Pitti Uomo 91: day two

Day two at Pitti Uomo means business. It’s traditionally the busiest day of the week as all the buyers have jetted into town by now and the hallways of the Fortezza da Basso are filled with lively chatter and natty threads. Here are our favourite finds.

Massimo Alba

This pair of stripy jumpers from Massimo Alba is our pick for a freezing winter evening. The darker Simon model is knitted from plain threads while the lighter Falco is woven from multicoloured mouliné yarn for a melange effect. Both are made in Italy from long-haired baby alpaca fibres.


De Bonne Facture

Founder Déborah Neuberg painstakingly selects ateliers around France for the production of all items in her line. This caramel corduroy shirt is no exception: also available in dark khaki and dark navy, it comes with matching trousers.


The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear

Andrea Viganò and Fabio Attanasio are the duo behind this snappy eyewear brand. The designers are based in Milan and their specs and shades are hand-cut in Italy from Mazzucchelli 1849 acetate. Fend off the winter sun with one of these panto-shaped pairs, whether in ruby red, dark tortoiseshell or smoky grey.



Tyler Rowe is a “Made in the US” devotee. Soon after launching his menswear label in 2015, the New Yorker decided he needed to be as close as possible to the factories turning out his relaxed designs and moved production to Manhattan’s Garment District. His latest collection includes gems such as this slate-hued jacket, which is made from Missouri’s finest denim.



For the first time in its 82-year history, rainwear and outerwear guru Sealup is presenting a down jacket. Like all of the brand’s traditional raincoat designs it is lightweight, waterproof and breathable – but comes with a generous dose of warmth. The lively range of colours seal the deal.
