Something for the boys

19 May 2014

With long sunny days (apparently) around the corner, now's the time to start thinking about your summer wardrobe.

Leave it too late to purchase your holiday garmz and you'll regret it, the shops work on a mythical future calendar which sees July's swimming trunks replaced with hats and gloves. Not ideal. And you really don't wanna miss out when the offering is as good as it is this season.

Quality is key for the discerning gent, so spending more on less is always better advice than spending less on more. After all, you really don't need another 'funny t-shirt' from Primark, do you?

1. Striped Shirt by A.P.C - £75

Simple. Stylish. Sorted.

Buy it here.

2. Monaco Swim Shorts by Orlebar Brown - £225

You can swim in them, yes, but they're smart enough to do just about anything else in too. Garish board shorts these are not. 

Buy them here.

3. Shirt by Hentsch Man - £105

Your eyes don't deceive you, this entirely awesome shirt really does come with its own comb tucked into the front pocket.

Buy it here.

4. Backpack by Marc by Marc Jacobs - £95

Who knew camo and houndstooth could work so well together?

Buy it here.

5. Watch by Skagen - £135

This mesh strapped design is selling fast, so don't leave it too late (watch joke) to pick one up.

Buy it here.

6. Tee by Givenchy - £550

There had to be one outrageously priced t-shirt in this list and obvs it was gonna be Givenchy.

Buy it here.

7. Trainers by New Balance - £100

The brand may be from Boston, but these 670 trainers were proudly made in England. Support our manufacturing industry in serious style.

Buy them here.

8. Bee Tee by Ultra Tee - £35

It's hard to explain, there's just a great buzz around this t-shirt.

Buy it here.

9. Long Length Tee by Topman - £18

If there's one thing I've learnt from attending the past few seasons of London Collections:Men, it's that long length tees are where it's at. Luckily Topman has a whole collection of them, including this KTZ-esque number. 

Buy it here.

10. Silk Tie by Richard James - £85

Stuck in the office, dreaming of the beach? Bring the summer vibez indoors with this silk tie by Richard James. Watermelon Man indeed.

Buy it here.
