FINDING LIGHTWEIGHT & BREATHABLE SUMMER WARDROBE ESSENTIALS
Breeze through the heat and look great at the same time with our lightweight luxe linen shirts. Our temperature regulating linens will keep you feeling fresh all summer long, no matter how many poolside barbecues or dinner parties you attend.
We’ve proudly partnered with the Albini fabric mill in Northern Italy for nearly 20 years to produce essential wardrobe staples like our Port Charles Sports Fit Shirt. Cut from temperature-regulating linen and milled from world-renowned Normandy grown flax, this slim fit shirt is fitted across the chest and shoulder for a modern look.
If it’s too hot for a long-sleeve, grab something from our range of short sleeve shirts. Enjoy the summer-ready floral print and organically grown French linen yarns of our Big Glory Bay Sports Fit Shirt for a relaxed holiday shirt. Or you can match your Mile Bay Sports Fit Shirt with the Thompsons Cove Swim Short. Both featuring a playful and eye-catching twist on the classic palm print, the shirt is crafted from lightweight cotton yarns that are perfect for sunny summer days, while the swim shorts are cut from a lightweight, recycled-polyamide fabric that was milled in Europe.
CHOOSING SUMMER FOOTWEAR
Let’s start with our always popular Endeavour 2.0 Sneaker. Using high-quality genuine leather, the Endeavour boasts a minimalist design and sleek silhouette for versatility and distinction. Available in different colours, you can mix up your summer look however you please. Stay neutral with Pearl White and Onyx Black alongside our Coromandel Sports Fit Shirt, or step out of your comfort zone with the bold suede Taupe and our pinstripe Port Charles Sports Fit Shirt.
Another great option is our Brigham Street Boat Shoes, an iconic summer shoe style that can be dressed up or down. Made in Portugal, the leather upper is stitched through the durable rubber outsole, alongside leather laces to last season after season. Or you can try on a pair of handcrafted Palm Park Slides. Available in Tan and Bottle Green, these slides feature a flexible rubber outsole alongside a moulded leather-covered footbed for greater comfort.
