Large Bright Floral Print Shirt by Guide London (HS2187) — £65

Guide London has established itself in recent years as one of our top brands. Their superbly made, creatively designed shirts have brought in a whole new range of customers to our store. This sumptuous floral print shirt made from 100% sateen cotton, from Guide’s famed Premium Collection, is our tip for your summer holiday. The pale colours suit the sunshine, and the elegant button-down collar and dark Navy lining completes the classy look.

Benton Retro Print Shirt by Gabicci Vintage (GW12) — £55 

Retro alert! Gabicci are the kings of vintage Mod-inspired menswear, and this new regular-fit short sleeve shirt is a welcome addition to their retro collection. Sitting proudly in our shop window, it features an all over “polo-mint” pattern, which looks equally stunning up close as at a distance. The pointed cut away collar is a nice touch, as is the retro trimmed contrast placket. Capping it all off, of course, is the signature gold “G”.

Caspian Retro Polka Dot Shirt by Merc — £40

Merc are world famous for their iconic Harrington Jacket (indeed, we sell it in four colours), but they are also adept at designing smart retro shirts. The all-over polka dot pattern stands out from our other #SS17 shirts, but the regular fit and classic button-down collar brings it down to earth. We usually recommend wearing this with a pair of jeans or smart chino shorts. The cotton construction ensures a cool, breathable fabric that will hold up even in scorching weather.

Hyatt Tile Print Shirt by Jiggler Lord Berlue — £60

Ideal for those “gym boys” seeking a snug fit, this smart short sleeve shirt by Jiggler Lord Berlue — our most talked about brand of this summer — lives up to its quirky reputation. Using a classic tiled pattern, Jiggler add their own unique twist with a contrast detail on the turn-back cuffs, placket, and collar. There’s also “unusual” stitching and button details for added character. The super-fine cotton material has a hint of stretch and is extremely comfortable to wear.

Short Sleeve Oxford Shirt by Lyle and Scott (SW605V) — £60 

Oxford shirts are always popular in both short and long sleeve versions. As one of our top brands, Lyle and Scott have supplied us with both — and the short sleeve shirt edition has sold extremely well. Simplicity, as always, is Lyle and Scott’s watchword, with a classic small button-down collar. Not many people know that the Oxford weave was pioneered in Scotland — the home of Lyle and Scott. This fabric is a washed Oxford in 100% cotton, giving it a much softer handle. Available in Riviera (pictured), White and Navy.
