What I really want this week is sleep. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bank holiday as much as the next colleague, but with deadlines looming – someone has check all this splendid MR PORTER content for typos – and you end up paying for it the following week. Sadly, you can’t put a sneaky 40 winks on your Wish List, so instead I’ve opted for five items, all freshly minted, with R&R in mind. Roll on May Day.

The shirt

Aimé Leon Dore
Camp-Collar Tie-Dyed Cotton-Blend Seersucker Shirt

This breezy camp-collar shirt by French-sounding New York brand Aimé Leon Dore distils the spirit of summer idleness. No, wait – gin, with tonic, is the spirit of summer idleness. No matter, this item is hand-dyed in tiny batches to ensure, like your craft grog, no two are alike.
