Words by Mr Chris Elvidge, Senior Copywriter, MR PORTER

The European menswear calendar kicked into gear this June, with shows in London, Milan and Paris - plus Pitti Uomo, the biannual trade fair in Florence - giving us a first glimpse of what's in store for next spring. But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves, especially now that summer has decided at last to grace us with its presence.

It was pocket squares at the ready at Pitti, where the breezy, unstructured tailoring that we've been waiting for months to wear finally had its moment in the sun. Soaring temperatures made life tricky, but men such as Mr Simone Marchetti showed us how to keep cool without compromising on style. The street style scene offered up its customary blend of the sublime and the ridiculous when the fashion circus descended on London for the ever-expanding London Collections: Men, and meanwhile the party circuit provided us with a number of exceptional examples of evening attire - chief among them Mr Jake Gyllenhaal, who looked flawless at the Tony Awards in New York.

To see these men, and the others who made our top eight this month, click through the gallery, above.
