We all know the “peacocking” phenomenon at Pitti Uomo, but did you know that the best peacocks also have the best beards? Being part of the beard gang myself, I decided to focus my inspiration on an accessory that’s exponentially better than any tie or pocket square. As you can see below, there is a science to using your beard to its fullest potential while in Florence. The beard is powerful, but you should also have at least two of the three Q-Tips below to ensure you are representing the #beardgang properly at Pitti:
1. Have on some form of eyewear.
2. Know the best angle for your beard (don’t worry… as a photographer, I can move around to get the correct angle).
3. Carry some form of tobacco product, whether you inhale or not.
