Pitti Uomo: The Major Moments
We’ve scoured the digital jungle to throw together some standout style lessons learned from the Mens Spring 15 collections at Pitti Uomo in Florence. (What the hell is Pitti Uomo? It’s the reason your instagram feed jammed up with pictures of men walking around in short pants in Italy…aka market & presentation week for select mens brands showing collections in Florence)

Our top takeaways, after the jump:

Summer weekends are priceless time to soak up the sun before heading back to the horribly lit office on Monday. (Clearly we need to work on our real tans over at WingtipJungle, as self tan & sweat are a deadly combo in the Summer) We like to keep our poolside looks street ready for ducking out of the sun into the pool house or beachside restaurant. Current obsession: the Kennington LTD of California…sick prints, legendary story…done & done.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…after taking a few weeks off the grid to move the Wingtip HQ’s, we’re back in action. We took to the roof of GothamWestNYC.com suited up for Summer. The WingtipJungle suit includes our favorite jeans paired back to a linen blend sport coat and preppy Summer staples like madras and double monk strap shoes. Let this look be the go to for Summer weddings, parties, & the office. (Similar or same items below for your purchasing pleasure)
