Tod's Made-to-Order Milano mens club
The Sartorial Touch is a new luxury space housed on the fourth floor in Tod's Milano flagship at 22, Via Spiga. With private tailoring desks, a wet bar and lounge, Tod's customers will be able to order custom shoes, bags, luggage and small leather accessories - delivered in two months. Reviving old world mens clubs has been happening with greater frequency in the last decade or so, but the ability to create made-to-order shoes in this environment has us particularly eager to visit the Tod's Milano store again.
Gucci's first mens flagship and made-to-measure collection with Lapo Elkann
Also in Milan, Gucci unveiled it's first mens flagship in Brera. Three floors, covering 5,400 square feet, and a dedicated made-to-measure program, and an application for LEED certification are some of the highlights. The made-to-measure collaboration between Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and Lapo Elkann, Italian style icon and businessman, (pictured above) will make its premiere at the store this month. And yes, made-to-order shoes are also available.
