Karl-Edwin Guerre is not just one of the most talented photographers in the industry but also known for his personal style.
Another thing worth of mention was the popularity of street wear that is also present in pictures one can find online. As Hypebeast wrote in the article "Pitti Uomo 89: The season Florence went streetwear" this time Florence really was not just about tweeds, brogues and Italian elegance but more and more about denim, sneakers, hoodies and sweatpants. It remains to be seen if this is the way the fair will develop in the future. I personally think that there is room for both - classic tailoring and modern street wear.
But this time I will leave those more fashion-forward ensembles and street style-attires to someone else to judge. Instead I have picked some of my personal favorites representing outfits and style I personally appreciated and that was seen in Florence. And as you know - pictures tell more than words. So let's go straight to the pics and highlight some "DLA-approved" outfits.
Luca Rubinacci in purple. Going bold is alright if you just know how to do it.
Jake from The Armoury in his double-breasted prince-of-wales patterned suit. Also a nice way to use a contrast collar shirt.
Keep it simple. Roll necks and rain coats.
Browns and Blues by Beckett&Robb.
Josh Peskowitz shows how to do it casually.
Sometimes a colorful scarf can bring that little piece of contrast what you need to your outfit.
Showroom-owner Alessandro Squarzi - casual and comfy but still rather elegant.
Wearing a casual jacket like Barbour over your suit is appropriate sometimes. But please leave that bow-tie home.
The best-dressed guy this year at Pitti Uomo in my book was Mr. Marco Zambaldo. Here in his dark brown corduroy blazer and denim slacks.
White trousers and a field jacket is casual combination that usually always works.

Pitti Uomo's Best-Dressed Men by EsquireNo street style to be exact but definitely one of the most interesting projects regarding best-dressed men in Pitti Uomo was brought up by Esquire. The gallery consists of 34 portraits taken in studio in Florence during Pitti Uomo. In these pictures it is clearly shown that rather than being a peacock and wearing multiple colors and bold combinations, you can express style and personality through sober and prudent, simple choices.
Andrea Luparelli playing with shades of brown.
Editor-in-chief of Manolo.se Andreas Weinås is definitely one the best-dressed men in Scandinavia. Always subtle and elegant.
Franco Castellani with some blues.
Mr. Noboru Kakuta is a source of inspiration for many. And as you can see there is a reason for that.
Per Miver is the owner of Linnegatan 2. Someone might call this look casual chic.
Roll neck sweater, white cotton slacks and field jacket - classic combo that always works.
Mo Anvar with his burgundy oversized overcoat and distressed denim.
