Pitti Uomo 82 Picture Gallery

The other day, I discussed a few outfits of Pitti Uomo 82 and today I want to continue with some further observations.
Apart from the trends mentioned before, there seem to be additional two trends right now: Suits with Shorts and Bags for Men.

Suits / Jackets with Shorts

While I can totally understand that wearing a suit at 104 °F (40°C ) is far from being the most comfortable thing to wear, I do not really see the benefit of simply shortening one’s pants while the jacket, shirt and tie remain unchanged from a traditional outfit. On the flip side, I understand that fashion follows trends, but my classic leanings pull me towards more traditional hot weather combinations. If it is really too warm to wear a suit, go for a casual outfit and skip the fusion suit altogether. It will look more natural and you should sweat less. If that is too casual, wear a full suit or a classic combination by all means. For details, refer to our summer suit guide, where we explain all you need to know about suits for hot summer days.

Bags for Men

Since Pitti is a tradeshow, it is understandable that men bring their document cases. But this year, it seems like bags for men are not just functional but a distinct accessory. Personally, I like bring my leather briefcase or my leather camera case, but generally, I do not use tote bags or duffel bags unless I go to the beach or travel. Do you wear bags? If so, which ones?

Strong Color

You can clearly see lots of color at Pitti Uomo, and while I’ve observed this before, I still enjoy the unabashed use of color. While the classic shades of navy and blue are also worn – often with stripes, windowpanes or textures – custom made pieces in vibrantly colored fabrics are absolutely the norm. You can find anything from bright red and teal blazers in single and double breasted versions, as well as more muted colors, which are then combined with strong ties or dominant trousers.
One of my favorite color combinations is green with charcoal grey. Of course, it would also work in the inverse, but I like this version, although I am generally not a friend of twin looks. They both seem stylish enough to make different choices!

Conclusion

Overall, you can tell that everybody wants to stand out and be unique with the creation of their outfit. It’s a pleasure to see such an interesting array of combinations in one place! For the most part, they succeed, even though the result – rugged, nonchalant, trendy, etc – is not longer elegant from a classic perspective. That aside, I think the outfits provide a lot of inspiration and food for thought. Most outfits would look better with fewer accessories, in my opinion, though were else can you find a turquoise blazer with a 4×1 Kent Fasson? Maybe he’s inspired you to get your next blazer in a more muted color in that button configuration or you will be a bit more daring with your color choices for your next single breasted sportscoat. If that’s the case, Pitti Uomo pictures here served their purpose, par excellence.
What was your favorite outfit here and why?

    Unfortunately, I firstly must say that some of the pictures seem not to be loaded so I do not judge out of the full range of impressions this article is suppossed to give us.
    However, as far as I can tell I must agree that those two gentlemen with grey coats and green pants look excellent. Only the double-breasted coat should have a little larger lapels.
    The beige coat with a belted back does not look quite felicitous, at least from the angle of that picture. It looks like a rubber-band being sewn on at home.
    My favourite of all these is nontheless the last one. I usually don’t like jeans and don’t even own any, but in combination with that brown blazer it is a great looking, discreet ensemble that may be worn at several occasions outside of a fashion trade fair. This is why it is quite preferable to the turquoise blazer, which definitely looks great however.
    Thanks a lot anyway for this article and these pleasurable impressions.
