    PITTI UOMO 86: THE REPEATS

    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

    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...

    HESCHUNG SHOEMAKERS AT PITTI UOMO 86

    HESCHUNG SHOEMAKERS AT PITTI UOMO 86 (AND 85) Words and pictures by Jasper L Heschung isn’t exactly an unknown quantity. They’re an old, respected brand, they’ve done collaborations with forum darling Yuketen, and they’re carried by forum affiliate (and favorite) No Man Walks Alone. That’s...

    Styleforum Interviews Nick Wooster at Pitti Uomo 86

    @Synthese and I were lucky enough to get a few minutes of Nick Wooster's time at Pitti 86 to talk about his new collaboration with Lardini, his personal style, and being famous on the Internet. David Isle: First of all, thank you for following me on Twitter. I don’t know if you know this, but...

    JUN HASHIMOTO AT PITTI 86

    JUN HASHIMOTO 2.0 AT PITTI 86: YOU CAN (NOT) UNDERSTAND Or, If Only I Could Use My Camera Words and pictures by Jasper L Part of what, in my mind, makes Jun Hashimoto such an interesting character is that - relative to most of the people at Pitti - he’s an obvious pragmatist. Well, he...

    Guest Nation: South Korea at Pitti Uomo 86.

    CONCEPT KOREA AT PITTI UOMO 86 Words and pictures by Jasper L The South Koreans had their own pavilion at this summer’s trade-show, and although a couple of designers spilled into the main concourse, the guest designers were largely concentrated into a space that was maybe a thousand feet...

    Interview with Luca Rubinacci, Part 3

    The grand finale of my interview with Luca Rubinacci. Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. David Isle: Even with all these collaborations, you want to remain an independent company and continue to do bespoke? Luca Rubinacci: Of course, always. Because we have tailors. The story of tailors...

    BARENA VENEZIA AT PITTI UOMO 86

    BARENA VENEZIA: WATER AND EARTH Words and pictures by Jasper L The Night Battles, Italian historian Carlo Ginzburg’s 1966 exploration of 16th and 17th-century Italian witch trials, deals with the benandanti (“the good walkers”) - the local visionary harvest-cults of the Northeastern...

    Interview with Antonio Ciongoli of Eidos Napoli, Part 3

    The finale of my conversation with Antonio. If you haven't already, read part 1 and part 2. David Isle: What do you think is unique about Eidos? Antonio Ciongoli: In the wholesale market, there's really nothing that's made like this and fits like this at this price. To be able to get garments...

    Interview with Antonio Ciongoli of Eidos Napoli, Part 2

    Continuing from Part 1: DI: What's your background and how did you get to where you are now? Where did your interest in design begin? AC: I did my senior year of high school in Rome. And that's when I really discovered art history. Then when I got to college, I double majored in art history...

    Pitti Uomo 86, The End Days

    I expected there would be a shift in the roster of exhibitors (exhibitionists?) from the Fall/Winter to the Spring/Summer version of Pitti. It turns out there really isn't. The reason, Greg told me later, is that you have to keep coming back every Pitti, regardless of the season, if you want to...

    All you need to know about Pitti Uomo -- @dirnelli adds to SF's coverage of Pitti 86

    10 THINGS YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT PITTI UOMO BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK I recently travelled to Florence to cover Pitti Uomo for Europe's leading style blog www.parisiangentleman.co.uk. There, I had the pleasure of hanging out with some notable SF'ers such as @SeamasterLux , @gdl203 ...

    Pitti Uomo 86, Day 2

    As you might expect, Day 2 actually occurred the day after Day 1. It has just taken me until now to write about it. I woke up to a text message from Jasper telling me he thinks the Wooster/Lardini press conference we're supposed to go to is in the central pavilion. It's not. Here is our...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 4: HOMEWARD BOUND

    Day 4: Homeward Bound “Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.” *** No one gets blogged on Friday. Only the lifers are still here; the die hard sprezzatourists. There's a tiredness to the chatting and smoking that I haven seen before...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 3: SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS

    Day 3: Scylla and Charybdis “Inside it Scylla sits and yelps with a voice that you might take to be that of a young hound, but in truth she is a dreadful monster and no one - not even a god - could face her without being terror-struck… No ship ever yet got past her without losing some men, for...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 2: THE LAND OF THE LOTUS EATERS

    Day 2: The Land of the Lotus Eaters Now whosoever of them did eat the honey-sweet fruit of the lotus, had no more wish to bring tidings nor to come back, but there he chose to abide with the lotus-eating men, ever feeding on the lotus and forgetful of his homeward way. *** Part 1 Via...

    Pitti Uomo 86: Day 1, Evening edition

    Too tired right now to get on with a full journal entry, but at least let me defend myself against @Synthese's claim that my professed dislike of strip clubs is disingenuous. First of all, I think I've only been maybe five times in my life. If I actually liked them I'd probably go more often...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 1. INTERLUDE: DINNER

    INTERLUDE I am not sure that Tuesday’s dinner, which was a relatively staid affair with David and Greg, is really worth describing. There were no real shenanigans; no wanton drunkenness, and, since Patrik isn’t here, no towering, uncontrollable vikings. I will say that I feel that my stacks...

    Pitti Uomo 86 - Picture thread - PIC HEAVY!!

    Hi guys! Since I'm in Florence and have attended day 1 & 2 of the Pitti Uomo fair, @LA Guy asked me if I wanted to post a thread with some pictures. Of course I want to share some pictures with my fellow SF:ers. Since I'm actually here on vacation as well, I'll do right by my better half and...

    Pitti Uomo 86: Save the Socks!

    As a reminder, don't forget to subscribe to the Styleforum pitti86 label if you want to get all the coverage from me and @Synthese. I began my first day of Pitti like a normal person, walking around Florence like the tens of thousands of other non-#menswear American tourists that come here...
