Among the many innovations presented in preview at Pitti Uomo 2017 in June and now in its edition number 92, a place of absolute importance is represented by jackets. The outerwaears meant for him thought for the 2018 summer season dominate the Florentine event highlighting what a man will wear in the summer of next year.

The real star of the summer 2018 will be the double-breasted coat, a real evergreen which, as argued Glenn O ‘Brian in its style guide “Being a Man”, has never abandoned any American president from Harry Truman and Bill Clinton. And here too, our Prime Minister has often dared to wear the two buttons.

The classic rainboat won’t be less, as well as jackets made of technical fabrics. However to the appeal will respond the most varied types of fabrics, from the classic and timeless leather to nylon, through cottons, up to linen. Regardless of the materials used and the length, the real watchword in terms of outerwear for next year is: elegance.

In relation to the famous brand, the jacket Fradi man is characterized by being made of jersey. Thanks to its compact plots and at the same time extremely light, this casual outerwear introduces a new way of thinking about men’s fashion. Unmissable also the sports news brought to Pitti Uomo for Spring/Summer 2018 by North Sails. It is a jacket made from super lightweight fabric with removable hood, although elegant in its simplicity.

In closing, we can not omit the Paltò trench and inspired by the achievements of the costume of the greatest films of the past: from classic trench coats of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca to Paul Newman’s in Holiday in Paris.
