Pitti Uomo 93Picture: Pitti Uomo

Welcoming the new year, Pitti Uomo 93 is back in a full swing. The streets of Florence are once again filled with classy men decked in coats, suits, scarves and hats to visit the bi-annual trade show that serves as the premier international event for menswear with the latest season launches.

As we feast our eyes and tickle our senses scouring through the vibrant sights and sounds of Pitti 93, it inspired us to bring you 3 great looks spotted in typical Pitti fashion, where the streets serve as everyone’s personal runway.

 

The Traffic Stopper

What we love: Pops of colour that stop you in your tracks, not in shock but in wonder of how you’re drawn to his every antic.

What’s the story: Dick Tracy given the Burberry treatment of impeccable British tailoring and colour pairing.
