Herring at Pitti Uomo 93, Winter edition.

Herring Gidleigh bag

Everytime I go to Florence for Pitti, I always have something in mind.

Travel light!

So I can only take a few pairs of shoes. They are the heaviest things in a suitcase and it can be a big deal when you take a flight now. The fair goes on for four days but I ‘only’ took three pairs.

 

  1. A pair of brown tasseled loafers, versatile and comfortable. I wore them the first day and the last day.
  2. A pair of tweed slippers. I wore them the second day, matching the Gidleigh bag I was carrying.
  3. A pair of dark blue double monks for the third day and my travelling.

With these three pairs I was ‘safe’. I even had options for my evening meetings and my dinners.

Pitti is a fair dedicated to elegance but also to business, the biggest one dedicated to menswear in the world.

So again, you must be able to find the right balance between chic and practical. That is exactly what I’ve been trying to explain to you Gentlemen for almost 2 years…
