#1293 Pity I'm not at Pitti

All photos: Tommy Ton for GQ

The best style inspiration generally comes from the guys at the shows rather than the guys in the shows. Nothing beats a good runway presentation, but there's something about seeing a real life outfit put together by an individual that I find especially riveting. As far as menswear goes, Florence's Pitti Uomo is the Mecca. It's where all the menswear obsessives come out - the details are insane. It's not about fads or trends, but classic menswear worn incredibly well. That said, looking at the streetstyle photos that Tommy Ton has been taking for GQ, a couple of classic menswear trends have emerged - a resurgence of khaki, double breasted sports coats and rolled denim. Good thing I packed my beige pants.

Check it out below.

Khaki:



Beige pants + chambray shirt = the dopeness.

Sperry plimsoll sneakers - forget leather boat shoes.




Double breasted blazers:





That's how you tie a silk kerchief.


Rolled denim:




And just because I love green, check this suit:


I LIKE YOU!
