G-Star Raw Vodan Worker Overshirt
Camouflage has been back on rails for too long to be considered a trend, these days it’s more a bona fide style staple. It makes sense, then, to apply the print to another wardrobe workhorse as G-Star Raw has done with this ready-for-the-frontline (or just the park field) overshirt.
Available at G-Star, priced £140.
P. Johnson Linen Drawstring Shorts
Whether it’s for wear at the beach or on the bus, Aussie brand P. Johnson has summer style wrapped up. Case in extremely stylish point: these linen drawstring shorts that just dropped as part of an exclusive capsule range at Mr Porter.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £125.
Ted Baker Onyahed Wash Bag
Who would you rather be in the gym: the guy who carts (and subsequently drops) three or four lotions and potions in the shower, or the stylish guy with a small grooming arsenal neatly organised in a decent leather wash bag? The latter is Ted’s approach. Always be like Ted.
Available at Ted Baker, priced £60.
Birkenstock Men’s Tunis Bout Ouvert
Birkenstocks, once tarred with the same ‘what are those!?’ brush as Vibram Fivefingers and rubber Crocs, are now prime fashion fodder. The change in fortunes probably has something to do with models like these, which would sit comfortably at the end of a pair of tailored trousers.
Available at Amazon, priced £47.21.
BoohooMan Biggie Crown T-Shirt
When it comes to heavyweights of the rap world (pun very much intended), Biggie stands head, shoulder and cholesterol above the rest. Paying homage to Notorious B.I.G., Boohoo Man has released an ‘Iconic Artist’ series of T-shirt, also featuring images of Tu Pac, Bob Marley and Snoop Dogg.
Available at BoohooMan, priced £15.
Converse x Carhartt WIP Chuck Taylor All Star 70 OX
When it comes to cooler than cool footwear, Converse is always a safe pair of hands (or feet). The American firm’s latest tie-up is with workwear brand Carhartt WIP and sees the iconic All Star 70 OX gain brown duck canvas uppers, red bar-tack style accents on the outsole and two sets of premium cotton woven laces.
Available at Carhartt, priced £75.
Scotch & Soda Oversized Overshirt
Day drinking has a sneaky habit of quickly turning into night drinking (damn you, time.) A cotton overshirt, like this red striped version by the aptly named Scotch & Soda, makes for the perfect evening throwover when the metaphorical beer blanket doesn’t cut it.
Available at Scotch & Soda, priced £179.95.
New Look Revere Collar Leopard Print Shirt
Some of this season’s best prints and patterns hail from the jungle, but that’s not license to go full Liberace. Show off your animal instinct but swerve anything too showy by opting for monochrome colours. New Look’s short sleeve shirt is also finished with a Cuban collar for added trend points.
Available at ASOS, priced £19.99.
Uniqlo Brown Supima Cotton Crew Neck T-Shirt
White T-shirts are a classic. Navy goes with everything, yada yada. If the standard colours don’t whet your menswear whistle like they once did, discover Uniqlo’s exceptional range of basics. This season the line-up includes ultra-soft Supima cotton tees in a range of stylish shades like this brown hue, which will partner perfectly with white jeans.
Available at Uniqlo, priced £9.90.
River Island Grey Knit Cardigan
We get it. Right now you can’t bear the thought of being in anything other than shorts and a T-shirt. But investing early in pieces that will become power players in the autumn – like River Island’s grey knit cardigan – is a solid way to beat the crowds (and hopefully it’ll sell out by the time others wise up.)
Available at River Island, priced £28.
H&M Elasticated Wool Trousers
Wool trousers sound like a recipe for sitting in ball soup all day, but the fabric is, in fact, surprisingly breathable. H&M’s smart (in more than one way) version features an elasticated waist to allow for any swelling caused by, erm, the heat. It’s the heat, right?
Available at H&M, priced £49.99.
The Kooples x Elephant Family T-Shirt
An elephant might not be able to fly but it can at least look fly, on a T-shirt anyway. For its latest charity initiative, the Kooples has teamed up with the Elephant Family preservation charity, creating this silk-screened tee featuring the French brand’s current frontman Waris Ahluwalia in the process.
Available at The Kooples, priced £65.
Topman AAA Bleached White Denim Shirt
White goods outside of the kitchen aren’t just limited to airy linen trousers. They can look rugged as hell, too. Designed in New York and worn all over the world, Topman’s supercharged streetwear label AAA is back for another season with pieces like this rough-and-ready bleached denim shirt.
Available at Topman, priced £35.
A.P.C. Howard Bracelet
There aren’t many things more gross than the sweaty band of slicked-down arm hair left behind by a leather watch strap. Upgrade your wrist candy to something a little breezier, like A.P.C’s new range of minimalist jewellery, launched to celebrate the Parisian brand’s 30th anniversary.
Available at End, priced £115.
Franks Daintree Swim Shorts
When it comes to swimwear, you only have a limited amount of fabric to show off your style. Australian brand Franks packs in a lot of personality per square-inch, particularly with its printed designs like these repeat palm motif shorts.
Available at Snow And Rock, priced £60.
Justin Bieber Purpose Tour Hoodie
Though he may be a thundering idiot at times, there are two things that can’t be denied about Bieber. 1) He puts out some summer bangers you’ll never admit to liking and 2) There’s some serious demand for his tour merch, like the all new ‘Purpose The Stadium Tour’ clobber that just dropped at Selfridges.
Available at Selfridges, priced £115.
Ami x Eastpak Backpack
Serial collaborators Ami and Eastpak are at it again. Building on the pair’s 2016 partnership, Alexandre Mattiussi has created this sleek black backpack with pops of primary colours for some seriously cool first-day-back-at-school vibes.
Available at Ami, priced £145.
