It always seem so effortless for these 'pitti peacocks' (label for men who dress super well in Pitti Uomo) and what are the tricks or secrets to dressing up like them? In this issue of Fashionista, let's take a look at how some of these pitti peacocks cleverly used key items that will create a very fashionable smart casual Pitti look for yourself.
