The Pitti lookbook grows further…
Pitti Uomo 97 has come and gone, and with it the flurry of activity it brings in the menswear world. Many interesting, eclectic, bold and sometimes provocative outfits are seen each year.
If you haven’t read the first part of this post, make sure to read it first!
Now, to continue on – here’s some more that I’ve enjoyed:
(I’ve saved the best for last.)
This is the first time I’ve seen a teddy bear style coat that I haven’t minded. The well-composed attire underneath helps to soften its attention-grabbing appearance somewhat.
I noticed a recurring theme of Western inspired outfits gracing this recent Pitti. It was cool to see, and an interesting nod to my friend Blake’s prediction of hat fashions trending towards Western inspirations last year.
I kinda want one of those frilled jackets. It reminds me of Easy Rider.
Another recurring theme at Pitti was the presence of houndstooth and check patterns. This was a particularly resplendent example.
Another cool Western themed outfit, this one less bold and showy. I like the edge of sartorial flair that the chunky ribbed cardigan gives to what would otherwise be a fully working class influenced style.
I don’t need to make any comments on this one, it’s an obvious case of classic taste from Fabio Attanasio.
Will from The Dons Club notes and partakes in another notable Pitti trend of wearing a cricket sweater. This is a look that I’ve seen a lot recently, probably because I follow a fair few Ivy style wearers. I love it, and it’s great to see.
I gotta get myself a cricket sweater this year. It’s gotta happen.
The suit. It’s a gorgeous fabric, with lovely details including the triple patch pockets and lapelled SB waistcoat. I think I’d like it more if the jacket was longer and the gorge was a bit lower, but it’s still nice to look at regardless.
I find something aesthetically pleasing about the combination of a beret with elegant sartorial attire. I don’t think that style of hat would work on me, but I rather hope it will. Must try it some time…
The whole lot. I like everything about the choices here.
I like the way the cricket sweater plays with the texture of the corduroy suit to give the illusion of the whole outfit being a three piece suit. It’s a very relaxed approach to tailoring that looks quite elegant.
This is my favourite look from all of Pitti 97. It’s like if The Wild One was actually about an English gentleman motorcyclist.
I don’t usually like to copy outfits, but I’m certain that I’ll try my own take on this one come wintertime. I have the leather jacket, and everything else except perhaps a suitable scarf…
That’s all for this time!
There were some real crackers at Pitti this time around. I hope I’ll get to attend one day.
What was your favourite outfit of them all?
