Three of the Best

Shirts for Summer

It's hot out. Your shirts, though great, are a little heavy for the sunshine. 

Every British summer's the same. It's cold. It gets hot. It gets cold again. Then it gets unbearably hot and none of your shirts are light enough for the weather.

While rolling your sleeves is a good, if a little too Cameron-esque, solution, there comes a time when you have to bite the shirting bullet and get yourself some lightweight shirts. Here's three picks to help you on your way.

1 Michael Bastian (above)

Linen shirts are tough to get right. Get it wrong and you'll look like an extra from a '90s R&B video. Get it right and you'll be (literally) the coolest man in town. This Michael Bastian shirt (Mr Porter, £240) will do the job. It's cut slim to avoid the billowing that linen is infamous for.


2 Gitman Vintage

Fabric wise, seersucker is the slightly friendlier cousin of linen. Forever associated with the US prep movement, it's versatility means it's easily worn as a jacket, shirt or shorts. This Gitman Vintage number (End, £125) is smart enough to be able to wear to the office. It'll be perfect to hide any sweat issues during your work probation meeting.



3 Gant Rugger

The summer weight oxford is a wardrobe staple and this time around Gant Rugger have made the most desirable version(Superdenim, £75). The lighter weight cotton means it'll be easy to wear and the tail means it'll look great untucked. And, unlike the other two choices, you won't upset any satorial purists if you wear this in the office.
