Pitti Uomo 90

There’s a rumour going around that trade shows are fading out, however Florence-based men’s trade show Pitti Uomo is a different story. Influenced by its Renaissance roots and Italian gentleman peacock style, fashionistos from around the world fly in to attend this prestigious men’s fashion event every season. Street style photographs are captured from every angle, offering the world a detailed lookbook of men’s exquisite European style. Take inspiration from some of the most stylish men on the planet and learn about Pitti Uomo’s signature sartorial pieces, here.

A Bright Two-Piece Suit

Italian men in particular adore colour. Look sharp and remain unique with a bold and brightly hued tailored suit. Points to note: Style with a white shirt. Trouser length needs to be skimming the ankle – no longer, no shorter.

A Straw Fedora Hat

A traditional summer statement, the straw fedora boasts structure and offers a relaxed vibe. Opt for a complementary toned strip of colour around the base to tie your outfit together in a subtle manner.

A Pair of Round Framed Sunglasses

A firm favourite with the European man, full moon framed sunglasses are simply timeless and chic. Whether in tortoiseshell or metal, they exude a sophisticated aesthetic unlike any other frame shape.

A Double Breasted Jacket

A key iconic piece for every discerning gentleman’s wardrobe, the double breasted jacket is the creme de la creme of men’s tailoring. A rule to abide by: the top button should always be fastened and the bottom left open.

A Checked Pattern

Checked or plaid patterns are a daring concept and require a confident dresser to achieve style kudos. Team with minimal and neutral toned pieces for a well-balanced look. If you want to stand out, this is your game.

A Classic Leather Bag 

Pitti is just a stone’s throw away from our factory in Florence, therefore the show attracts a plethora of rich Italian leather bags both old and new. Sidenote: the deeper the patina, the more stylish the bag.
