Its funny how the beauty of art has so much more to do with the frame than the artwork itself

It's Pitti Uomo (87) time and as always, the event has been plastered all over my social media feed.
Those of you not familiar may be asking; "Jared, what's Pitti Uomo?", to which I reply, It's the world's premiere men's fashion festival - full of new season products and accessories.
"Is it Inspirational?"
"Are their stylish people there?"
"Can anyone go?"
"Are there ever badly dressed people?"
I'm afraid so.
"So how was it this year?"
And to be completely honest with you, I didn't go, but from what I saw it was lacking.
Usually I would look through the photos and see crazy new ideas, ridiculous colour combos and some outfits and styles worth applauding.
But this time around I felt very uninspired. It was a little more dull than usual and that left me feeling slightly disappointed, but there were still a few stylish outfits - And here are some of my favourites in no particular order:
Massimiliano Donnarumma of Otto Marchesi
Fabrizio Oriani of Gentlemen's Wear Daily
Luca Rubinacci of Rubinacci
Brown in my town? Always!
Lachie Watson of Oscar Hunt Tailors (Yes, I do work with him and Yes, I picked it because I like it.)
The best is always last and this was easily it, Erik Mannby well done! (Even his other half dresses well too).
Of course there were your regular faces and everyone goes crazy for them, but in my option it doesn't matter who's wearing it, if it looks good well then to me that's enough!
See you soon Italy.
