Since its foundation, our shop has been dealing with the retailing of clothing fabrics, always distinguishing itself from the high quality of the products offered, which over two and a half centuries have allowed it to conquer the Milanese market giving itself a top place in the order of trade of prestigious fabrics.
Surviving the Habsburg and Napoleonic domination, and resisting the two world war conflicts, in the late sixties a new leadership began the gradual process of renewal which characterised the new commercial image of the Guenzati company in the years to come, converting it into a unique place of its genre and a special point of reference not only for the lovers of British style but also for the many tourists who come every year from around the world to visit Milan.
Walking through the doorstep of our shop, you have the impression that time stopped many years ago by recalling the images of a past now lost when customers went to the shops to make their purchases by calash and carriage. Living the familiar and informal atmosphere that today welcomes the visitor in a relaxing location mixed with that "scent" of past times, which is still breathed in our shop just a step away from the Duomo, makes the visit to Guenzati a unique experience, more and more rare to be found in the chaotic and indifferent commercial city of Milan.
Inside, it is still possible to admire the original furniture from the first half of the eighteenth century, consisting of desks and counters made of precious national walnut in perfect Biedermeier style with simple lines and typical decorations of rectangles, legacy and testimony of a time gone by, and with that amongst the Guenzati shop's shelves there is still an extraordinary momentum of vibrance.
Nowadays our shop, the oldest in Milan, has a wide selection of tweed and fine worsted fabrics, Scottish tartan, a carefully selected array of hats, caps, scarves, sweaters, ties, stockings and accessories of various kinds of production strictly Anglo-Saxon and to the envy of their same Highlanders.
