The time for warm weather dressing is here and finally time to break out your summer shirting. The summer shirt has had a bit of renaissance in recent years. It is in many ways superior to the t-shirt in hot weather - its open weave style, wider, open collar and slightly smarter appearance lends for a look that is cooler in every sense of the word.
Orlebar Brown was born out of a very simple concept. That you shouldn't have to get changed heading to the bar from the pool. While holidaying with friends one year founder Adam Brown noticed this annoyance and decided to rectify the situation and so the Orlebar Brown swim short was created - more of short that you swim in than what has become known as swim shorts with details from tailoring like side adjusters - inspired by swimwear worn by the jet-setting super-rich of the 1960s.

Dad's are notoriously difficult to buy for. Always saying that they don't need anything while at the same time a steady stream of Amazon parcels arriving to the house usually tells a different story. No matter what they say a nice gift that they'll use is always appreciated.
British Summertime is here and that means sunshine, BBQs and beach for sure, but there is also another great pastime that has seen a surge in popularity in recent years in all age brackets and that is camping. Being at one with nature and much needed time away from computer screens and social media - just the stillness of the outdoors sharing moments with the people we love. In terms of what to wear - outdoor wear has often been given a bad wrap for being unstylish and unflattering but those days are long gone.
It's taken its time, but summer is finally here and we couldn't be happier. We're fully stocked with exciting new releases from the brands doing some really cool things in the menswear space right now. We decided to put together this summer edit for you so you can get some ideas of how to step up your style this summer.
Clarks have been making quality footwear since 1825, making them one of the longest running shoemakers in the world. What's interesting about Clarks is they are universally loved by, it seems, pretty much everyone. From The Wu-Tang Clan making a entire song dedicated to the Wallabee shoes to their Desert Boots being included in The Design Museum's 50 Shoes That Changed The World - there seems to be no end to the adoration for the brand and its with good reason.
Versatility has always been something of great importance to the brand. They want you wear their clothes and they are designed to be enjoyed. The Camber Jacket is a great example of this. With it's lightweight build and neutral colour palettes it keeps that biker look and high-quality without the added weight. Sleek lines, neutral colour palette and made from water-resistant micro poly fabric - this is a great option for year round style.
