Pitti Uomo 92


June 22, 2017

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.

The shirt collar is our semi-spread long point collar.

You already own a navy or gray suit, or maybe even both; so what’s next? Let's talk about adding a brown suit to your collection. Though we understand the hesitancy in breaking away from the basics, we can assure you that a brown suit will do just as much work as any grey suit or a navy suit currently in your wardrobe. A brown suit is a versatile year round garment that transitions perfectly from summer to fall, winter to spring.

Most guys want to know how to wear a blue suit with brown shoes, but we’re here to demonstrate that black shoes, though often overlooked, are nonetheless a perfect pairing with a blue suit.
