GET PREPPED FOR SUMMER!

What goes around comes around. And the same can be said of the Preppy Look. Every couple of seasons this tried and tested style reinvents itself and becomes core again to the well-dressed guy’s wardrobe. It’s easy to wear and can be smartened up for formal occasions, yet at the same time, even the most casual combinations have a sense of sophistication that can crack most dress codes.

With just a few modern tweaks the “preppy look” is your all-access wardrobe to every occasion this summer. And who else does it better than Lyle & Scott!

BADASS BACKPACK!

Thanks to relaxed dress codes guys are opting for backpacks lately to schlep their stuff. Especially during summer when you’re on your bike a lot or heading off for weekend excursions, a backpack is unbeatable. They distribute weight evenly and the best kinds are like a hands-free version of a tote—simple, stylish and utilitarian. We’re not going to give you a load of crap about how versatile backpacks are or how you can dress them up with a suit and tie blah blah.

But what we will say is that they hold a ton of stuff, make easy work out of packing for your average work day or weekend trip and look pretty badass while doing it! Our favourite? Without a doubt this genuine leather beauty from Fossil’s newest collection.

TENNIS WITH A TWIST

 

To celebrate the new face, bulge and body of Tommy Hilfiger, the all-American brand took Rafael Nadal and a squad of genetically gifted brandmates to the hard courts of New York City’s Bryant Park for a game of strip-tennis. Nadal started the game in a wool suit, which he removed piece-by-piece as he lost points in a Jane Lynch–refereed exhibition match.

Given that he’s one of the best tennis players in the world, he didn’t have to show too much, but fortunately his TOMMYXNADAL ads show what we were missing. The campaign sees a cheeky Nadal taking it all off for the Tommy Hilfiger brand!
