spatchIf your shopping program in Italy includes buying jackets, bags and shoes – consider the factory stores, where you can buy items directly from the manufacturer. They give you a number of advantages:

– a wide range of models and availability of all sizes,

– new items as well as models from the previous collections, which are sold at a significant discount,

– less tourists in the stores compared to the center of Milan,

– and, of course, the price! The average cost of one pair of shoes, for example, will cost you 4 times less than in the boutique in your country and 1.5-2 times less than in one of the shops in the center of Milan. Besides, discounts on the last season collection can reach 50-70%.


Factory stores usually offer men’s and women’s shoes, bags, belts, wallets, leather jackets and blazers.


Trip to a factory store can be not only economically advantageous, but also very interesting, because on some plants (i.e. Riccardo Banfi) you will have an opportunity to see the masters at work, creating the real “Made in Italy” shoes.


Cost of trip to factory stores with a private car transfer (and language support) – 250 euro (includes transfer + 6 hours of waiting).
