Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 3

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
Ok, so now EVERYONE points out how completely beat I look. They're not wrong. The candles not burning in both ends, it's burnt down. Right now I couldn't be happier though. We've had a great week, meeting a lot of people that I now feel happy to call real friends. I get to talk about positioning of side adjusters, directions of pleats, curvature of barchetta pockets et c, you get the picture. It's in many ways a menswear nerd paradise. And then there's the free booze of course, and over priced booze - served by the super rude waiters at the Caffe Gilli.

Yesterday was spent visiting the fair just long enough to post the Pitti thread here on SF, then going into central Florence to visit thre shoemaker Allan Baudoin's trunk show. It was a very nice get together with friends and shoe geeks from all over the world. We took a couple of mini pizza slices and a coctail as lunch and then headed back to our own apartment for trunk show day 2. Day 1 was a raging success vistor wise, on day 2 we mostly had @unbelragazzo & @gdl203 and a couple of non-SF friends hanging out, drinking whiskey and eating chocolates.

In the end we actually made our first wholesale outside of Sweden. This had to be celebrated, so Charley (@Mr. Claymore) took us to his favourite restaurant, which turned out to be a hole in the wall serving pizzas. He was not wrong, the pizzas were great.

After this we headed to Plaza Uomo's party at an old palazzo in central Florence, and then, of course rounded it all off at Gillis (a place I'm properly fed up with by now).

Trend spottings: Belgian loafers are still popular, as are safari jackets, scarfs, work wear and 70s style.

Ok, now I'm signing out from Florence, but I'll be posting a new thread with a lot of unpublished pictures as soon as I'm back home.

These people have put me decidedly in the anti-Pitti camp.

Thank you very much for the reports, Erik. 

 

It's good to hear that your trunk show went well, and congratulations on getting a new wholesale account.

I suspect that this chap wanted to look different - and boy, did he succeed in that respect.

It might be indicative of social deviancy, but I'd like to see that with the jacket on...

Nice. Wonder where he buys his clothes?

You caught these two off guard and didn't know you were taking their picture, right? :P shog[1].gif
There are many nice outfits to get some inspiration from. People are more conservative in this edition, aren't they? Seems that way to me.
Thanks again for all the photographs.

Posting/taking these pics is a lot of work, so many thanks to EFV.



This guy has a good look but he sprezzed it out too much rather than keeping it low key. The edge stitching on the jacket is so tight its causing all that puckering in the lapels/pockets and why is he showing off that his tailor messed up his pants waistband/fly?

post #10 of 70

Because he doesn't know they are messed up.

Anyone check out VISVIM's show?

This. These are people I actually consider friends. I don't think anyone of them is bothered by salty comments though. Feels kinda random choosing them out of all the people we posted though.

So inspired to see Eric Glennie make it to Pitti Uomo.

Someone had to get chosen. Personal friends or no, everyone's clothes are up for judgment. Don't take it the wrong way.
