Hi Debby,

It is very kind of you :)

I need some information, but I don't know if I can get it here, but I will try....
Maybe you know there are some stores (like factory outlets) where all unsold clothes for previous collections are being collected from different shops and moved there. For example, unsold collections of famous brends like D&G, Prada, Gucci, etc....
In such stores such clothes normally are very very cheap, since they are from previous collections and are being sold under hugh discounts (more that 50-70%).
Do you know how to call such stores and where in Milan (or in Milan area) I can find some of them?

I read some info in internet about factory outlets (like D&G outlet in Florence or Outlet in Fox Town in Switzerland), but it seem to me that in those outlets a new collections are being sold, and prices are still high. And I need old collections with a very cheap price....

I hope that you can help me....

info on motorcylce license
 
Hi Debbie,
I'm from Australia. I would like to know if you could help with some info when you get the time.
I want to get my motorcycle license and am wondering if there is a possibility of doing it here in italy? Do they allow foreigners to get one? I only have an Australian Drivers License but I have had it for 10 years.


Thanks!
Georgia

Hey Georgia,

surely you can get your driving licence here in italy.
You must only have the entry visa or similar, I think that u cannot get the driving licence if u'r here as a tourist.

Anyway, I have friends that are getting the driving lic just in this days and I'll be able to give u some correct informations next days.

Bye and sorry for my english :o

Hi Gul!!
The places you mean are the factory outlets (we call them only outlet) and in Milan area (or near at least) there are a lot of them, I know very well some of them 'cause sometimes me and my friends go there for shopping :)

Well, in Milano city there are no big outlets, the best of them are in the hinterland, about 50/60km far from there (I live in Milan), and you can reach them by car.

The first and the biggest one I know is the Serravalle Outlet, the website says that the most important brands are: Asics, Rifle, Slam, Beauty Ventures, Benetton, Petit Bateau, Miroglio, Villeroy & Boch, Calzedonia, Frette, Marina Yachting, Henry Cotton's, Mandarina Duck, Pal Zileri, Samsonite, Cotton Belt, Calvin Klein, Guess, Sergio Tacchini, Levi's Strauss, Dockers, Diesel, Hammer, Stefanel, Nike, Binda, Pinko, Rebecchi, Invicta, Diadora, Cacharel, Valextra, Saldarini, Genny, Trussardi, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana etc....

And then there is the Fidenza Village, you can find the website (it have the enghisl language too) in google clicking Fidenza Village, the first result.

You found high prices in the outlets in Flocence or Switzerland because "they are rich" and their prices are high for everything you will buy eheheh..

Let me know!!

Bye

thanks

Thanks a lot for info, Debby.
It is very kind of you....

As I understood they sell not only new stock from factories, but also old stock (old season collections)? What is the best time to go there? When do they have the best discounts? Is it June or July? Or do they have discounts the whole year?


You also mentioned one outlet in the Hinterland. What is the name of that outlet?
Do you know if in outlets, which you mentioned in your post above, they sell good quality clothes? Are they as expensive as in the normal shops? Can you give me some price indications, please? For example for Prada and D&G clothes?
I am asking it, because yesterday I went to Big outlet in Roermond, it is in the Netherlands. That Outlets belongs to the chain of Mc Arthur Glen.
And the clothes which I saw there were really terrible..... And prices so high..... For example, for a very man's shirt in D&G outlet they asked EUR150-200 euro., for a simple trenchcoat in another Outlet they asked EUR350. And that trenchcoat was really very simple.....

It seemed to me that the price which they put in Outlet is almost the same as in normal shops....

Hi Gul,

outlets near Milan are too many, but the outlets I suggested you are surely the best.
Prices are low, surely not like normal shops, but you can find clothers with a low price as well as very expensive clothers.
Last time I saw a D&G smoking at 170, at Serravalle outlet, in a normal shop a D&G smoking can cost starting from 400 so on...

Surely the best moment for a good and not expensive shopping is the sales month, june or january, but I think u can find something interesting noe as well.
