When it comes to dressing for a holiday, few nations have a reputation as bad as the Brits. Ridiculously baggy board shorts? Guilty. Flip-flops in the city? Guilty. And the worst of the lot – the dreaded semi-clear carrier bag used in place of a beach bag – also guilty, your honour.

A Man’s Guide To Looking After Your Feet

Before you slip into sandals this summer, it’s of the utmost importance to get your ugliest appendage in order. We’re talking about man’s boney, hairy, callus-ridden feet, which after six months hidden away from the world are probably not fit for public display.

Fortunately, as well as visiting the professionals for a pedicure (during which crusty heels are scraped down, ingrown nails removed and skin softened with various soaks and ointments), there are a few steps that can be taken at home to have more handsome hooves.

How To Choose The Perfect Sunglasses

Sunglasses are not just a style statement – they can attract or repel, be a mirror or a shield. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then perfectly suited sunglasses aptly deserve to be called ‘shades’.

But the business of selecting a pair is equally shady. You can be blinded by the range of styles available these days, and that’s before factoring in variables such as materials, colour and budget. Before breaking out into a sweat, use this guide to shed some light on the process.

The Biggest Men’s Footwear Trends For Summer 2017

Men’s shoe trends change at a pace that’s more baby steps than seismic shifts. Sure, weekly trainer drops can put spikes in the graph but, by and large, what you slide your feet into this season won’t be massively different to what you lace up the next.

That’s not to say, of course, that they won’t change at all. Here are the trends to know to stay one step ahead of the game.

The Men’s SS17 Jewellery Guide

While the modern man may be able to suit himself for a summer wedding or preen himself for a first date without a problem, there is one aspect of style that all too often leaves him scratching his neatly groomed head and furrowing his freshly plucked brow: jewellery.

And to be honest, we get it. It’s too feminine, too difficult, too much. Better to step out bauble-free than get it wrong and look like a walking Christmas tree. But don’t dismiss it completely. Follow these rules and the right accessories will pull together and enhance even the most basic of outfits.

The Best Capsule Wardrobe For Every Type Of Holiday

In your head, you’re George Clooney in Up In The Air, turning minimalist packing into an art form akin to clothing origami. In reality, you work frantically until the last minute to get everything finished, throw a random armload of stuff into a suitcase while the meter on your taxi to the airport is ticking and eventually arrive at the resort to find you’ve brought a cashmere roll-neck, a cummerbund and one ski.

Or you insure against all possible scenarios by taking every garment that you own, only to give yourself a hernia lugging the bag up to the check-in desk where you’re shaken down for half your spending money and forced to put your underwear into your hand luggage in full view of your fellow passengers.

To become a packing ninja, you need not only consider the kind of holiday, the climate and the activities you’ll be undertaking, but also the fact that you can cover those bases with only the barest, most multipurpose essentials. Or you can just read our guide to a capsule wardrobe for four types of trips. Take the core city break look below and throw in extras if you plan to visit a beach, gym or reps-approved superclub.

But first, washing. It might be the sort of domestic concern you want to get away from, but for the sake of doing one load during your trip, you can basically take half the clothes that you would have to otherwise. Hotel laundry costs might not be cheap – but they are compared to excess baggage fees.

Core Look: The City Break

Best-suited for short hops to sunny foreign cities, this capsule wardrobe can also be used as the base for almost any summer escape plan.

Since you’ll likely be visiting venues where chino shorts are not acceptable, it’s wise to take at least one full-length pair of khakis, with a woven leather belt to hold them up. That’s not to say that jeans won’t ever fly, of course. But denim is relatively heavy and informal, so it’s not conducive to packing light or keeping cool. Versatile chinos are first-class for economy, but if you really want to take jeans, wear them on the plane.

Despite being a classic, your holiday khakis shouldn’t be beige. While light colours are seasonally appropriate in warmer months, they can look out of place when it gets dark, or in more formal settings. If only packing one pair, make them navy: smart but still summery.

