Pitti Uomo is one of the largest menswear trade shows in the world. Taking place in Summer and Winter each year, new and well-renowned clothing brands from all over the world come together to further their respective brands in the menswear world. Held in Florence, Italy at the Fortezza da Basso, Pitti Uomo has become extremely popular, not only to menswear brands around the world, but also to "#menswear" guys everywhere.

For Beckett & Robb, Pitti Uomo continues to be a very important event for product development, and for meeting with current and new suppliers. In addition to busy days full of meetings, we were still able to get a fair amount of photography of us around the grounds and while walking to and from the Fortezza.

For this post, we'd like to recap our looks for each day of the event, highlighting what we wore and how it was made.
