TAILORED FOR SUMMER

The trend this summer is pleasantly simple. The buzzword? “Tailoring”. And by that we don’t mean wearing a suit (although there will undoubtedly be occasion to do so). Neither does it imply endless missions to the local tailor. We’re simply talking fit – less baggy, more streamlined. Stat.

And to make it easier for you, we collaborated with three esteemed brands – Ben Sherman, Pringle of Scotland and Country Road – that offer a stylish selection of everything you need to master this summer’s “tailored” look.

  • T-SHIRT, R199.95 AND JEANS, R849.95 BOTH JACK AND JONES.
    AVAILABLE AT EDGARS - STORES MALL OF AFRICA, MALL OF THE SOUTH & GALLERIA.

TEE TIME!

The t-shirt is the no-brainer wardrobe basic every man needs -loves to wear. Except it isn’t so basic anymore. We’re spoiled for choice. From V-neck to crew neck to Henley, the t-shirt is now the ultimate symbol of diversity in a man’s wardrobe. Whether you opt for stripes, graphics or plain colours, a selection of tees is your best bet for temperature control this summer.

As a general rule of thumb, print overkill is best avoided. If one component of your outfit features a vibrant print, it’s best to keep the rest of your look a plain and simple affair – so best to go with jeans. The colour? Entirely your call…

We’re enjoying the Jack and Jones selection of cool slogan tees and jeans.

eDition: TOM TAILOR SS16: THE DENIM SHIRT

  • SHORT SLEEVED DENIM SHIRT, R599.95, TOM TAILOR

BUTTON UP!

Despite previously being lost in the sartorial wilderness at times, the short-sleeved denim shirt is now here to stay and gathering steam fast with the style set.

While the denim shirt may have its humble origins in workwear, it’s no longer defined by it; this blue-collar staple is easily paired with everything from smart tailoring to shorts. But make sure you get the fit right – you don’t want it to be big and boxy, rather opt for a snugger fit with short sleeves that don’t hang over your elbows. That’s a style no-no, unless banana farmer your desired look. Oh, and be sure to give your gnarly winter elbows some much needed moisturising before exposing them to all and sundry.

Button up your button-down and nail the look with Tom Tailor.

WHY WE WEAR DENIM

It’s simple really. We wear them for the best possible reason—we want to—and because we’re driven by individual preference, there is no “one way” to wear them. There is no rule saying we have to wear this blue and not that blue—nor any rule we have to wear blue at all.

We have options, so many options and in the following pages we showcase the latest and greatest denim in all its rebellious splendour – brought exclusively to you by iconic denim brand – Diesel.
