My Pitti favorites

Torsten Grunwald, blogger from Denmark. His checked, lightweight Teba jacket is perfect for hot June in Florence. Not to wear a tie is a sensible decision. The neckwear is not missed as the jacket is at the centre of attention anyway.

Luigi Bucci, Brand Manager for Baracuta. The generously cut seersucker suit looks casual and smart at the same time. The second outside chest pocket adds a hint of workwear to the suit.

Alessandro Gregotti, Fashion Manager. He wears the double-breasted Naby blazer the Italian way with narrow trousers and smart loafers

Darhel Anthony, fashion designer and owner of the bespoke atelier Coup de Grâce in New York City. Darhel’s outfit is a perfect example of summer elegance without a jacket.

Daniél Meul, buyer at PAUW MANNEN in Amsterdam. He looked great each day we met him. The dark blue linen suit, hand sewn in Italy, was our favourite outfit.

Herbert B. Möller, owner, of Möller & Möller in Hanover. He wears the silhouette that he has been teaching his customers since the 1980s. Definitely one of Germany’s best dressed men.

Italo Borrello, lawyer and banker. Complete Bespoke look at its best. This gentleman, who doesn’t work in the menswear business, could show the trade visitors a trick or two.

Henrik Hjerl and his wife. Milk coffee brown linen suit, pastel pink shirt and green printed silk tie. Perfect Savile Row Style, in beautiful harmony with his wife’s minimalist elegance.

Mark Francis, founder of Heron’s Ghyll in London. He wears a unstructured linen jacket from his collection, which is inspired by Asian collar styles. Everything is made in London from English fabrics.

Conrad Hasselbach, owner of Shoes & Garment in Hamburg. He wears a summer look inspired by English tradition, yet with a modern twist.

Three officers of the Italian army, very stylish in service dress. They willingly agreed to be photographed, but wanted to remain anonymous.

Pascal Zimmer, owner of Basics & Bespoke in Luxembourg. Linen suit made in his shop, as from “Waves” by Eduard von Keyserling.

Marcel Marbus, General Manager at New Tailor in Utrecht.

Dark brown linen suit worn with white open necked shirt. The Northern European idea of summer business style.
