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.
Jason's sport coat is constructed with a full canvas, soft shoulder, and half lining. His trousers are designed with a 5 cm (2 in) tall cuff and a flat front.
Jesse designed this MTM linen suit with full canvas construction, and a half lining. In keeping the jacket casual and relaxed, the shoulders were kept soft without shoulder padding. The trousers feature a tall 5 cm (2 in) cuff and are flat front.
Jason constructed this jacket with our most common sport coat construction- full canvas, soft shoulder, and half lining. The trousers feature a flat front and tall cuffs.
Keeping with the typical practice of making cotton suits comfortable and relaxed, his suit jacket is constructed with a full canvas, soft shoulder, and half lining. The trousers are flat front and feature our typical 5 cm tall cuff. His white shirt was designed with our tall spread collar.
Derek opted for a not generally recommended commission with this open weave suit. Different from our standard jacket pattern, this open weave jacket features more open and rounded front quarters and a spalla camicia shoulder. Trouser includes 5 cm tall cuffs (notice a trend yet?). The shirt collar is our semi-spread long point collar.
Jesse's suit jacket is constructed with a full canvas and half lining. The shoulders are cut wide and feature a light pad for a more masculine stance and fuller sleeve head. Trousers are flat front and feature a tall cuff. The shirt features a tall semi-spread long point collar.
With another successful trip to Pitti Uomo behind us we're already getting ready for the next show this upcoming January.

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. The important thing to remember is not all blue suits should be worn with black shoes. If the blue suit color is too light or vibrant then the suit overall skews more casual..
