Leonardo Bugelli, the most renowned Florentine shirtmaker, in his new workshop at Via Frà Bartolommeo 21/R. When I dropped by two weeks ago, we talked about that precious bespoke clothing and accessible ready to wear are blending. People may combine a 2000 euro bespoke sports jacket with 50 euro trousers. Old categories of highbrow and lowbrow mix. It is not an either-or situation anymore. In his Leonardo exemplifies the movement himself. I wrote about the phenomenon here too.
Tiemaker Raffaele Muro of Antonio Muro was also there. Unlike Leonardo, who prefers a little flamboyance, Raffaele is always soberly dressed in grey, white, beige or blue.
