Pitti Uomo 85 Street Style Report – Part 2

We’re back with Day 2 from Pitti Uomo in Florence, where everyone has taken it up a notch, opting for some louder and brighter looks. Sportswear was a clear favorite with many guys donning sneakers, including some fresh collaborations, and more relaxed bomber and varsity jacket silhouettes.

Ahead of a special issue this weekend packed full of suggestions for things to see and do, this spot from BBH London warns of the perils of trying to do EVERYTHING they recommend yourself.
