The latest example? The powder blue Gucci suit he wore while attending the house’s Fall 2023 menswear show at Pitti Uomo in Milan on Friday. The look, which he accented with a skinny (possibly leather?) tie, loafers and a bright gold watch, was kissed by signature motifs of the Italian brand: androgyny, a rockstar flair, fashioning the unfashionable and extravagance.

The Top 5 Street Style Trends from the Men’s Shows and How To Steal Them

The traveling menswear circus kicked off last week in London for the city’s inaugural men’s fashion week, moved to Florence for prestigious menswear tradeshow Pitti Uomo, then on to Milan, and is currently wrapping up in Paris. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from covering Pitti Uomo and perusing Tommy Ton’s street style shots for GQ during the men’s shows, it’s that the boys love to preen and peacock outside the show venues just as much as the girls.

It’s a cuff rolled just-so with crazy colored socks showing underneath. Or a double-breasted blazer tailored to perfection with gloves hanging out of the breast pocket. Or sneakers and a Supreme hat worn with a more tailored look. More often than not, we get styling tips for ourselves.
