Brunello Cucinelli, Solomeo

6 Piazza della Chiesa
Italy 06070
Tel: 39 075 529 481's insider take:

Italy's cashmere king has his home base in the tiny village of Solomeo, west of Perugia. Here, about 400 workers turn top-quality Mongolian cashmere into the almost 600,000 sweaters, jackets, skirts, and other womens' and menswear items that Cucinelli's company turns out annually. The "factory" is spread among the heavily restored houses of the village, and the outlet—where this year's collection can be picked up for 30 percent off retail prices—is right at the heart of things, in the main square.

Closed Sundays. Closed Saturdays after 12:30 p.m.
