Pitti Uomo

Here are some of Johns notes and observations.

Camel is everywhere, blousons, jackets and knits - highlighted with Winter White.

Rust is a key highlight colour that is prevalent in patterns (overcheck) Brown is still showing strongly with darker tones: Chocolate.

Other colours that still featured were, as always: Blue though toning towards Steel Blue & Denim Blue. Deeper Greens are showing in the background. Grey is important, though has lightened up towards mid & Dove Grey.

Bordeaux is still showing, though mainly as a pattern highlight (check or knit)


Checks are still there, however, they are starting to become more subtle. Primarily window panes & moving towards smaller patterning such as Houndstooth. Stripes are continuing to grow in strength, though in a wider set scale than the past i.e; further spacing between the stripe.

Knits are showing stronger and more ‘macro’ ribbing and cabling with varied/playful textures...all macro. Plain knits are still important, though with a more casual look they are trending towards texture...as it’s more relaxed.

Knitting is also being integrated into outerwear, either as a complete item like a travel blazer or as a ‘hybrid’ like a blouson or bomber with knitted panels.

Blousons are strongly moving into the formal wardrobe, taking some space from traditional sports jacketing. Overcoats, including Double Breasted, are also prominent.

Shirting is becoming more strong coloured and stripes are popular. 

The silhouette still relies on tailoring with a tailored jacket being paired with a fuller and looser trouser.

Trousers and pants are casual in feel with drawstring/elasticated waistband, cotton & corduroy cloths and cargo pockets. Pleats are prominent.

The footwear continues to drive towards sneaker & casual.

Other accessories showing strongly are headwear, especially beanies, caps and more traditional Hats.