Up top, not all warmth can come from the sun. Sweatshirts and hoodies are clearly casual and also thick, so take up room (unless worn in transit). A lightweight knit in cotton or merino wool is smarter and will give you more bang for your cubic inch, whether packing it or stuffing it into a tote because you’re too hot, or in case it gets chilly later.

Similarly, a chambray shirt is a smarter alternative to a T-shirt, but can be worn open over one as an overshirt or under a knit and jacket. Layering like this is the smart way to negotiate changeable temperatures from day to day (or day to night) without exceeding the baggage allowance.

Style guides are fond of telling readers that a blazer is ‘essential’. It can be very handy indeed, but it can also feel a bit fuddy-duddy and besides, whether you pack it or wear it through check-in, it will invariably wind up more wrinkled than Madge from Benidorm’s dishcloth. Then there’s the issue of waterproofness, or lack thereof. On the flipside, a pac-a-mac, while practical, won’t exactly go down a storm in more upmarket establishments than the Solana.

If you can’t have it both ways, one space-saving alternative is to shell out for a ‘shell’ blazer in a technical fabric. Unlike wool, cotton or linen equivalents, they’re water resistant, will happily scrunch down into a suitcase or tote and come over a little less catalogue model. You can also get shell bomber jackets if a blazer is still too stuffy.

Speaking of which, there aren’t many places that you can’t go now in trainers, especially if they’re clean, white and classic. But if proper shoes are required, loafers are in the holiday spirit: they’re more laid back than lace-ups, not to mention easier to slip off in security. (Again, always wear your bulkiest shoes to travel.)

Add-On 1: Beach

Even if you don’t plan on wearing much else, two is the magic number when it comes to packing swimwear: one to wear while the other airs. They don’t have to Costa packet either, but it’s worth bearing in mind that tailored swim shorts will not only look smart enough to pass as shorts away from the water, but also have proper waistbands and side adjusters to prevent you ‘hanging out’ anywhere else.

You will need to put a top on at some point, though. For maximum versatility and therefore minimal volume, T-shirts should be plain or nautically striped at a boat-push, and crew-neck, not V. Aside from being douchey, vests are effectively pointless. If you’re catching some rays, go topless; if you’re covering up, shield your shoulders.

To take stuff to and from the beach requires a bag; specifically, a canvas tote. Light and unstructured, it’ll take up minimal weight and space in the case, if you don’t use it to carry on your duty-free haul. Just make sure the straps are long enough so that it can be carried on your shoulder and not in the crook of your elbow. (Not a good look.)

Finally, to take yourself to and from the beach, you’ll also need some suitable footwear. Consider espadrilles, they’re more substantial than flip-flops so better suited for walking more than a few feet, less ‘German tourist’ than leather sandals and they keep gnarled, hairy hooves out of sight of fellow diners when out for a meal.

Add-On 2: Exercise

A holiday doesn’t always mean a rest week. After all, time and gains wait for no man. But unless partaking in a sport that requires specialist gear such as cycling, you really don’t need to pack loads of dedicated gym kit.

Your plain cotton T-shirts work perfectly well as workout attire. (Wear the one from the day before, as long as it doesn’t stink too badly.) And provided that they’re not adorned with pink flamingoes, your swim shorts can also pass as, well, shorts. Retro running styles lend themselves to this especially well, but if it makes you feel better then you can buy ‘gym to swim’ shorts that are expressly designed for this purpose.

Trainers are the sole technicality: while you don’t want to take a pair just for exercise, equally you don’t want to clump around the whole time in ugly running shoes. Flat-soled Converse All-Stars will suffice for getting a pump on, but don’t have the cushioning for a jog along the coast. Knitted trainers are the interweaving of performance, aesthetics and ventilation.

And if all your socks are secret, then it doesn’t matter whether they’re ‘sports’ or not.

Add-On 3: Lads (lads, lads, lads)

This is basically just a beach holiday with added banter. But if partying, then you might want a shirt. Just not a ‘party shirt’.

