Mango Man x Mistral Sweatshirt
Before surfwear label Stussy conquered the waves and then the streets, there was Dutch windsurfing brand Mistral. Founded in the ‘70s, it recently teamed up with high street chain Mango on a 30-piece collection of breezy and easy to wear sweatshirts, tees, windbreakers and bucket hats. Basically, everything you’ll want to take with you to the beach this summer.
Haeckels Seaweed & Geranium Hand Balm
The devil’s in the detail, you know. So while your outfit might be all shades of fire, something as small as chapped, dry hands could threaten to derail your whole look. Keep things in check with this cell-repairing, super moisturising hand balm from Haeckels, made with a mix of sea lavender and sage.
Topman Mid Wash Pleated Jeans
This summer, say yes pleats to pleated trousers. Or, if your style leans more street than Savile Row, opt for a pair of pleated jeans like this pair from Topman which will bring some breathing room to your weekend looks.
Dickies x Eastpak Backpack
Function first is the M.O. at both Dickies and Eastpak, so naturally the two brands make for excellent bedfellows. The resulting backpack, bag and bum-bag are as utilitarian as workwear can get with a crisp brown canvas and ergonomic straps to take a load off your back.
Carhartt WIP T-Shirt
The menswear gods at Mr Porter have sorted all your graphic T-shirt needs this summer, launching a collaboration with 17 of the brands on its books. Only the coolest of the cool have made the cut, including workwear pioneers Carhartt WIP and this collegiate effort.

The eye-catching design is the work of Gilbert Baker, the man behind the now-iconic multicoloured flag. Wear them with, well, pride.
Mango Cotton Linen Jacket
Sorry to break it to you, but summer isn’t all sandals and swimwear. A lightweight cotton linen jacket makes for a useful extra layer when the weather doesn’t quite call for a heavier top layer. Throw it over your best basics, roll the sleeves, and you’re good to go.
Mains Voyage T-Shirt
For those who don’t know, Mains is the London-based label by Skepta AKA one of grime’s best-dressed superstars. The brand has just dropped its second-ever collection inspired by the idea of a voyage, hence the scenic yacht pictured on this black T-shirt from the edit.
Zara Textured Bermuda Shorts
In most cases, shorts are designed for optimum comfort, and in the world of shorts it doesn’t get much cushier than this relaxed drawstring pair from Zara. With an eye-catching textured weave that draws the eye in, you can get away with just a plain white T-shirt up top.
Abercrombie & Fitch Authentic Eau D’Homme
The high street fragrance has come into its own in recent years. Leading the charge is preppy US brand Abercrombie & Fitch. It’s latest scent is another heavyweight, packing a punch with fruity notes of grapefruit and ginger before a roundhouse kick of suede and moss as the base. And all without having a naked torso in sight.

Turnbull & Asser Linen Shirt
Arguably the world’s greatest maker of men’s shirts (just ask James Bond), this season Turnbull & Asser has harnessed the power of linen for a selection of stripey sensations. And this isn’t just any old linen either, this is linen woven in arguably the world’s greatest textiles mill, Albini, in northern Italy. That’s a whole lot of greatness in one shirt.
Tod’s Suede Loafers
Come summer, there are all sorts of loafers doing the rounds – tassel, horsebit, penny – but through the loafer crowd this sporty pair from Tod’s appeared. The super-luxe suede upper makes way for a far more casual rubber outsole and a woven cord providing a nice little change-up in the middle.
Hugo Boss Sweatshirt
The logo trend has been a thing for some time now, so what’s next? Well, maybe just take after Hugo Boss and its reinvention of the wheel with this backwards logo sweatshirt, cut in a flattering slim fit and a comfortable 100 per cent cotton construction.
Ralph Lauren Earth Polo Shirt
Add this to the list of innovative, previously unthinkable and well just plain insane tech making the fashion industry more sustainable. Ralph Lauren has crafted its iconic polo shirt from a fabric made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles, which is dyed using a completely waterless process.
