If you love mens fashion then you know about Pitti Uomo. For those of you unfamiliar, Pitti Uomo is a mens clothing trade show that takes place 2 times a year in the heart of Florence Italy. It’s where hundreds of brands showcase their newest collections and introduce new trends into the menswear world. During the span of four days the city is filled with menswear bloggers, influencers, and shop owners, all of whom are dressed head to toe in their most stylish outfits. For those of us not lucky enough to visit, we can still enjoy and gain inspiration through the thousands of street style photos. I’ve seen many of them and chosen what I think to be the biggest mens trends that were seen during Pitti Uomo earlier this year. Instead of showing images from other men like many other blogs do I've decided to put the trends into action and wear them in my own way. The first one is all about wearing heavy fabrics. That includes corduroy, tweed, herringbone, and heavy wools as well as thickly woven sweaters such as cable knit and donegal.  As you can see here I’m wearing a very thick wool blazer over an equally thick herringbone vest. To add even more texture and bulk I’m wearing one of my favorite knit ties. Winter may be soon coming to an end but it looks like the cold weather is here to stay so keep those heavy fabrics in rotation. Stayed tuned for my next post featuring another trend spotted on 
the streets of Florence. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

  3. yes, I'm familiar with Pitti Uomo:)...I never visited it myself, but I enjoy seeing all those street style photos of it online. Never say never though, I live relatively close to Italy.

    This outfit is pure elegance! I love how you used the heavy fabrics, making it look so very effortless. There is a British chic vibe here that I really like. Maybe that thick wool blazer?...and how perfect is that vest.

  19. I just found your blog and I must admit that I am already a huge fan. It's refreshing to see a great male fashion blogger and I've always in the opinion that the blogsphere needs more male bloggers.
    You look very sharp and dapper here, great outfit.
