Diadora Sports Jacket
When it comes to retro sportswear, Diadora is one name that should be in every man’s starting 11. Case in point: this audacious chevron stripe track top. A modern reinterpretation taken from the brand’s ’90s back catalogue, wear as a lightweight summer jacket for a touch of classic streetwear style.
Isaia Corduroy Trousers
Believe it or not, there is such a thing as ‘summer’ corduroy. Thinner and more lightweight than the thick jumbo cords of winter, needle cord is an easy way to add a velvety edge to your look without overheating. Our money is going on these trousers by slick Italian tailoring brand Isaia.
Trunk Clothiers Washed Blazer
Having spent a decade kitting out London’s best-dressed men with the coolest brands from around the world, independent menswear store Trunk Clothiers has launched its first in-house collection.

From the Nike Cortez to the Asics Corsair, retro-style running shoes are some of the most in-demand in the sneaker world at the moment. Digging into its archive to join the pack, Puma has revived the racy Roma model, which rests on a gum sole and is finished with the brand’s signature formstripe.

It might have temporary in the name, but we’re hoping the wares from gender neutral and eco-conscious London brand Temporary Collective are here to stay. Its latest collection of printed tees have just been made available at Urban Outfitters, so sharpen your elbows and add to cart.
Patricks Crushed Diamond Face Scrub
Want your mug to gleam like a thousand diamonds? Just use diamonds, mate.

They say sunshine and water make a rainbow, and that’s exactly what you get with these swim shorts by Orlebar Brown. Created to celebrate Pride Month, all proceeds from sales go towards the Stonewall Gives Back Initiative, which is committed to eliminating social intolerance towards LGBTQ citizens throughout the world.
Zenith El Primero A384 Watch
It may be most famous as the year that man first reached the moon, but in the world of watches, 1969 is known as when the space-age design of the Zenith El Primero A384 was released. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, every component has been digitally reproduced so you can wear yours just like they did in the summer of ’69.
Mango Man Flecked Cotton Sweater
Summer knitwear is a tricky conundrum to solve. Get the colour, fit and fabric wrong, and you end up looking like an Eskimo gone south for his hols. This lightweight example from Mango is a lesson in getting it right, with its flecked green colourway, flattering slim fit and breathable cotton construction. Problem solved.
Awake NY Bulldog T-Shirt
The brainchild of former Supreme director Angelo Baque, streetwear label Awake NY is your chance to get a piece of hyped-up swag without having to flog your organs on the internet. We’re feeling the hazy shade of orange on this subtle logo T-shirt that will look great soaking up the sunshine from the pub garden.
Spoke Denim Jeans
At Spoke, the mission is to make everything in men’s wardrobes fit as well as a bespoke suit. Not the easiest aim, but with 200 sizes in its newly released denim line, one that’s surprisingly achievable. The jeans are the perfect summer weight too, at a healthy 12 ounces and available in two versatile washes.
Marks & Spencer Bamboo Shirt
Debuted on the shoulders of Oliver Cheshire in our recent summer essentials shoot, this striking shirt from Marks & Spencer is warm weather gear done right. Follow the models’ advice and slip it under a pastel pink suit or tuck it into some crisp mid-wash jeans for a bit of that relaxed ’90s style.
Topman Pique Pink Polo Shirt
When we say you should think about bringing more colour into your wardrobe, we’re not suggesting you go out and buy a neon green biker jacket. Take baby steps, like with the light shade of pink in this polo shirt from Topman broken, which has been made even more wearable with some black and white vertical stripes.
Carolina Herrera Kings Eau De Parfum
If you’re up for smelling like royalty this summer, grab yourself the latest scent from Carolina Herrera. Dubbed ‘Kings’, it’s a commanding concoction of black and pink pepper, cardamom, pineapple, and coffee. That, in the fragrance world, what we call a royal flush.
Ain’t nobody going to be mocking you as you strut around town in this handsome pair of moccasins. Handmade by Spanish label Diplomatic, they’re a real old-school treat although you might want to temper the tasselled frills with a more straightforward outfit up top.
Burberry Round Sunglasses
Given the choice, most guys would wear sunglasses this sharp all day every day if it didn’t make the boss think they were battling a killer hangover. Created by the king of British luxury, these Burberry frames with a keyhole bridge and matte brown acetate frame are certainly no eyesore.
Ebbets Field Jacket
US brand Ebbets Field recreates old baseball apparel from down the years, and the results make for some seriously home run menswear. We’re particularly fond of this lightweight zip-up jacket from the Montreal Royals’ kit that comes in a cracking shade of, you guessed it, royal blue.
Bang & Olufsen x Saint Laurent Speakers
The monochromatic and uber-sexy aesthetic of French fashion house Saint Laurent was always going to play well in the world of high-end tech. And so we get this speaker collaboration with the audiophiles at Bang & Olufsen, which is entirely unnecessary but, hey this is luxury fashion, when did paying through the nose for anything ever seem necessary?
