One more time - Monochromatic blues in Florence Another set of pictures from Pitti Uomo (from day 1) courtesy of TSBmen and A&H Magazine, shot by Neil Watson.

Double-breasted suit from SuitSupply, denim shirt (mtm) by Schoffa and mto-tie by Arcuri Cravatte via Linkson Jack.

The dark green checked linen tie from Berg&Berg is partly (but not too much) matched in tones to the string loafers from Carmina. Bracelets are...
