Photos taken at the recent men’s fashion gatherings in Italy, namely, Pitti Uomo in Florence and fashion week in Milan—particularly those shot by Tommy Ton—have shown a strong resurgence of everybody’s favorite boy-color: blue. It wouldn’t take a professional trendspotter to simply notice the general preference for blue, in all its most handsomely royal and vibrant iterations. Here are a few of my picks from the recently-surfaced street style snaps:
In response to the apparent wave of blue on the streets of Italy, allow me to share with you my very recent purchase, which I am about to mar on the scorching, occasionally-pungent, mean streets of New York. I thought to breathe a whiff of prep into my summer with a pair of Tod’s driving shoes in a slightly burnished periwinkle-blue:

I stubbornly cling to non-color for my clothing, and may not yet be ready to have all that blue next to my face. But as a gentle way of livening up a dark wardrobe for the warmer months, I think these blue shoes would be just right.
