Our five essential items for your holiday suitcase

July 27th 2018

Whether your jetting off for a week escape to the coast or a last minuet city break, your time away is supposed to leave you feeling relaxed. So, we have taken some of that packing stress away by guiding you through our five essential holiday items.


The linen shirt:

People avoid linen because of it’s creasing element but embrace it because it is ideal for the holiday weather. With its breathable weave it’ll mean you stay cool. I have picked out a few of our linen range. A bold print strays your eyes away from the creasing, team it with a pair of our block coloured shorts and unstructured loafer for your day time look.

If the idea of creased linen causes you too much stress than our alternative is a poplin cotton shirt. With the same light weight fabric and breathable elements, it’s perfect for a hot day. Our button down casual range is ideal for your day to evening wear.

Staple polo:

A polo is an essential for your holiday suitcase, with so many daring shades out there sometimes it’s best to stick to a versatile colour. Our navy polo looks great teamed with a pair of shorts or cotton trousers. The subtle details add some interest to the plain colour.

Tailored shorts:

Our range of cotton shorts come in a tailored fit to keep the shape clean cut. We’ve added a turn up on the finish but with all alterations being done in-house and included the option is yours to have them chino finished.

The loafer:

Comfortable shoes are a must for you to really enjoy your holiday. The last thing you need is coming home with sore feet after a day of exploring. Our driving loafer with it’s soft structure and moulding suede leather are the perfect pair to take with you. Available in three different colours.

Panama hat:

A hat is essential for baring the hot weather, but it doesn’t mean you need to compromise on your tailored style. Our Panama hat is loosely woven to give you a breathable feel and is a great accessory to complete your holiday suitcase.

Whereever you are off to, enjoy and don’t forget your suncream!
