About
In the heart of historical centre of renaissance Florence tucked away in a characteristic street called “ Via del Corso” at number 51r Piero Puliti has his shop. The street runs between the “Piazza Duomo” square and the “Palazzo Vecchio” town hall.The interior decoration of the shop is in cherry wood, and the work was carried out by a highly skilled artisan, and some of its characteristic bring to mind the english influence which strongly affected the most important shops at the beginning of the twentieth century. At that time, these assiduous anglo-saxon visitors to Florence greatly influenced the style of dressing for men. And even today a lingering atmosphere of the past century can still be perceived on certain streets in parts of the city. Piero Puliti’s concept of his shop upon entering, gives the impression of being in a private home, even an ancient fire place has been adapted to display shirts, neck-tie and cufflink. The walls of the shop have been fitted with pull out drawers, designed to provide a perfect view of every single shirt on display. Pictures, prints and furnishing have been chosen with the utmost care, so that whoever should enter feels enveloped in warm homely surroundings, an atmosphere created by host owner Piero Puliti.

Neighbourhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Fine fabrics and fine shirts
May 2016 • Couples
The TA reports are so true and that is what brought me here. I love fine shirts and good value. I normally buy Thomas Pink shirts. These shirts are cut slightly fuller than the Pink slim shirts. These have a tad more room but still fit beautifully. These fabrics, made and sown in Italy, are much better. I have a 35"sleeve length and these shirts gave me plenty of length. The collar is also perfect. I bought 3 shirts for myself and one, the size, for my brother who is 3 inches taller.
The owner is very personable and really helped. I am very happy with my buys.

beautiful mens shirts, exceptional quality fabrics, design, fit. Bought 3 shirts 3 ties.
Feb 2016 • Couples
Mid February 2016 we walked past this store as it was very close to our hotel. Each time my husband would stop and we stood at the shop window and noticed the shirts and ties. Over our 9 day visit to Florence we did this several times. What drew us in was the texture of the shirts and the lovely colors. We finally went in and found the shirts exceptional, you can't get these anywhere else. The button down is a hidden button down. The cotton cashmere fabric has the most amazing hand. These shirts don't only feel soft, they look soft. The textures of these shirts add a whole other element that you can't get anywhere else. The shirts are a European fit and they fit like a glove.

We purchased three shirts and three ties. The prices are more than some but less than what I expected for the high quality fabric and design. We had many items on the counter and one tie got left out of the shopping bag. We noticed the next day but because of a day trip we couldn't get back to the store for two days. We had barely opened the shops door when the wonderful gal there recognized us. She instantly pulled the right tie off the shelf and put it in a new bag and handed it to my husband with apologies. We just had a lot on the counter and things got a little confusing. The gal had tried to catch us after we left but as I said our hotel was very close by, we were around a corner in moments after leaving two days earlier.

It is a source of pride to own and wear these shirts and ties, you can't get these anywhere but here. This store is one of a handful of reasons we have to come back to Florence for our second visit. The gal there was friendly, honest, provided great options, great on sizing, lovely person to have met in Florence. Thank you so much.

Impeccable quality and service in a charming little shop
May 2013 • Solo
Stores like Piero Puliti are the reason you visit Florence. They don't offer an overwhelming selection in this cozy little shop, but their inventory consists of shirts and ties of peerless quality. The duo of owners (whose paintings adorn the wall) are incredibly kind, capable in English, and will set you up with the right shirt. The styles are fashionable and will impress in a professional or personal setting. If you go, you'll feel compelled to get the word out the way I am now.
