Florence, Italy: Pitti Uomo Trade Show

What an exhausting but exciting two days at Pitti Uomo! As the world’s largest menswear trade show, it showcases upcoming trends in apparel, outerwear, footwear, accessories, and even socks. The best part of being here, however, is getting to see the amazing street style. 

When it comes to European men, they are known for their rather sophisticated style. It’s definitely a nice change of scenery from American men who, let’s be honest, can step up their fashion game a little. As I walked around the massive trade show held at Pitti Immagine, some of the major menswear trends I noticed for Spring/Summer 2016 were cuffed pants, printed button-up collared shirts, fedoras, blazers, and much, much more.

I wish I could show you some examples, but photography within the trade show area is frowned upon. I did, however, snap some photos of the very well dressed attendees, who embodied the upcoming trends. At first I felt a bit like a stalker taking photos of strangers, but they were totally digging the attention - some even posed! 


As you can see, it’s basically a gathering of attractive men dressed to the nines. So. Much. Eye candy. And I did not mind one bit!
