DEJON MARQUIS : DAY 1 AT PITTI UOMO was an honor to be amongst the most dapper men in the fashion industry. This is my first time attending Pitti and being in Italy, so I was happy. I was ready to meet the men that I’ve shared the spotlight with on many of blogs and fashion websites. The meet and greet was nice, which was great because I didn’t think i had a fan base in Florence Italy. It was great to be around guys who loved the fashion business as much as I do and wanted to see me thrive with all the knowledge and advice given to me. For my look I wanted to be clean and Dapper bring in different patterns that complimented each other well mixing in different shades of creams and browns. My Blazer was 100% camel hair which was different for me never thought about wearing camel hair, but the cut was great on me and well made. My plaid pants was a piece I knew I wanted to wear because it had so many stand out tones I knew i could do a lot with them. The tweed vest and colorful pocket square I feel gave the outfit a pop to help bring more attention to the blazer. Then of course I had to accessorize with the dapper bear lapel pin customized by me and vintage briefcase courtesy of my grandmother. I really liked how my shoes and briefcase went together so well and my tie matched perfectly with my pants. Successful day at Pitti. Now for Day 2.
