Pitti Uomo 86: a Firenze of fashion (pun intended). For a week the streets of Florence were inundated with the elite of the fashion world and people streamed in from around the globe to attend the biggest menswear trade show in the entire universe. I arrived at the gate of Firenze Fiera and the camera flew to my face without hesitation. Suit followed suit, brogue followed brogue, and within minutes I had forgotten that I had to actually collect my pass and go inside.
Five days and thousands of photos later, my poor computer began to teeter on the edge of combustion and, while not making a full recovery (I doubt he ever will), managed to stay with me long enough to get these photos out there.
Here are a few of the more detail orientated shots that I took, showing some of the trends that presented themselves throughout the week. I'm always onboard with a pocket square; I'll never say no to a bow tie or a well fitted blazer; I may have some comments to make on the frequency of inflatable trainers but I'll keep those to myself for now.
