BLAZERS

An open smile, a good haircut and a blazer is all you really need to get you access “where e’er your heart desire”. Once temperatures start rising, it’s time to pull out lighter-weight options, like linen and seersucker varieties. Try lighter colours, you’ll find them a refreshing change.

PATTERN

Your sartorial-savvy need only extend as far as; “ Its the summer of pattern” and you’ll be fine. Followed by “Oh, all patterns – floral, paisley, gingham, ombre and a load more” and you’ll be impressive. But don’t get caught up in the moment, with pattern, there’s a lot of room for error – we advise one piece and keeping everything else solid.

COLOUR

We don’t mean a lighter version of your blue jeans.  Don’t be afraid to stock your wardrobe with some much-needed color. A pair of chinos, a button-down, a golfer, sneakers – they all work as colorful alternatives to the usual dowdy rotation.

THE BUCKET HAT

The fisherman’s friend is back. Big back. There is, however, only oneway to wear it: with rock solid confidence and a touch of nonchalance. If you are considering taking the plunge, we suggest sticking to neutral colours that are easier to wear.

THE MAN, HIS SKIN

Shane Burnell is a feast of visual intrigue. His tattoo-covered body has flung him onto the covers of magazines and the pages of fashion editorials world wide. I use the word flung with intent – that’s rather how it’s been for Shane over the past few months.

I don’t think anyone, let alone he, could have imagined how quickly he’d become celebrated, or that the years of leers would so rapidly turn to cheers! Beneath the rather intimidating wrapping is a really likeable guy, unaffected by his rise in popularity – a man comfortable in his own skin. I like this most about him.

  • Pallabrouse Baggy Explorer in Dore-Mojave Desert; R1600

BOOT UP FOR SUMMER

While we admit some days in summer are just too darn hot to wear boots we also agree that there are also occasions, like taking a road trip or exploring the great outdoors, when no ordinary shoe will do and a technical boot is just too chunky.

Durable, stylish and cool to wear, the Pallabrouse Baggy Explorer is available in 3 different colour-ways, Desert, Rubino & Black so you’ll definitely find one to suit your taste.

SUMMER LOVERS

At last, the holidays are here! the communal sigh of relief is audible as laptops shut down, office doors close, suits are abandoned and brogues kicked off as weary feet slip happily into flip-flops. Just because you’ll be living like a road tripping’ bum for a couple of days doesn’t mean you have to look and smell like one.
