Pitti Uomo, the Tradeshow

image


For being a menswear trade show, there’s surprisingly little coverage on actual products and brands at Pitti Uomo. Most of what you see is street style photos of the attendees. If you want to read about products, there’s Men’s Reverie, StyleForum, Esquire’s Style Blog and GQ Italy. Nick Sullivan also sometimes leaks product shots through his Twitter account. But outside of that, there’s not much being said.

Shaya Green, the proprietor of Exquisite Trimmings, attended this year, and was kind enough to share some of his photos with me. These are all from the trade show’s floor. Brands featured here include Vienna shoemaker Ludwig Reiter; one of my favorite knitwear companies, Inis Meain; Alexandra Diaconu and Michael Rollig’s relatively new company, Zonkey Boot; Spanish shoemaker Carmina; and the Neapolitan ready-to-wear line of Orazio Luciano.

I’ll have more about Inis Meain and Zonkey Boots in the coming weeks, but for now, you can just enjoy the photos. Ludwig Reiter has some interesting, high-walled derbys, but what caught my eye are the suede single monk chukkas you see sitting in the back. I also like Inis Meain’s pub jacket, but possibly because I read A Suitable Wardrobe too much, and Will has mentioned something similar a few times. And Carmina’s jodhpur continues to call out to me. It’s possibly one of my favorite jodhpurs, next only to a very old and traditional design made by Saint Crispin’s (though, I would like it without the floating medallion).

Many thanks to Shaya for his generosity. Readers may want to check out his store, where he sells many nice things by brands such as Drake’s, Rubinacci, and Dents (including some that are on sale right now). He also has a Tumblr account that you can follow. On it now is a photo of one of the nicest guys I know in the business, Michael Hill.