Once the preserve of flight attendants, short-sleeved options have really taken off in recent years. For bonus fashion points, go for one with a Cuban (AKA camp or cabana) collar, and a pattern that can’t be looked directly at without sunglasses. If too much of a shrinking violet to confidently rock a full-on floral, then a dark background or monochrome colour scheme can help soften their appearance.

Some trousers and trainers wouldn’t go amiss for going out. Again, chinos will be cooler than jeans, especially in the current relaxed, cropped fit that (helpfully) will also allow air circulate. Either way, you don’t want your legs to resemble badly packed sausages being shipped to Love Island. In addition to the options previously mentioned, slip-on canvas Vans are ideal for effortlessly transitioning between beach, bar and mortally hungover breakfast.

Last, but by no means least, make sure you take plenty of protection. And we don’t mean sun.

10 Versatile Summer Outfit Combinations All Men Should Master

There are two things most men concern themselves with when getting dressed in summer: firstly, ‘Do I look good?’ And secondly, ‘Can I be sure I won’t sweat my balls off in this?’

Getting kitted out for long, hot days (and balmy nights), requires modular outfits that allow for individual pieces to be swapped in or out depending on the time of day, temperature and the place you’re headed.

To help stay cool, look cooler and not get caught out in an unexpected rain shower, here are 10 no-fail formulas to see you through to autumn.

Bomber Jacket + Breton Stripe Top + Trousers

A naval staple at its core, there’s no arguing the Breton stripe is a menswear classic that skews more casual than smart. But there’s something about its French heritage that makes it so much more refined than a piece of fisherman’s kit.

Combined with lightweight tailored trousers, a long sleeve Breton top works just as well for a dinner date as it does on a stroll to ease the hangover the next day.

Dress it up with a smartly-cut bomber jacket in the evening or keep things to just one layer in the midday heat.

Next Breton top and jacketNEXT

Lightweight Suit + Grandad Collar Shirt + Trainers

Staving off sweat is about more than shedding as many clothes as legally possible, it’s also about flexing a little sartorial savvy when it comes to things like suits.

When the occasion calls, don’t suffer in a stiff three-piece. Instead, opt for a lightweight option (in materials such as cotton or linen blends) and ideally a brighter colour that won’t absorb UV rays.

If the dress code permits, like in the case of a smart-casual wedding, team with a grandad collar shirt that not only adds on-trend appeal but also omits the need for a tie and gives you a bit of breathing room around the neck.

Lightweight suit with grandad collar shirt and smart trainersWHISTLES

Short Sleeve Shirt + T-Shirt + Chinos

Just like pinstripe suits, short-sleeved shirts get a bum wrap on account of years of abuse at the hands of guys who should have known better.

Rather than rolling them out in baggy fits with over-the-knee cargo shorts, use them as top layer to add a point of interest to an otherwise classic menswear duo.

Chinos and a T-shirt provide a solid foundation to put to work anything from a floral Cuban collar number to a vertical stripe shirt.

Better yet, you can dial up the formality of this look by buttoning the shirt up to the top two or three and tucking it into slightly more formal trousers.

Blazer + Shirt + Cropped Trousers

Feeling the heat in the office? Cut loose with a look that’ll let you breathe.

Small tweaks – like choosing a trouser that lets you feel the breeze on your ankles, losing the collar on your shirt or simply undoing a couple of buttons – helps keep sweat at bay without receiving a finger wag from the boss.

What’s more, you won’t need to pack a change of clothes for the post-work round either.

Men's lightweight blazer and cropped trousers worn with no socks in summerREISS

All-White + Bomber Jacket

Bronzed like menswear don David Gandy? No? Then you’d better start catching rays (or faking it), because all-white isn’t going anywhere.

Once the preserve of 1990s boy bands, head-to-toe white has been topping the menswear trends charts for a few seasons now. And for good reason: it’s easy, light-reflecting (and therefore sweat-preventing) and works just about everywhere.

A white vest and shorts might come off a bit Magic Mike, but change tack with a white T-shirt and chinos and you’re onto a winner.

