides: A Compendium of AAAC Discussions ?

How about Florence?

Honestly, I don't know of a reasonably priced place in Rome to buy such a jacket, but how about Florence?

Sonia and Aldo of La Pelle (their shop is located just off the Ponte Vecchio across the Arno) are wonderful. If you can't take the train up for an afternoon in Florence, they do custom work, too. Just send Aldo your measurements and he can make a jacket for you in that price range.

Alternatively, also in Florence just down from La Pelle and across from the Pitti, is Casini. They're fabulous and have a men's chocolate suede jacket in antelope that is fabulous (I've got one they made for me). It's a little more than your stated range, though. Here's the link:

Have fun!

Hi

Thanks for your replies.

Unfortunately I don't think we'll have time to get to Florence.

I did have a look the city shopping guides Andy, but couldn't find anything directly relevant.

I guess I'll just have to see whats out there. I'll let you know if I find anything worthwhile.

Thanks again for your help though ...
