Don’t trust fashion experts
Fresh photos from Pitti Uomo 92.
I notice that fashion experts, who participated in the event, can spot numerous trends. Honestly, I don’t always find their judgement trustworthy. You have to look at more seasons to find a development, I would say. Shoes like suede loafers and trainers, trousers with turn-ups and skimpy length, and fabrics like seersucker, linen Fresco and Solaro have been around, since I was at Pitti Uomo for the first time six years ago. I cannot remember not to have seen accessories such as bracelets and neckerchiefs.
And, that is pretty much the point about Pitti Uomo. It is a festival of classic clothing. Although new designs, fabrics and items appear at each fair, they appear within the the boundaries of classic menswear, that is, the lounge suit.

Loved most of the looks. But the continued fascination with wearing a suit with no socks? Wake me when it’s all over.
Yes, the “no socks” look is awful.
P?S Is Butler his first name or last name? It is always amusing to see him crop up in your posts. He gets around!
Butler is his nom de plume referring to an education of his as butler from the London school
Mr. Kamoshito looks so natural the way he dresses, doesn’t he? Patrik Löf’s blazer suits him well too, although we do not see its length. You do not happen to have any details on it, do you?
I am also impressed by Mr. Roetzels seersucker suit, it will certainly get a lot of wear with those many lakes and high summer temperatures around Berlin 🙂
Again som fine pictures, thank you Torsten.
