Frenzy Fridays: Do It Like a Dude

So like I said in my last post, Pitti Uomo is underway in Florence and one of my favorite things to look out for at this time is not just the shows [My recommendations? Alexander McQueen, Kenzo, and Topman Design-- check 'em out yo!], but the endless flow of street style photos that pop up. I have a weakness for well dressed men, so this is a) endless eye candy and b) outfit inspiration galore! One photo in particular came up in Tommy Ton's Style.com feed:


....I love it. He is not wearing anything garish, but the combination of the double breasted navy suit, the high collar dark green coat, snazzy glasses [I tried to coin the word 'glazzies' but I don't think that flies], and gloves looks so SMART.

Seriously, I like this outfit so much that my mind immediately started buzzing on how I could swing this on my own. You can find my translation below:


SbDW- Frenzy Fridays
clockwise from top left: Chicnova.com military coat [another snazzy one here], Cambridge Satchel Co. cross-body, Vila.com studded top, 10 Crosby by Derek Lam pants, Paul Smith booties, Karen Walker sunnies, John Lewis gloves
Basically I still incorporated some of his outfit [the military coat, the glazzies...does it work now?, the gloves] but then put in my own touches of the pumped up booties, a studded collar, and a cross-body bag in Fall's hottest color, oxblood.

Sidenote: As much as I love the color, I HATE the name oxblood. It just makes me think about cattle, which then makes me think about the food industry, which then makes me think about slaughter....and then I throw up. Can't it be called 'lovely dark red' or something?

I can totally picture myself eating gelato, sitting on the steps in front of the Fortezza, admiring all the handsome gents running between shows.

Ciao!
