Ok so the actual bowling isn’t essential but the attire is. This bowling shirt from streetwear supremos, Billionaire Boys Club is bang on the money for your summer weekends. The bowling shirt with its relaxed fit, cuban collar and short sleeve design, is a retro classic.
This version has been reinvented with a hibiscus floral print, patch pocket to the chest and BBC Astronaut emblem. So fire up the barbecue and get your Tony Soprano on! But maybe have a brolly ready just in case, we are in Britain after all!
Top Up Your Tees
An everyday workhorse in the modern mans wardrobe, the humble t-shirt is often overlooked when it comes to freshening up your wardrobe. However a shortcut to breathe some life into those weekend outfits is adding a few new t-shirts. Go for bright colours and bold graphics for more impact.
Our pick is the new addition from Forty. The Breachan comes in an organic cotton so it is extremely comfortable whilst also boasting a sustainable construction. The striking monster icon takes centre stage with a new tartan print colourway. The fresh green on a classic white t-shirt makes it a quick and easy piece to throw straight into your weekend looks.
Call on Calvin
The new season arrivals from Calvin Klein have started to land and they’re looking seriously good. Some great colours, new iterations on their classic logo and new styles all come together to make what is shaping up to be one of the best off-duty collections for the season ahead. The stand out piece for us right now is the overshirt.
The style in general is having something of a purple patch of late. It’s gone from being an awkward inbetween to the perfect layering piece, the lightweight option and the oft sought after answer to the smart-casual question. If you’ve been on a night out with your mates lately and you didn’t wear an overshirt, you were probably the only one who didn’t get the memo.
This version from Calvin Klein has a cotton-nylon blend which means all day comfort and durability. The two patch pockets to the chest have a military feel while the warm ‘gingerbread’ colourway will slide perfectly into your wardrobe and will even carry your colourstory on into autumn. Invest now, wear for years to come.
If there’s a time to wear some bold colours, it has to be summer. And one brand you can always call on for some colour? Polo Ralph Lauren, of course. However, the style we’ve picked out for this weekend is perhaps not what you would expect. It’s not a pastel pink polo shirt or a turquoise t-shirt (both great options by the way).
This time we’ve gone for hoodie. Bold and bright horizontal stripes give this hoodie a fun and energetic feel. The broad stripes have something of the rugby shirt about them but the classic drawstring hood and kangaroo pocket in a contrasting navy ad a relaxed twist. This is a perfect style for your casual Sunday morning activities. Whether thats a walk in the park or a coffee in town, you’ll stand out for all the right reasons.
So it turns out you can go refined and have fun at the same time. Lesson leant thanks to Mr. Paul Smith and his latest sophisticated sweater. This one sports an all over zebra print; a nice little nod to the usually chest-adorning emblem. A monochrome colourway in muted charcoal grey and black and with a super-classic shape, this is the perfect piece to take you from the sofa to a soiree without a hiccup. Pair it with black jeans and a pair of crisp white trainers for a truly timeless out-of-office-outfit (OOOO? No? Thought not).
