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.

Day 1

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

How to Wear Suede Loafers

To the average guy, a suede tassel loafer isn't considered a "must-have" shoe. To most, it appears difficult to wear, or not versatile enough to buy unless they already have several oxfords and derbies. We on the B&R team feel differently and felt it was necessary to showcase how our Suede Verona Tassel Loafer can be worn casually to dressed up.

Below we've included 4 different degrees of formality to showcase how versatile suede loafers can be when worn right.

We love our products. Our focus on product development is at the very heart of who we are and what we do. It's for this reason that we've dedicated so much of our time to produce a number of our own product lines, including our own line of shoes, outerwear, and accessories.

When it came time for us to consider adding eyewear to our product mix, we decided to defer to another brand for their expertise.
