Pitti Uomo, where real men wear real clothes. Year after year, season after season sartorial gents from around the globe descend up Florence in one of the biggest and best displays of menswear the world has ever seen…and to partake in Italy’s biggest menswear trade fair. “The streets are blanketed with beards and impeccably tailored suits. The Pitti menswear scene quickly breaks down like a high-school cafeteria: There are the menswear mainstays, like Milanese boutique owner Lino Ieluzzi, the rugged types with topknots and shearling jackets, and the eccentrics, like one particularly colorful man wearing mismatched shoes.” – The Cut
Here are some of our favourite people and styles from this past weeks Pitti Uomo 87.

Working Cuff (n,): a cuffs that has buttons that can unbutton allowing one to roll up the jacket sleeves.
Historically, there was a time when men wore suits and sport coats everyday and for all occasions, even when delivering babies. This is where the popular term “surgeon’s cuffs” originated from as many surgeons, rightfully so, need the ability to roll up their sleeves while working on various patients. Now granted you probably won’t be rolling up your suit sleeves to deliver a baby anytime soon, but nevertheless this is a detail you’ll want to consider when buying your next suit or jacket.
It is much easier to machine sew the button holes closed, rather than take the time to hand sew up to 4 button holes on the cuff which is why a working cuff is a hallmark detail associated with a custom or high quality suits.
It’s official, athletes are the new red carpet risk-takers- proven beyond a doubt by the 2014 ESPYs. For those unfamiliar with the ESPYs (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly), the award show is presented by the American cable television network ESPN and honours individual and team athletic achievement, as well as other sports-related performance. This year’s show which aired on July 17th, was hosted by Toronto’s very own Drake and proved a shining example of how male athletes have been stepping up their sartorial game of late. While there were plenty of notable female athletes in attendance, this year, the men undoubtably stole the show.
Here are our picks for the Best Dressed Men at the 2014 ESPY Awards.
