Italians Do It Better
Pitti Uomo celebrated 90 years this season and has become undoubtedly the most famous and precious quintessential Italian event for menswear. Pitti defines the ultimate Italian gentleman as tailored suits, cuffed pants, hats and tassel loafers are in full swing around the fair. During my time there, the streets of Florence become the most graphic backdrops for my outfits and compliment them perfectly. For this story, I’m mastering a fresh dandy street style look. A waistcoat in textured cotton, a rolled-sleeve blue shirt whipping out with a pair of white colour jeans looked like the perfect Sunday morning look for a stroll around town. Honestly a truly unusual look on me yet I somehow owned it.
