Day One Outfit at PU85

Now that I’ve taken my “street style photographer” cap off, I’ll get back to what I do best…outfit blog.

Again, day one of Pitti Uomo 85 was an unforgettable experience and something that I will look back to and just smile to myself. From viewing Tommy Ton’s snaps for GQ on a yearly basis, to actually seeing the legend in action at the actual event that inspired me to start this blog, my trip to Florence has definitely been life changing.

So, here is my outfit from Day One of Pitti Uomo 85…finally. It was all about layers at Pitti. Nine out of ten gents were wearing a shirt, cardigan/sweatshirt, blazer, scarf and finally topped off with a killer coat. So here was my attempt:
