Look sharp

Casual short-sleeved shirts take a more refined approach with premium fabrication.
A subtle pattern is introduced with yarn dyed stripes across the Acre shirt in dusky tones, whilst the Bahamia comes in a breezy cotton chambray with embroidered detail.

Urban influences

The summer shirt takes an urban inspired edge this season. The Smokeys contrasts the crisp city styling of a classic Oxford shirt—think button down collar and darts to reverse—with a strong acid wash for a harder vibe. The tropics remain a constant summer print staple but are updated in darker industrial shades for an everyday wearable look. The Parana shirt is the one to go for, with its surf vibe and neat buttoned up collar replacing the traditional open necked resort style.

Micro patterns

Conversational prints come in fine lined detail. Check out the Runey shirt with its Aztec inspired rune design and light acid wash. Alternatively, the Dotter combines darkest indigo colouring with a dobby texture for micro-scale detail, complemented by its smaller curved collar.

Classic style

The checked shirt remains a summer staple. The Sharper comes in a mini yarn dyed check, enzyme washed for a worn-well feel. Alternatively mix it up with the Switches shirt, combining traditional checks with a dobby texture.
