Pitti Uomo. It’s the bi-annual menswear show held in Florence. And it’s where Italy’s most fashionable men take to the streets, treating it like a fashion runway, strutting their stuff for all to see. It goes without saying that when it comes to dressing, no one does it better than the Italians. So if you’re looking to become a Pitti Peacock (yes, that’s Pitti, not pretty), then check out this year’s trends…
The guy on the left, that’s who you want to look at here. While the other two are keeping it formal, this chap’s untucked collarless shirt makes him look comfortably casual, without losing a bit of sophistication.
A wind-breaker and drop crotch pants in Pitti? Totally. And who says you can’t. When it comes to athleisure, no one other than the Italians does it best.
Fit To Be Tied
His tie looks like a mistake. But only to the untrained sartorialist’s eye. The longer back of the tie gives your look just a touch of the “I don’t give a F***” everyone needs.
A camp collard shirt with dad jeans? Is this photo from the 70’s? Nope. Just more proof that when it comes to fashion, what goes around comes around.
This is how the Italians relax. As should you
In The Army
On days when you’re not sure what to wear, a washed blue shirt with a field jacket always – I repeat – always works.
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that wide pants are back. Of course, you’ve got to have the personality to pull them off as they’re not for everyone.
Not for the faint of heart, rocking sneaks like these take a very bold person. One who knows that the rest of the outfit must be muted.
Besides the Italians, no one loves Pitti more than the Japanese. Why? Because it’s the Japanese, along with the Italians, that are making the best menswear in the world right now.
If style icon Nick Wooster isn’t there, it’s not a fashion show.
Know The Rules…
… before you break them. 10 out of 10 fashion articles will tell you to never ever wear sandals in public. But do you see anything unfashionable happening here? Thought not.
You can never go wrong going tonal. It’s always in style.