If not comfortable with a white-out approach, mix and match shades of cream, stone and off-white, then spike your look with a piece in a darker colour for contrast. Especially useful if you’re nearly as pale as the whites you’re wearing.

Men's all-white summer outfit with darker bomber jacketNEXT

Mac + Tee + Jeans

A typical British ‘summer’ might best be described as grey and sweaty, but on the rare occasion it’s bright and breezy, reach for something seasonally appropriate that can still stop a chill in its tracks.

Cue the mac. Lightweight, modern and slim cut for a flattering shape, it promises coverage without the cumbersome bulk. Opt for one in a brighter colour such as cobalt blue, camel or burgundy and you’ll steer a staple that’s traditionally reserved for the rainy season into something more summer-ready.

Here, ripped jeans and a T-shirt roughen up the mac’s clean lines, but it can just as easily be teamed with a linen shirt and cropped trousers for an equally versatile, albeit more squeaky clean take.

Selected Homme 2016SELECTED HOMME

Field Jacket + Polo Shirt + Cropped Trouser

Like all menswear pieces lifted from the military, the field jacket comes packed with all the versatility a man needs to meet the demands of modern life. (As well as generously sized pockets for pretty much everything you’ll need this summer: sunglasses, a bottle of SPF and a can of ready-mixed rum and ginger).

Give the jacket a look that’s more smart-casual than desert squad by flanking it with pieces that skew slightly more sartorial – like a polo shirt and tailored cropped trousers.

Rounded out with a pair of minimal trainers, it will be your new go-to for city breaks and country getaways.

Field Jacket worn with a polo shirt and cropped trousers - summer men's style inspirationTOMMY HILFIGER

Linen Blazer + Polo Shirt + Trousers

There’s no disputing that these days a T-shirt is a happy bedfellow with tailoring, but sometimes you need a little more structure to your silhouette.

A polo offers the best of both worlds: it’s lightweight and breathable like a T-shirt, but (crucially) comes with a collar, helping cut a slightly smarter figure without having to resort to a stuffy button-down shirt.

The beauty of this look is you get all of the polo’s sportswear appeal worn solo with some trousers, but can leverage its more sartorial side by slipping into an airy blazer. Riviera style made simple.

Brunello Cucinelli SS17 linen blazerBRUNELLO CUCINELLI

Harrington + Lightweight Knit + Coloured Chinos

There’s a school of thought that says bright colours don’t work for much other than the beach. But we say that’s a little reductive (and very, very boring).

It’s not so much that colour can’t work in a variety of situations, it’s that only certain colours can. A lime green T-shirt won’t mesh as well with a suit as it will with petrol blue swim shorts, but that’s not to say racing green wouldn’t.

This look mixes two versatile colours – bottle green and burgundy – with a neutral base (in the shape of a classic beige Harrington jacket) for a mash-up of hues that cuts through the monotony of menswear’s most overused colours.

Men's summer Harrington jacket fashionBURTON

Denim Jacket + Tee + Jeans

Sure, denim is a hardwearing fabric that does its best work when standing up to rough conditions; but it has a valid place in summer, too.

That said, squeezing into a pair of raw jeans isn’t the smartest move on a brow-drenching day, but lose the weight and you’ll keep your cool. Lightweight denim (ideally under 12 ounces) is more flexible and breathable than its heavier counterpart, letting you keep that rock edge without overheating.

Combine your jeans with a washed denim jacket and a T-shirt for an off-duty look to boss the weekends in. Pro tip: button the jacket all the way up for a slightly smarter finish.

For its latest charity initiative, the Kooples has teamed up with the Elephant Family preservation charity, creating this silk-screened tee featuring the French brand’s current frontman Waris Ahluwalia in the process.

Available at The Kooples, priced £65.

Justin Bieber Purpose Tour Hoodie

Though he may be a thundering idiot at times, there are two things that can’t be denied about Bieber. 1) He puts out some summer bangers you’ll never admit to liking and 2) There’s some serious demand for his tour merch, like the all new ‘Purpose The Stadium Tour’ clobber that just dropped at Selfridges.

