If you’re not familiar with Pitti Uomo, it’s time to get acquainted. The bi-annual menswear showcase hosted in Florence is attended by everyone who's anyone in the menswear world and pretty much reinforces all those clichés you’ve heard about Italian men’s style.
Namely, that’s the fact that Italian men know their tailoring – thankfully there’s not a shapeless pinstripe suit in sight. They're also certainly not averse to linen or going without socks when wearing shoes. In short, it’s your template for wearing suiting in the summer.
How can you wear even if you’re not sauntering down the streets of Florence? Try mixing light and dark tailoring and try a T-shirt instead of a shirt to tone the look down.
