Pitti uomo’s arrived at its 92nd edition..This year the heat is really incredible and it’s so hard to stand out. Florence has always its charme above all with this temperature where everything looks so beautiful. As I often do, during those three days, I try to wear three different outfit just to avoid to fall in the usual routine of the suit like other people. So for the first day I didn’t wear the jacket and I created a chromatic homogeneity between trousers and the polo-shirt. Well, we can go to pay more attention on this last piece: his is a polo shirt produced by the masters Camilias of the Santillo family based in my Calabria; tfhe name is inspired by an old Italian tennis icon Nicola Pietrangeli, recognized by everyone as a real dandy. Versatile, practical, elegant, the Pietrangeli Polo shirt can be worn with canvas bermuda in Portofino or with a freshly seersukeer jacket in a prestigious club house in Montecarlo. Handmade barrel pocket, soft collar, according to the traditional method; pure Australian mother-of-pearl buttons hand-woven with lily stitching. Particularly important is the hanging of the sleeve, the seam of the sleeve and the side are moved, united, this is because the bust is first sewn and then inserted the hand-sewn sleeve. This operation is performed only in tailoring by skilled hands. Finally, ironing and bending, even them hand-made.
