Unfortunately, I didn't attend Pitti Uomo 97... Although it was inspirational to see well-dressed gentlemen from across the globe attend Florence to conduct their businesses. However one of the highlights for me is seeing how each person expresses themselves through detail, especially the way their neckties are styled.
The Mr London tie stands out harmoniously with the rest of the attire because they all resemble similar tones. This is important to note since the scarf, shirt and jacket are different colours. Interestingly enough, everything that is worn has a relaxed approach, as though he has forgotten what he is wearing - This is a good sign, as he is wearing the clothes and not the other way round.
A burgundy tie is always a good option to go for if you do not want to wear a bold necktie and still show contrast within your personal style. The great thing about this look is how he combined completely different patterns together! It’s simply classic, yet very effective. Very much seems to give a nod to the old school preppy look.
This is a great example of how to allow your tie to take centre stage and 'do the talking' by wearing toned-down hues. The Gordon tartan tie is worn with a crisp white shirt and perfectly framed with a grey unstructured overcoat, allowing the brown blazer to add extra depth in colour and tone.
The overall aesthetic is soft and yet, sharp.
