Removable chains: street style

I probably need not preach the value of accessories in raising up an outfit. A simple tee and pair of jeans isn’t really an outfit until you accessorise, so the question is more what to add. A detachable collar is one of the year’s most versatile accessories, the kind of thing you can add to almost any top or dress to give it an instant…

Casually revealing

There was a time when a long skirt, cut with high slits that reveal the legs with every step, would have been reserved purely for after nightfall. But that’s no longer the case. No better an example than in the heat of Florence at Pitti Uomo, where a slit skirt and casual loafers or lace-ups were regularly seen together, a partnership of both comfort and…

Blazing red: Pitti men’s street style

When last we caught up with Nick Schaerf he was tweeded up for the Melbourne Tweed Ride. Last week we bumped into him on the other side of the world, in an appropriately contrasting look. Decked out in a red double breasted suit, and all the accessory trimmings, Nick held his own against both the Florentine summer and the mass of stylishly colourful Pitti men.

This is your new favourite… hat

The slow emerging trend of incorporating street wear into a suit outfit is gaining traction, evidenced by Pitti-goers fondness for pairing items like running shoes and bandanas with linen blazers and tailored pants. The baseball cap is a natural evolution of that, and this might be the one we start with.

Turban: Pitti men’s street style

A pair of shorts, t-shirt and a blazer may not be the most stand-out of outfits on a normal day. But with the addition of an on-trend pair of sunglasses and a scarf wrapped around as a turban, there’s a new level of interest to be reached. Not to mention a great way of keeping the hot Florentine sun from burning one’s head.

Day 3: Pitti men’s street style (gallery)

Hey everyone at Pitti Uomo? Stop looking so good and making everybody else feel bad and insecure about their entire wardrobe. But they won’t stop. They just keep on coming with their unlined cotton jackets, white denim, raw silk ties and neckerchiefs. This gallery contains all of that and much more.

Accessories Americano: Pitti men’s street style

It’s good to see the Americana influence on menswear hasn’t died down, even in the midst of Florence, Tuscany. Take away the accessories from this Pitti Uomo street style look, and you have a pretty conventional outfit. It’s smart dressing and you guys should pay attention. Also, take notice of the floral neckerchief. If all goes according to plan, by the masters of Pitti, you’ll…

Swimwear for men: Robinson Les Bains at Pitti

Orlebar Brown may have the understated, English side of the mens swimming trunk market covered, but for something with a little bit of European flair it’s worth checking out the latest from Robinson Les Bains. Christophe Vérot – an ex-water polo player – started up the brand in 2007 after experiencing that frustration we all feel from time to time: the kind where you search…

The Hacket Pavilion: Live from Pitti

Fresh from their showing in London last week, Hackett London may just well have set up the most impressive stall at Pitti. Well, it’s so much as as a stall, as it’s an entire pavilion with a front porch to sip some much needed iced tea and an old (probably Renaissance) building housing some wonderfully British mannequins.

Clashing prints: Pitti men’s street style

The dapper men of Pitti tend towards either the ultra-sharp, the casually understated, or the boldly flamboyant. The latter male is a creature that comes in many forms – often he’s decked out in bright colours, or quirky accessories – but he can also be seen fearlessly sporting clashing prints. Checks, plaids, gingham, polka dots… to this confident breed of male, no pattern is off-limits.
