Overcoats &  Cropped Trousers – Though the cropped trousers look has been in style for a while now, it’s usually reserved for the warmer months.  This year at Pitti Uomo, however, we’ve seen more of it worn in the cold (paired with socks) with an overcoat.  Though most paired these cropped trousers with socks, a brave few bared their ankles in the cold.

Wine Tones – A rich reddish purple wine tone is an excellent way to add some sophisticated color to your winter wardrobe.  Wether it’s a wine colored suit or a wine-toned overcoat, it’s rich color which immediately exudes luxury.

The New Three-Piece – Three-piece suits have been popular for many years, of course, but this year in particular we’ve seen a lot of interesting three-piece ensembles pop up at Pitti.  Gone is a the solid plain navy three-piece; in its place, checkers, bold stripes and mix-matched pieces.  Paired with a classic, plain white or blue shirt, this is an excellent choice to consider for your work look.

Not-So-Basic Brown – Brown is definitely making a comeback this year, as we saw more if it than ever before, worn mostly in a tonal head-to-toe look.  This works best when you mix different shades of brown to give your look some dimension.

Checkers – Checkered patterns of all sorts were de rigeur at this year’s Pitti.  We liked them best worn by older gentlemen, paired with slick and fuss-free classics for a thoroughly modern-meets-vintage look.

Utilitarian Jackets – Though classic overcoats definitely were not missing at Pitti this year, we did notice an influx of utilitarian and sports-inspired outerwear layered over otherwise traditionally tailored suits.  It’s an interesting juxtaposition that we’re keen to see more of.
