This Farah T-Shirt has flown out since arriving at Apache for Spring Summer 2019!

Choose your size from Small to Extra Large.

Farah “Hawk” Short – £55

When we unveiled this new season chino short by Farah, it was love at first sight. Not only does it look fantastic — with a unique “shapes” pattern for SS19 season — but the 8oz fabric is remarkably lightweight and ideal for wearing throughout the summer or indeed away on holiday. Don’t take our word for it: just ask the dozens of our customers who have bought a pair and rave about the comfort and quality! Farah have included some nice little touches, such as belt loops (see our range of quality saddle-hide belts here) and button back pockets for added security. Our waist sizes are as follows: 30, 32, 34, 36 & 38 inches.

Also new for Spring Summer 2019 is a similar Farah chino short made from a sumptuous twill cotton fabric and boasting a fun summer print. It’s the same regular comfortable fit as the other Farah chino, also from 30 to 38 inch waist. If you’d prefer a plain chino short by Farah, we stock them in in three colours!

Lyle & Scott Cargo Shorts — £60

If you’re after a pair of summer shorts with more of a practical edge, Lyle & Scott is your best friend. This new cargo short in Stone and Navy ticks all the boxes for a stylish and practical short, great for long walks and hikes on your holidays or simply for those who prefer the extra security and convenience of having multiple pockets. Made with a hint of stretch for added comfort and flexibility, there are six pockets in total: two button back pockets, two side pockets and two velcro-sealed leg pockets. Sizes are the same as the Farah shorts – 30 to 38 inch waist in 2-inch drops.

Lightweight Spring Jackets — £40 & 90

Lightweight Overhead Jacket by Lambretta | Pocket Jacket by Lyle & Scott

Even in summer it’s essential to have a lightweight, showerproof jacket to throw on when required. We’re delighted to unveil a new overhead jacket by Lambretta, an enduring vintage brand that has been fantastically well received on its return to Apache this year. The sporty contrast sleeve panels and half-zip design bring back memories of 1970s/80s football casuals gear, with a bit of Mod heritage thrown in. But the highlight is a classic “kangaroo pocket” adorned with the iconic Lambretta logo. There’s also an adjustable drawstring hood to keep the elements out. At only £40 this jacket is unbelievably good value! Sizes range from Medium to XX Large.

Our second pick is a stunning spring-weight jacket in Dark Navy by Lyle and Scott. Boasting two large front pockets big enough for a large smartphone, a drawstring hood and a quality mesh interior lining. There’s also a front zip and pop button combo for double protection against the elements. Sizes range from Small to Extra Large.

Lambretta T-Shirts — £20

These Lambretta T-Shirts have proven immensely popular with Apache customers since arriving a couple of months ago. Sporting an iconic “Scooter” print with a classic London scene, it’s 50 years of heritage distilled into one T-Shirt! Choose from two colours in this print (Navy and Carnelian Orange), or take a look at the other patterns in the Lambretta “Scooter” T-Shirt range. All the T-shirts have the world-famous Lambretta target logo on the sleeves. Sizes range from Small to XXX Large.

Jiggler Short Sleeve Shirt — £60

Welcoming another flamboyant set of new Jiggler Lord Berlue shirts, these short sleeve Bobby Dazzlers are a smart casual essential for your summer wardrobe. Featuring an incredible attention to detail that we’ve come to expect from the Manchester brand, all three shirts are made from 100% superfine cotton in a popular semi-tailored fit (as opposed to a true slim fit that many guys find too tight.) These shirts also boast contrast turn-back sleeves to match under the placket and collar, as well as a hidden under-collar button down detail to keep things nice and smart. Choose your size from Medium to XX Large.
