A gentleman's fashion agreement at Pitti Uomo

Tweeds, high-tech fabrics and hats make the man in Florence

A gentleman's fashion agreement at Pitti Uomo

Rome, January 14 - There is rigor on display at the 89th edition of the Pitti Uomo men's wear trade fair ongoing in Florence. The rigor of the gentleman and the soldier that conveys a sense of quiet luxury suitable both as leisurewear and in more formal urban surroundings next fall-winter. Indeed the appeal of the British gentleman and the soldier are proving immune to the seasonal cycles of designer fashion among the over 1,200 brands showcasing their collections at Pitti Uomo. Silhouettes and hues inspired by military uniforms have developed a status on par with that of the British country gentleman, retaining prestige with men regardless of their generation at the Florentine showcase that is running through Friday under the Generation(s) theme. Men will be dressed to kill in fall-winter 2016 - clad in a Lardini jacket inspired by US air force uniforms or in a Blauer USA field jacket designed like those donned by American police officers, among others. Or they will be garbed for a hunting expedition, ready to strike a target on the field or at the office. Jackets will be in warm cashmeres, tweeds and bouclé wools for a rigorous winter in the outdoors while checks and glen plaids will also make them suitable for the city. Trouser silhouettes will be soft with traditional chinos and macho combat pants. Coats, the highlight of many collections, will have high-tech anti-freeze fabrics - including Moorer which is launching a special lining that warms up when it comes into contact with the body. Blauer is also debuting new coats with heated interiors that can be regulated to three different temperatures. Sweaters are often coordinated with coats in terms of fabrics and colors. Conte of Florence has launched a graphic pattern evoking the 1950s styles donned by gentlemen in Martha's Vineyard or Palm Beach while Cruciani has brought back the cardigan, in cashmere, merino and baby alpaca. Lardini's British gentleman goes military with formal suits in glen checks mixed with oversize coats, parkas and military jackets. Meanwhile denim is produced with a wool weave at Roy Roger's as the Florentine label also eyed military garb for its gabardine parkas, and bomber jackets in nylon and cotton. Indeed wardrobe staples such as the trench coat, husky and parka models have been given a makeover in a number of collections. L.B.M.1911 is premiering field jackets, hooded parkas, down jackets and shirts and trench coats in waterproof fabrics with a flannel or wool lining. Circle of Gentlemen is using velvets, Super 140 Italian wool and tweed for its jackets, coats and waistcoats, mixing tartan shirts with washed glen check pants. And to finish off the gentlemanly look, hats are making a major comeback next fall-winter. Hatmakers Barbisio, a company founded in 1862 in Sagliano Micca near Biella, today owned by Cappellificio Cervo, offers clients the possibility of personalizing their hats made in light felt and beaver cloth. Doria 1905 is debuting a hat line in waterproof felt. Overall, collections are offering a taste of the most classic hats in a range of materials, from felt to velvet and leather, as well as funkier models with patterns inspired by the 1970s. Borsalino has launched the Urban collection, in cooperation with ready-to-wear brand Slam Jam with its classic models in lapin felt with dark and camel hues. Super Duper Hats is topping its oversized hats with an ambitious reflection on good and evil as the dichotomy of human existence translates into a strong juxtaposition of hues - the dark side of the color palette as opposed to candid notes of cream and beige.
