Pitti Uomo 2016 was the 90th gathering this June. The biannual trade show fair that happens in Italy is the largest gathering of the most stylish men. This high-fashion affair features the world’s top menswear brands and sartorial experts. Among these attendees are the dandiest of them all known as the “Peacocks”.
Our made-to-measure tailor Konstantine paid Italy a visit this year and a first looking on what’s happening on the streets of Pitti Uomo 2016.
Colour suits are one of their favourite ways to stand out of the crowd
A camo blazer? Count us in.
Striped vest and trousers, micro-spotted shirt AND a coloured blazer
Blues, blues, blues
Tassel loafers were a popular choice of footwear
Cotton candy pinks as sweet as the outfits
Double monk-strap on loafers = the ultimate summer shoe
Our favourite: women rocking menswear trends

Regulars at GS events know that our dos bring out the most dapper men in the city. Last week’s 19 Crimes launch event took style to bold new heights. After scouring album after album, we’ve picked our favourite and most compelling looks of the evening. Our IT list isn’t about the most daring or bizarre, it’s about those with the confidence and cool to be themselves, celebrate their true aesthetic and who possess a unique understanding of what works for their body and build.
Here’s our tribute to the attendees who set the bar high at the GS 19 Crimes event.
With the growing popularity of Without Prejudice in our stores, we only thought it fitting to bring in the man himself, Mr. Jason Gerrard, CEO of Without Prejudice to give you a little history on the brand and why it’s one of our fan favourites. As Jason mentions in the video, some of the best things about WP are things you can’t see like the half-canvas lining and sweat guards. It’s pretty much all the “stuff” hiding between the garment you see and it’s colourful lining. However, if what you can see is indication of the level of detail and craftsmanship they offer then you can be quite confident that you’re truly getting a quality product at an unbeatable price.
WP offers that tailored slim-straight look ideal for that athletic guy who’s got that fuller chest, arm and legs. It’s also the only suit brand we carry that offers a Drop 8, which essentially refers to the jacket to pant ratio. Most brands offer a drop 6 or 7 which means that if you’re a 42 jacket you’ll get a 35/36 pant. With a Drop 8 you’d get a 42 jacket with a 34′ pant, giving you that perfect inverted “V” look.

Hook and Furl is a Made in Canada brand that produces unique hand-made lapel pins designed to enhance your look with an extra flash of colour, a hint of whimsy, and a lot of charm and sophistication. When Mark designed the first prototypes for his own use, his goal was to create something that simply added that finishing touch to his outfit. In doing so he inadvertently, as most great startup developed a product that offers a great alternative to the traditional lapel pin we’re so used to seeing.
Hook and Furl pins are all hand-made and fashioned with a wide range of colourful feathers, a wooden button, and bright threads making each piece unique and different form the last. With a price point of only $45/each they are extremely affordable and make for a great holiday stocking stuffer for any discerning gentlemen on your list.
