leather coat in Florence

Any suggestions about buying a leather jacket in Florence. Do you recommend a shop? Are prices really better and how to tell the difference between real Italian and China imports? Thanks

'......right off the bat you're paying an approximately 30% mark-up due to the dollar-to-Euro exchange rate.' Huh? The exchange rate, a long as it's steady, has nothing to do with mark-up or bargains. You can get sixteen plus yuan for a buck - - let's go buy China out and fix the trade problem.

Err.. you might also want to post this in the To the Boot section, there isn't any Florence in the UK. The only Florence I know of outside Italy, is Florence, Kentucky. There is a great mall in KY. ; ) Florence, Y'all! Pam
