Everyone needs to let loose sometimes. And isn’t that what summer is all about? To do that the right way, nailing a laidback look is a necessity. But adopting a casual look doesn’t mean you actually have to be basic.
It’s quite the opposite. Summer is the best time to rock a vintage inspired short-sleeved shirt à la Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or Christian Slater in True Romance. No need to go all the way to Miami or Hawaii to lift your fits with bold, colourful prints. Wherever you are and whatever time of day, a bold shirt should be your summer staple.
From silky bowling cuts to tropical camp-collar shirts, we round up the best men’s short-sleeved shirts to stand out in style on your holiday.
