It's a trade show where designers and brands from all over the world come together to showcase their brand to potential stockists or different shops. We're focusing on Pitti Uomo 90, which means that it's the ninetieth Pitti Uomo show that's taking place.

Just because you're dressing like a gentlemen doesn't mean you can't add your own twist to your look. The beard, the ear piercing and the chains; everything is telling you it shouldn't work, but it does.
