Are there places in Milan to get great deals on fashion that are not mimics of the US outlet malls that are not real deals. Recommendations greatly appreciated. Thanks
There are a couple of places in town:
This is along the lines ok tj maxx or century 21 in the US. They carry high end names, but as with all these places, it can be a bit hit and miss.
Then there’s the MaxMara group outlet
Not a big shop, but they have some very nice pieces and it’s right in the centre, so worth dropping in when you go to see the Duomo.
There’s also the markets, sometimes you can find good pieces, but there’s lots of rummaging needed.
If you want more choice you’d have to go to one of the big outlets outside town, imo these are better than the ones in the US (but i’ve only been to woodbury in NY)
Note that this one is just inside the Swiss boarder, so you’ll need to consider the exchange rate.
