Fight the last-minute packing routine this year by preparing your holiday capsule wardrobe in advance. No matter if your summer plans involve catching a flight to paradise or being in charge of the BBQ on your staycation, our holiday shop edit has the staples required to make the most of a long hot summer.
We’ve picked out 5 essential pieces needed for the season, it’s time to dig out the suitcase…
Can you really call it a summer holiday if a printed shirt doesn’t make its blue sky debut? We think not, which is why our Fistral Cotton Shirt should be the first thing you pack. Balancing smart-casual, this short sleeved shirt pairs its classic collar with an abstract print, in a choice of 2 colourways to take you from day to night. The timeless check print, however, has had a revamp for the modern man with our Pendine Check Zip Down Shirt, boasting the well known and loved print upon a silhouette with a zip-down fastening for wearing alone or layering with a fresh white tee.
The ultimate summer holiday staple for catching the ocean waves or taking a dip in the pool, which pattern are you choosing for your swim shorts pair? The blue hues of our Maenporth Swim Shorts are ready to rival the depths being dived into, with an elasticated waistband for a comfortable and easywear fit. Whereas the monochrome colourway of our Swanpool Swim Shorts brings modernity to your laps, complete with 3 practical pockets for goggles and other pool-side necessities.
For the brief intervals where you’re not going for a swim, might we suggest packing a substitute for the trunks? Our Military Cotton Shorts are ideal for wearing whilst chilling in the warm weather, with a mood-booting colourway, button & fly zip fastening and opportunity to top up your tan on the sunbed. If you’ve made a dinner reservation, our Military Cotton Tapered Chino Trousers are the perfect +1, with a suave tapered fit in soft cotton making for an effortless ensemble.
Up your graphic t-shirt game this season with bold designs, such as our Japanese Palm Graphic T-Shirt. This tee boasts a paradise inspired graphic on both the front and back, depicting a silhouetted scene of palm trees and blazing sunset - what better way to be transported to a summer state of mind? If you’re after a t-shirt with a more contemporary edge to it, our modish Bicycle Pixel T-Shirt takes graphic tees to 3D levels with a pixelated graphic brought to life in embroidery.
Soak up the rays with the quintessential sunny day accessory. Whether you’re old-school or contemporary, sunglasses are a must-have for your holiday packing as your passport. For the classic gentleman we recommend our Preppy Round Sunglasses for accompanying your city adventures and poolside endeavours, whereas for the modern guy our Aviator Sunglasses channel main-character energy from beach to barbeques.
