Pitti Uomo is the menswear event of the year.  Its the time when fashion designers come out and show off their latest designs and styles to store owners.  As a result, some of the most well dressed men from around the world come and stand around smoking and eating, getting pictures taken of them.  Even though I couldn’t be in Florence with them, I still dressed up to be apart of it.
