With summer comes a lot of great things; holidays, travel, more time with friends and family, and a wardrobe update of course. Check out some of our top summer fashion essentials for men, to keep you covered for nearly all occasions this season…
TID – No.1 Watch
Stockholm-based TID launched their first watch design, No.1, around five years ago. Its minimalist design has endured and remains a fail-safe option for everyday wear. No.1 in the classic black and white combination works well worn casually or more dressed up too. Durability and quality is delivered through its mineral glass, stainless steel case, Miyota 2035 Japanese quartz movement, and 5 ATM water resistance.
Assembly Label’s Ocean Swim Shorts work just as well out of the water as they do in. The shorts are made from a quick-dry cotton, and with their elasticated waist and drawcords, make for a super comfortable pair to have this summer. The Ocean Swim Shorts are available in a few different neutral colours, but you can’t go wrong with classic black.
With a transparent crystal Italian acetate frame and resin coated brown gradient lenses, Sunday Somewhere’s new Ned sunglasses are one of our top summer fashion essentials for men. They sport a pretty classic shape but offer a contemporary edge. The sunnies look modern and will see you through this season easily, from weekend wear to beach afternoons to the daily commute.
L’Estrange London’s 24 Hour Trousers are ideal for summer. They look super smart and sleek, with an elegant tailored fit. The pants are made from a cotton blend and have a bit of stretch in them so you can move easily, plus, the waistband has a hidden elastic and drawstring for further comfort. Worn just as easily with sneakers and a t-shirt as they are with a collared shirt for dressier evenings, these a highly versatile pair of pants.
Linen is one of the best fabrics to wear in summer; it’s lightweight, breathable, and wicks away sweat so keeps you feeling fresh for longer. Sydney-based Venroy has perfected the art of making modern, stylish pieces from linen. Their Shirt is one of our go-tos in summer. The relaxed yet tailored cut of the shirt makes it ideal for casual wear. The Linen Shirt in the clay colourway is a great neutral and versatile option.
It protects you from the sun, it covers a bad hair day, and it just straight up looks good. The Saturdays NYC Canyon Bonded Hat is a total summer fashion essential. The cap is made from a light nylon and features an unstructured fit. It’s available in a couple of classic colours like black and navy, but we like the bronze shade this season.
The Rollies Jean by Rolla’s features a slim fit that’s designed to be rolled up at the cuffs. Made from a stretch cotton, they’re comfortable to wear and move around in. The jeans are great to have on hand in summer for evenings out, the occasions you can’t get away with shorts, or even the odd brisk night.
These iconic sandals by Teva are an excellent example of function meeting form. With a refined silhouette, the sandals feature an easy strapping system to keep them on your feet, cushioned EVA footbed for comfort, and an anti-microbial treatment. Being quick dry means you can wear the sandals while traversing rivers or walks along the beach and you won’t have uncomfortable, wet feet all day.
Outerknown are well known for their commitment to practicing sustainability through their clothing manufacture. They’re leading the charge in the fashion industry, which is one of the biggest polluting industries in the world. The brand’s Grown Colour Tee is made from 100% Peruvian Organic Cotton. It comes pre-washed down, so feels soft and lived-in from the first wear.
The neat thing about the LA-based House Of Future is that not only do their sneakers sport classic silhouettes and styles, but they’re made from sustainable materials. Their Original Low Top is crafted from micro leather, which is a synthetic material that feels just like traditional leather. Not only is it a more eco-friendly option, but it’s also easier to keep clean, thanks to a finish that’s applied to it, which reduces water staining and mitigates the need to polish the leather.
