Umberto Chiappe



Sensible, classic and casual Italian menswear near the Ponte Vecchio.

Since 1928, the family-run Umberto Chiappe boutique has dressed Florentine men from this spot with arguably one of the best views of the Ponte Vecchio on the banks of the Arno river. Find very classic, sporty menswear with a selection of Italian labels such as Gianfranco Ferrè and Trussardi. A traditional stock of casual and preppy wear such as trousers, jeans, khakis, checked shirts, polos, jackets and accessories including shoes, will keep you looking like a Florentine on his day off: coloured trousers, loafers, collared shirt with a sweater thrown around the neck.

The look is conservative but sensible; refined but informal; and more than anything else, Italian.