Available at Selfridges, priced £115.

Android L Will Keep Your Secrets Safer

And when we woke up, we had these bodies. They’re like, except I’m having them! Oh, I think we should just stay friends. You’ll have all the Slurm you can drink when you’re partying with Slurms McKenzie Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry?

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. I just want to talk. It has nothing to do with mating. Fry, that doesn’t make sense. Quite possible.

It is nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.

You guys go on without me! I’m going to go look for more stuff to steal! You guys realize you live in a sewer, right? Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? If rubbin’ frozen dirt in your crotch is wrong, hey I don’t wanna be right.

Fetal stemcells, aren’t those controversial? You don’t know how to do any of those. What’s with you kids? Every other day it’s food, food, food. Alright, I’ll get you some stupid food. You won’t have time for sleeping.

Maybe you don’t like your job, maybe you didn’t get enough sleep.

Oh yeah, good luck with that. Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? Explain that. Leela, Bender, we’re going grave robbing.

A Bicyclops Built For Two

I love you, buddy! Yep, I remember. They came in last at the Olympics, then retired to promote alcoholic beverages! The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

  • I saw you with those two “ladies of the evening” at Elzars.
  • For the last time, I don’t like lilacs! Your first wife was the one.
  • But the flesh is spongy and spanac bruised?

Oh, all right, I am. But if anything happens to me, tell them I died robbing some old man. When will that be? Well, take care of yourself, Han. I guess that’s what you’re best at, ain’t it? I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Progress is a nice word.

Daylight and everything. This is the worst part. The calm before the battle. I saw you with those two “ladies of the evening” at Elzars. Explain that. Leela, Bender, we’re going grave robbing. Who am I making this out to?

It’s nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you. Who am I making this out to? Shut up and get to the point!

And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to, in which case, you mean while for the love of God, don’t not do it!

Doomsday device? Ah, now the ball’s in Farnsworth’s court! You mean while I’m sleeping in it? Shut up and get to the point!

I’ve got to find a way to escape the horrible ravages of youth. Suddenly, Going to the bathroom like clockwork, every three hours. And those jerks at Social Security stopped sending me checks. Who am I making this out to?

They came in last at the Olympics, then retired to promote alcoholic beverages! I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died. This is the worst part. The calm before the battle.

You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like.

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. Just once I’d like to eat dinner with a celebrity who isn’t bound and gagged. I guess if you want children beaten, you have to do it yourself. Interesting. No, wait, the other thing: tedious.

I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died. Quite possible. We live long and are celebrated science. And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to.

Ah, computer dating. It’s like pimping, but you rarely have to use the phrase “upside your head.” Who am I making this out to?

You mean while I’m sleeping in it? Throw her in the brig. Michelle, I don’t regret this, but I both rue.

Daylight and everything. I just want to talk. It has nothing to do with mating. Fry, that doesn’t make sense. So I really am important? How I feel when I’m drunk is correct?

Good man. Nixon’s pro-war and pro-family. And then the battle’s not so bad? And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to, in which case, for the love of God, don’t not do it! Shut up and get to the point! Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? I’m sure those windmills will keep them cool.

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. I love you, buddy! Please, Don-Bot look into your hard drive, and open your mercy file! You guys aren’t Santa! You’re not even robots. How dare you lie in front of Jesus? Hey, whatcha watching? That’s right, baby. I ain’t your loverboy Flexo, the guy you love so much. You even love anyone pretending to be him!

Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.

Kids have names? That could be beautiful soul sitting naked on a couch. If I could just learn to play this stupid thing. No! I want to live! There are still too many things I don’t own! Yeah, I do that with my stupidness. You can see how I lived before I met you. Do a flip!

Hello Morbo, how’s the family? I’ve been there. My folks were always on me to groom myself and wear underpants. What am I, the pope? I love this planet! I’ve got wealth, fame, and access to the depths of sleaze that those things bring. We’ll need to have a look inside you with this camera.
