Summer dressing, by and large, is a relatively straightforward undertaking. As long as your provisions include a steady supply of T-shirts, a couple of pairs of shorts and perhaps a linen blazer or two thrown in for good measure, you’ll be able to handle almost anything sunny weather throws your way. Or if not anything, certainly an extended session in the pub beer garden.
This, alas, is where you may run into trouble. Wearing more or less an identical warm-weather uniform to the male masses is no fun, which is why it pays to distinguish yourself. When it comes to menswear, the details matter. It might be a tired-out truism, but that doesn’t make it any less true. And so, to aid you in your endeavours, we’ve put together a cheat sheet of the accessories, shoes and even scents that’ll help you separate yourself from hordes of similarly dressed gents. Let’s get cracking.
