Leather Jackets in Italy

I will be in Italy in the fall and I'd love to find a really nice leather jacket. I saw on the travel channel that you can have them made to your measurements and choose a style etc. Does anyone know where to find this type of shop or any other good info on leather goods?

I don't have any info about a shop that custom-makes jackets, but I did buy a beautiful leather Vera Pelle jacket when I was in Florence a couple of years ago. I no longer have the receipt or the name of the shop, but we happened upon it while we were walking from the Accademia to the duomo one evening. Shops that sell leather goods are numerous in Florence. It's the best souvenir I have ever purchased, because every time I where it I think of my wonderful time in Florence!

Laura -

Carlo Fagiani in Panzano will custom make a leather jacket and/or shoes. Panzano is halfway between Florence and Siena. It is beautiful stuff - and a fat price tag to go with it. Have fun.
