Is This a Thing: Break Dancing When You Get a Fit Off?

Today, Paul Smith showed its fall 2017 collection at Pitti Uomo by way of acrobatic models who, so enthralled to be wearing such great outfits (also known as getting a ‘fit off), started dancing or balancing on their buddies’ head. Is this a thing?

There’s really no greater feeling than when you put on a series of unconnected garments, look in the mirror, and see that you have successfully made yourself look fly. (Here’s footage of me after doing just that thing:)

Thanks #paulsmith for this #georgemichael moment. I needed it. #pittiuomo #fw17

Or when your crush compliments your shoes.

Or when your friend helps you put the perfect outfit together.

Or when you buy those pants in a size small because it’s new year, new you, baby.

Or when you know you’re the only reason any of your friends are halfway well-dressed but you’re humble about it.

Of course this is a thing. It’s the most relatable thing!
