Sandwiched between London Collection: Mens and Men's Milan Fashion Week is Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual trade show in Florence, Italy, where editors, retailers and exhibitors gather in droves for face-to-face time with brands and buyers. But it's those dapperly dressed gents outside the shows that always seem to capture our attention more than anything.
So pay attention, guys: If the trends at Pitti Uomo are any indication of what's soon to find popularity IRL, get ready to stock up on blue suits, patterned trousers and some mustache wax. Oh -- and ditch the socks: Bare ankles are che figata right now.
