Now that Pitti is officially over, we have had a ton of free time to kick it around Firenze. Besides an insane amount of shopping, we also took in the sights. Pardon my inept attempt at capturing the Florentine cityscape—I’m no Justin Chung, but I do believe it would be pretty selfish of me to leave this on my G10. Cheers.
Pitti Uomo Day 4: Nick Wooster and Nice Try, Bro.
Zeph mediating a conversation about street style between Nick Wooster and Nice Try, Bro. Nick gave me the 50 Cent Challenge, basically saying that if I get more reblogs and street style photos than him that he would retire from the game. Of course, I was in sportswear on Day 4, so Wooster was feeling confident.
In all seriousness, though: what a dope dude.
Sean Hotchkiss of the GQ Eye has nothing to worry about rolling around Pitti with his gloves hanging out of his backpack. People in $3000 suits do not jack $200 gloves. COME ON!
Juan from Monitaly will also be at (capsule) New York this week. He’s an LA cat that’s never been out to New York before, so we’ll probably get him drunk and shit.
In any event, you’d be hard pressed to not hear someone mutter the words “Monitaly” this week at Pitti. Some of the most interesting collars I’ve ever seen—buttons on buttons on buttons.
Yuketen cordovan longwings and various boots—if you’ll be at (capsule) New York this Monday, pop into the booth and give a holler to Ryan. Not only is he really, really knowledgeable, he’s one hell of a cheerful, interesting dude, too.
Second hand smoke kills.
