During Pitti Uomo earlier this year, Scott Schuman invited the 25 people that had the biggest influence on his website and that sum up mens style for him. He brought them all together for a lunch in a traditional trattoria in Florence like last year, but this time there was some karaoke going on. Which was a bit strange, it broke with the other Lunches that made a traditional and conservative impact.
The main focus, like always, lies on the suits. Tailoring at it’s best, Lino Leluzzi, Nick Wooster and Co. show you how to wear it.
Tommy Ton, the god of street style, breaks it down for four-pins. The most stylish men in the world according to the master-capturer himself. This is a very agreeable list, and of course, the based badass Nick Wooster is in it. Be aware, this is not a ranking, it’s just a list.
1. Nick Wooster
“What can I say about Nick? He is a badass. He is a sartorial wizard and is fearless in his wardrobe choices. I love how Nick loves to try and incorporate different styles into his look, but always knows exactly what works for his shape and body. If anybody deserves the title of the King of Cool, it’s the one and only Woost God.”
2. Stefano Pilati
“Stefano Pilati is the epitome of elegance. He has such a precise sense of fit and proportion that only he can pull off so many different silhouettes. The first time I saw him in person was on the street in Paris. I was walking, munching on my ham and cheese baguette, and he strolled past me in an oversize red swing coat. My mouth dropped open and I froze. Not pulling out my camera and taking his photo at that moment is one of my biggest regrets. I would get hit by ongoing traffic just to get the chance to photograph him.”
3. Sam Lambert
“From his hats down to his shoes, Sam is always on point. There’s never a moment where he looks out of place and every inch of what he’s wearing is perfectly tailored and selected based on the right shade and fabrication. With an early upbringing in tailoring and years of mastering Savile Row, Sam knows exactly how to look swagged out without ever looking like all those try-hard peacocks that parade around him. Here’s a professional street style tip: Standing next to Sam is a guarantee that you’ll suddenly look snap-worthy.” (more…)
NYFW. Tommy Ton takes us on a journey through the streets of NYC during NYFW AW 2013. Notes: Fur Jackets are the go. Snow is an amazing attachment to streetstyle pictures and when it comes to street style, no one messes with Nick Wooster.
PITTI. It’s fashion time again. WIth London Collections: Men finished yesterday the world of fashion has put his eyes on Florence, Firenze. The Pitti Uomo fashion festival is all about well cut suits and gentleman fashion. It’s not like there are only british gentlemen around, it’s all kinds of gentleman fashion colliding. The italian, the french and the british. Tommy Ton, like every year, went over there to spot whats hot on the streets. Tweed is the trending thing. Cool scottish like decent patterns are what to wear right now, just look on Nick Wooster, he is the most avantgarde one. And there is one other thing i was wondering about, is camouflage still on? Looking at the styles of London Collections: Men I would’ve said: No, this one is over. But the people at Pitti ( and I give more about their opinions than on the opinions of London guys) are still wearing camo as if it was just yesterday that it got trending. We will see some more camo in 2013 i guess then. Pitti Uomo – far the best fashion event every year.
