One of the most important weeks in the men's style annual calendar is Pitti Uomo located in Florence, Italy. Twice a year - in January and June - the world's 'most stylish' flock to the ancient city of Florence and the city comes to life under the Italian sunshine with the most exciting summer outfits.
During the four-day show brands exhibit their newest collections, and retailers can choose products for the upcoming season. Although commerce is in the heart of the show, the 'Peacocks' make Pitti what it is, encouraging even the most shy of the exhibitors and buyers to dust off their best bespoke suits, fedora hats, brogues and of course, pocket squares.
