Basic Summer Shirts – FEAT: Allsaints & boohooMAN

We’ve been hit by a beautiful and scorching heatwave in the last month or so and it doesn’t look any where near coming to an end – so here’s a choice of  3 hand picked basic short sleeved shirts to help you dress in style in the sun

First up I had to pick my 2 tailored Redondo half sleeve shirts. The Redondo half-sleeve shirt makes use of cropped sleeves that finish just above the elbow and can be rolled into a thick cuff. The black and white shirt can be matched with these tailored slim fit boohooMAN chino shorts in khaki to add that extra bit of smart casual look.

Buy this look

Allsaints /Redondo/ £65.00 

                                                    boohooMAN / Classic Chino Short / £13.50

                                 Hudson Shoes/ Benedict Cognac Loafer / £74.99 (sale)

Next up was a shirt I was kindly sent over by the guys at boohooMAN

Having never experienced boohooMAN but heard a lot of hype,  I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this fitted cotton shirt. To get a shirt of this quality you’d typically be looking at way over £50.00, so you can imagine my delight when I found out this was generously under £20.00. Matched again with my boohooMAN shorts and tanned Hudson loafers it makes the perfect outfit for having a city stroll or having food and drinks at your favourite bar or restaurant.

Thanks for looking,
