Last week I had the opportunity to attend my very first Pitti Uomo, something I have been looking forward to since the very moment I found out Pitti Uomo existed, so, like, seven years ago? This season marked the 87th Pitti Uomo complete with featured designer Shayne Oliver of Hood By Air, which is the primary reason I got to go for work in the first place.

In case it wasn't obvious enough already, Pitti Uomo is by and large the best menswear trade show on the planet and just so happens to be the street style capital of the world when it comes to bearded dudes in suits. I came, I saw, I got sonned every step of the way by industry veterans who are killing it way more than I ever will. But, hey, at least I learned a lot.
