Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 4

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
We landed in Stockholm today. Was supposed to be yesterday, but an airline strike chewed up our schedule and spit it out in a fully booked conference hotel outside Munich. A night in a hotel, with a decent breakfast waiting for us was quite welcome after what our last day in Florence put us through. We packed up what was left to pack up after our trunk show with Miler menswear, headed out for breakfast (the first breakfast of the week where we actually had the time to sit down) and then off to Fortezza Da Basso to post a thread for you guys and to get a quick visit to a few of the booths. I ran into some of the people we have gotten to know during our reoccurring visits to Florence when arriving at the Fortezza. It was nice, good vibes all over and great weather, though everyone seemed slightly worn out from a 24/7 work week. Everything's really winding down at Pitti, the exhibitors are packing up and look like they´re anxiously waiting to move on.

We headed down into the main pavilion, said hi to a few friends before noticing time had passed much faster than we had realized. With our friend Charley (@Mr. Claymore) accompanying us, trying to get hold of a cab on his phone, we rushed past @unbelragazzo sitting at a café looking very relaxed in what I guess is a knitted linen shirt from Inis Meain. I'm usually a time pessimist, I want to be at the airport 2 hours before my flight leaves et c. I am not relaxed. We move fast through the narrow streets of historical Florence. We get to our apartment, get our bags to the taxi, who decides we have too many bags half way through packing them into the car and then starts unpacking everything to the side walk before just heading off. Charley has already spotted another cab for us though and we're off.

At the airport we realize there's a 1 hour line (at least) ahead of us to the check in, and that we'll surely miss our plane. I'm not gonna bore you with details, I think our Instagram posts from the airport says more than words. A guy we meet standing in line tells us that the strike may have something to do with the fact that Italy's playing a football match the same day.

My idea was to post all of this yesterday, but when we arrived in Munich, realizing we had missed our connecting flight and getting set up with a hotel (thanks for being such archetypal Germans and handling everything super efficiently Lufthansa!) all I could do was watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones and fall into a comatose sleep.

Pictures then. Besides the pictures from day 4, I have also included some unpublished pictures from day 3 of Pitti and the event by Plaza Uomo.

Man, @Mr. Claymore really knows how to roll in the 3-piece. Looking good!

That's a kind of weird and interesting suit that Fabio A is wearing. Anyone know any details on it? I'm guessing it's from somebody near Milan?

just came here to post that. That dude looks pretty rad. I have also had the pleasure of seeing @Mr. Claymore in person on a few occasions, and usually think he looks very cool too.

Even in the heat it's the only way I go. I think I only have two or three suits that aren't three piece.

Thank you. I know I'm a little over the top for the forum but I've been dressing this way for most of my life. I believe all of the suits pictured were made up for me about 15 years ago.

I thought it was from one of the many Spanish tailors he's tried out recently.

Ah, that makes more sense. I didn't know he had tried out anyone in Spain.

Yeah, he went on a trip there and tried out a bunch.

What do you see that suggests that the suit is Spanish? I haven't seen much Spanish tailoring.

The shape and height of the gorge reminds me of @RDiaz 's coats. Also the chest and shoulders seem sturdier than most Italian coats, even outside Naples.

I don't know how many of you have seen this, but I think it is brilliant:

I saw it. Thought they did a great job. It's the natural progression from the Mr. Porter one last year. I might say I liked that one better but it could be because Eric's and my legs are in it for a brief moment.

Hrrm, before Mr Porter released theirs, I posted this on Styleforums Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/4HGVV9rEDz/

Maybe not as witty, but I claim the idea as mine biggrin.gif

Thanks to @EFV for all of the awesome coverage.  And having done this for a few years, without also holding a trunk show, I can only imagine Erik's incredibly constitution.  And in the heat of summer?  That's performance under duress.
