At the end of June, the smartest men in Florence attended Pitti Uomo SS/2016, Italy’s big menswear trade fair. As usual, the street style scene, starring fashionistas and fashion entrepreneurs, is much more interesting than the show itself. Street Style is also a precise thermometer on menswear trends.
The world can argue where the best tailor makers come from, but no doubt Italians show it off better.
