    Pitti Uomo 103 in pictures

    Just thought I'd share some of my photos from Pitti Uomo earlier this month. Might be of interest to some of you, might not. Anyway, if you were there and feel like adding more photos: Go for it! I only took photos of people I know this time around. More below

    Pitti suit, super 140s. 52REU (FURTHER DROP!)

    I have to confess that I don't know who makes the suits for the brand Pitti, but they do know what they're doing (a fellow SF member informed me that the suit is made by Lardini). This is a very nice staple suit in mid gray with a micro herringbone pattern. The fabric is a Super 140s from...

    Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 4

    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...

    Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 3

    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...

    Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 2

    ... aka the day I seriously started questioning some of my life choices. Like, why for example I decide to try staying up, having drinks and socializing the night away, then go to Pitti the next morning to take photographs for you guys, do a write up, then head back to our place for the joint...

    Pitti Uomo 90 - Day 1

    Day one's over, and I feel like I could sleep for a week. Alas, for us the work is all ahead of us. We're setting up an offsite showroom this year, with @MILER Menswear, a great bunch of people with an unlimited amount of energy it seems. At the same time, as you can see, we're also trying to...

    EFV goes to Pitti Uomo 90

    Hey guys, yet again Erica and I are heading back to Pitti Uomo to cover it for all of you. This time I've brought along my business partner Lars as well. He is admittedly not a CM guy, but he´s no stranger to pulling on a 3 piece when called for. Lars "Lasse" and I just casually strolling...

    Pitti Uomo 89 - After thoughts

    The week after Pitti feels a bit like a long hangover to me, like the Monday that follows a real bender. I'm actually sort of an introvert, so being social to this extreme really takes its toll. It's a good sort of hangover though. Like when you've had such a great night that the memories will...

    Pitti Uomo 89 Day 4

    We woke up way too late on day 4. The night before was spent in the good company of old & new friends. Dinner and drinks. Maybe a few too many of the drinks. I hurried off to the fair while Erica got ready. I sat down in the press room at the fortezza to upload the pictures to yesterday´s post...

    Pitti Uomo 89 Day 3

    Day 1 and 2 passed by us so fast we barely noticed that day 3 was here. Pitti goes on for 4 days, but unofficially, day 3 is kind of the last day, since most people don't actaully stay for day 4. The buyers are usually done, the peacocks are moving on to Milan for the fashion week. The people...

    Pitti Uomo 89 Day 2

    First, let's start off with some pictures from the evening of day 1. were I probably had one too many drinks, because I woke up missing the lenscap to my camera (here's hoping I wont scratch up the lens): And then we're off to day 2. In short: Chaos. By my layman's estimation there were...

    Pitti Uomo 89 Day 1

    Ok, so after arriving 5 hours after schedule to Florence, we were a bit tired to say the least. Too late for dinner, so we headed straight to bed. Day one was chaotic, but we expected nothing less. We spent it meeting up with friends and taking pictures of people wearing stuff. That was pretty...

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 4

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 4 I sat upon the shore I think I'm getting sick. Jen may have jinxed me. I feel mucosal and sweaty and tired. It's a bad feeling. Perhaps I should have followed Fok and Jen's example and skipped today (Friday) altogether. I think I've explained...

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 3

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 3 HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME Day 3 is another slow day. It’s mobbed - Pitti, as we may have mentioned, is packed this year - and no matter what I do I seem to feel terrible. I meet Fok in the morning, after a pitiful attempt at eating breakfast, and we walk...

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 2

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 2 What shall we ever do? I hate everyone and everything when I wake up five and a half hours later. I loathe the idea of putting on shoes. I shower, and try to go back to sleep - impossible. Instead I get up and have breakfast, which is also...

    Pitti Uomo 87 in pictures

    I think the other SF guys (some of which we had the pleasure of dining with last night) can do a better write up of the event, so I'll just stick to posting pictures. Due to a slight hangover (may or may not have something to do with said dinner), and crappy wi-fi at the hotel, I'm posting this...

    Nothing stays fresh forever. Even twinkies go bad in some distant future between nuclear holocaust and world peace. Pitti Uomo is now entering its mid-forties. Men of that age have comb-overs to feign perpetual youth. Pitti has "themes." The theme never has anything to do with the show itself...

    The Pittilogues: Pitti Uomo 87, Day 1 What are the roots that grow out of this stony rubbish? - T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land We meet for breakfast downstairs. Our hotel is - I have to say - very nice, except that the multiple Italian women in the room next to me are making noise until past...

    PITTI UOMO 86: THE REPEATS Words and pictures by Jasper L This week’s episode is also a recap, so hopefully ratings won’t fall to drastically. Fall is here, but there are a couple of brands from the summer show (Pitti 86) that I wanted to remind you about; brands that I covered in a more...

    MISMO BAGS AT PITTI UOMO 85 AND 86: EMBRACE YOUR INNER DANE Words and pictures by Jasper L Over the last year, I’ve found that it’s even more difficult to write about accessories in a meaningful way than it is to discuss clothing. Often, how items such as bags feel in your hands is the most...
