Summer's Must-Have Accessories For Men


From sunglasses to summer-ready shoes, we list the top accessories to pop in the suitcase before jetting off this season.

As the temperature rises, our repertoire becomes more relaxed and loose as we strive to stay cool in days of stifling humidity. Sharp dressing takes a backseat as we turn to T-shirts, shorts and everything linen, whether we’re vacationing at home or jet-setting to exotic climes for a summer break, but how do we reintroduce sophistication to our daily attire? Quite simply, it’s all in the finer details, namely those transformative finishing touches.

So, if you want to introduce something extra to your warm-weather wardrobe this year, ahead of taking off for a sun-drenched break, consider one – or all – of these five summer-ready accessories below.


Arguably the most important accessory for this time of year, sunglasses are vital for UV protection from harmful rays. Beyond their practicality, though, sunglasses also offer an opportunity to introduce statement to myriad summer looks. The Barstow in pink mix a classic design with exacting functionality to enhance your appearance and ensure you get noticed when strolling along the beach.


Getting footwear right during temperatures exceeding 24C can prove difficult. Leather shoes result in exceedingly sweaty feet, which in turn can cause cuts and blisters, especially if you’ve gone sockless. Sneakers aren’t always the most comfortable option either. Enter the espadrille. A summer staple, the Pablo in brown are designed with versatility in mind, so they look as well under shorts as they do with chinos and a linen shirt.


An essential for a day at the beach or picnic in the park, a tote provides ample space for last-minute packing while also looking the part, too. The Walter in black marries a sense of utilitarian purpose with a sleek appearance for a bag you’ll revisit every summer season.


For a different take on the standard woven belts that make appearance every time the sunny season begins, take things up a notch (no pun intended) with a suede option. The Whit belt is reversible, offering a handsome stone colour on one side and a more traditional tan on the other. Refined and tasteful, it’s the perfect tool to have in your arsenal no matter the outfit or destination.

the ceremony tie

Summer rarely passes without at least one occasion occurring where the dress code lends itself towards suiting. Whether you’ve got a friend’s wedding on the cards or a summer social on the horizon, it’s worth investing in a tie that will carry you through them all. The aptly named Ceremony in indigo is crafted from silk with a textured finish for a tactile take on tailoring accessories.
