Spring, as they say, has sprung, and that means it’s time to pack away coats, jumpers and chunky boots in favour of a few warm-weather favourites.
If, however, you’re lacking in anything other than long sleeves or are in short supply of, well, shorts, it needn’t be an expensive transition. Helpfully, British brand Ted Baker is offering shoppers 20% off both in-store and online for a limited time only. Running until midnight Friday 7 April, Ted’s Spring Shopping Event applies to a wide range of full-priced items including sporty polo shirts, unstructured tailoring and beach-to-bar essentials like swim shorts and sunglasses. Equally helpful is our edit of the best pieces to snap up below.
REACTIV Checked Bomber Jacket
Dismiss the bomber jacket at your peril. Menswear’s latest staple can be dressed up or down at will if the fabric is right. Despite its sports influence, the smarter crosshatch fabric and retro striped trims of the REACTIV jacket places it firmly in versatile territory. Was £199. Now £159.20. Click to buy.
OLDEN Linen-Blend Slim-Fit Trousers
Linen: not just for your nan on holiday. The OLDEN slim-fit trousers fuse a breathable, summer-ready fabric with a classic tailored shape, resulting in a smart wardrobe staple that’s more Portofino than pension book. Was £99. Now £79.20. Click to buy.
COOK Zip-Up Polo Shirt
From courtside classic to menswear essential, the polo shirt has seen more servings than a Federer quarter-final. But few are as sharp as Ted Baker’s COOK design. A zip detail instead of buttons adds a contemporary touch, while microdot flashes mean the monochrome colourway is anything but boring. Game, set and match. Was £59. Now £47.20. Click to buy.
MELVIS Textured Tencel Jacket
Don’t let the term ‘smart-casual’ confuse your look. Menswear’s trickiest dress code can be decoded with the MELVIS jacket. Jumping on the rise of relaxed tailoring, this unstructured blazer will sit just as pretty with tailored trousers as it does dark jeans. Was £279. Now £223.20. Click to buy.
DOUGGE Tasselled Suede Moccasins
Ted’s DOUGGE tasselled moccasins are the height of comfort and style. Equal parts classic and contemporary, the slip-on design is cut from supple suede with subtle contrasting stitch detailing in a sleek profile that’s perfect for smart-casual looks. Was £115. Now £92. Click to buy.
