MWD: SUMMER PICKS

24.04.13

With the sunshine (finally) beaming through the windows as I write this, what better time to share my top picks from our SS13 collection? We're approaching my favourite time of the year and The Menswear Diaries will have all the tips you need to stay stylish throughout the warmer months. Here's what I'll be wearing from now until autumn...

Who says you need to fade to grey in the boardroom? Inject a dose of tropical cool into your workwear with our Pinot blazer and trousers in sage. I'd team mine with a crisp white shirt, brogues and a leather document wallet.

My next pick comes courtesy of our Nineteen Seventy-One SS13 collection. I love how Jamaica in white features an all-over bold leaf pattern; it kind of reminds me of zebra print. With menswear's obsession with safari-inspired style over the last couple of seasons, this shirt is completely of-the-moment.

My final pick from our SS13 collection has to be the Pritchard blazer in sea foam blue which I'm wearing in the above picture. Although sharp and elegantly-crafted, the piece's refreshing colour keeps it contemporary and unique. I've worn mine over a charcoal polo knit as I wanted to keep the emphasis on the jacket's vibrant hue.

I feel like my summer edit wouldn't be complete without mentioning this song. Daft Punk's brand new track Get Lucky, which features Pharrell on vocals and Nile Rodgers on lead guitar, will without a doubt be mine and many others' soundtrack of summer 2013. If you haven't heard the song yet, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and get lucky...
