Dudes Fashion Week: 12 Rules of Pitti Uomo

By

15th Jan, 2013

It’s men’s fashion week again and over in Florence, the Pitti Uomo parade of dapperly dressed dudes is out in full force. Worlds away from your typical street style photography of other fashion weeks, the men of Pitti Uomo have their own rules…

Don’t bother coming unless your fabrics look like they were woven by the magical horns of a thousand tiny unicorns.
