White felt right – again, Day 3 of the Florentine men’s style affair that is, Pitti Uomo. Following on from yesterday’s display – awash with the white trouser, and royal reds and blue, the sartorialists paraded the pure shade, pairing the crisp and clean with rustic, heritage jackets, some richly woven in navy and orange like a tapestry.
Another trend to emerge was neon – tangerine jackets paired with light trousers or worn as fluro two-piece suit, the styling exceptional – quietening the noise with tan loafers and matching leather folio. And a white fedora (this is Pitti, hey).
Finally, denim was the other major look: the obvious via selvedge jean jackets that sat boxy cropped or – as the Japanese love to do – the waist coat, layered over a chambray denim shirt for a double-denim win. Retro style and clean white sneakers reigned today, and no socks – for a fuss-free finish. And, they make for perfect cycling shoes.
