Pitti Uomo, Florence’s bi-annual fashion week and trade fair, is something I look forward to every season because it attracts a steady stream of stylish attendees. And this year was no exception, with the show marking a turnaround in many ways. The full nine-yard approach to the suit is back – yes, including the tie – and one of my favorite subjects of his is Kenji Kaga, owner of the Florentine tie company Tie Your Tie. I was overjoyed. Vintage has always been a part of the offerings at every fashion week, but this season more attendees crossed genres to appreciate more than a decade of vintage with matching watches. .

“I define my style as classic with a modern sensibility, and that’s exactly how I see the Lange 1,” says Brian Sakawa. “It’s versatile. It’s not flashy. But as the kids say, who knows.”

“My favorite watch brand is Lange, always has been, and always will be,” says Khaled Nasr. “For me, this watch is really the starting point for the company. It’s very unique to make a sporty watch like this, and I just loved it once I saw it. That’s why I had to have it. is.”
