WatchAnish at Pitti Uomo 86 (Pt.2) – Street Style & Outfits
I wish watch fairs were a bit more like Pitti Uomo… And don’t get angry at me for saying that – I’m a big fan of horology and I love to talk watches pretty much anywhere and at any time, but the more I visit the big fairs the more I realise they can get a bit too technical and you kinda miss the fun part. Pitti is something totally opposite – imagine a street full of relaxed, fun and classy people just enjoying the weather, talking about whatever comes to mind, and sharing thoughts on fashion. If you’re not into that (and looking at dudes in colourful clothes) you might as well stop reading now and watch the video to get a better idea of what I mean
For us at WatchAnish, that was the first time we’ve visited Pitti Uomo, and it turned out to be in June, when we decided to host an ‘horology meets fashion meets writing instruments’ kind of dinner with our friends at Edelberg. During the day though, we were doing what most bloggers and media representatives did – spotting interesting outfits, people, watches and trying to capture the atmosphere of the event in general. I have to say – this was definitely something new for us, even though we claim to be a blog about style as much as watches; the amount of well dressed men was extremely high, and Anish’s flower blazer that would usually stand out in the crowd was just one of the hundreds. So without further ado – here they are – the men of Pitti this year!
Some interesting combinations, lots of colours, double breasted light jackets, shorts, three-piece suits – there was literally everything one could think of. Our friend Lino was rocking his DB light blue jacket with a Patek Philippe Nautilus, while Toni went for a full white look to match his awesome beard
Of course I also wished there were more people with complicated wristwatches, like we usually see at boutique openings and watch fairs, but I guess you can’t have it all and most would prefer one hobby over another. However there is still hope in me that soon we will be seeing a lot more stylish men with awesome watches…
