Like every edition of the Florence based menswear event Pitti Uomo, January’s opened its doors to hundreds of immaculately styled men. We sent down our correspondent Robert Spangle to identify the best dressed.
Marco Zambaldo, Zambaldo Showroom Italy
With his military jackets, such as the fur lined M65 eld coat, I’ve always found Marco inspiring. He tends to stick to a more casual, yet tailor-made, look than most other guests at Pitti. Donning items more commonly associated with pilots or captains, he embodies the “heroic” aspect of classic menswear.
Saman Amel & Dag Granath, Atelier Saman Amel
When I look at Saman Amel and Dag Granath, I see the future – or at least the way I visualise it. With an eye on the multidisciplinary and a rm understanding of what constitutes good taste, the duo know how to mix suits with cult brands and streetwear with vintage, and still look ready for business.
Kim Seong Su, Korean Actor
I’ve just discovered the impeccably dressed Seoung Su. With a penchant for tailored styles, he often opts for a kind of optimism in his choice of colours. Maybe that’s how he gets away with bold out ts, such as silk suits.
Jake Grantham, The Armoury Nyc
Considering his youth, Jake Grantham is incredibly stylish. Here he’s wearing a distinctive Italian vintage style suit, characterised by its high waist trousers, striking lapels that flow perfectly from his shoulders. The reason these details stand out is that they are a far cry from what a majority of young people active in the tailoring industry unquestioningly embrace. Grantham’s trousers aren’t cropped, his suits aren’t slim, and his lapels are perfectly designed to rest on his body, rather than taking o in the wind.
Alessandro Rapini, ap+a Studio
Alessandro’s ability to look effortlessly elegant in country wear was admirable. His outfit of a classic Barbour jacket, denim shirt, tweed waistcoat, embroidered chinos was nished with a yellow tie and robust tassel loafers.
Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, United Arrows & Sons
Unfazed by clashing colours and styles, there seems to be nothing that Poggy can’t pull off. Known for his tendency to dress multiculturally, he’s commonly spotted wearing a combination of anything from American streetwear and Japanese accessories to Italian suits and Middle-Eastern kaftans. I’m a big fan of Poggy’s curiosity.
