At Pitti Uomo 2018, the great fashion festival that took place in Florence last January, the gangster look has been all the rage with its typical vest, the borsalino hat, a light blue suit and the unavoidable cigar, better if from Tuscany. The look of the Roaring Twenties, hence, but with a touch of originality that made everyone mad about it. Actually, it is more than just a look, it’s a way of being for some people, and not only during this important fashion manifestation, as pointed out by Marmora di Potenza brothers.
Their outfits have been characterized by showy vests, curly and well-cured moustaches, as an undeniable trend even in the beginning of 2018. Speaking of eccentricity, in the days of Pitti Uomo Roberto Malizia – alias Malice (fashion influencer) – declared, “Gaudy accessories are going to be very important in next seasons.”
A recognizable outfit surely helps in the world of fashion, but the gangster look that emerged during the Florentine event was not the only one. Another outfit representing one of the most awaited trends in next seasons is the North European Fisherman look.
How can you recognize it? By looking at its long trousers with ankle turn-ups, but also its jeans overalls, its large overcoats and, obviously, the ever present wool hats. What about you? Do you look more like a gangster or a fisherman?
