#500: Italian Summer Blues.

Our #500 series explores the best ways to spend £500 on menswear each week. This week we’ve opted for lightweight Italian summer pieces.

The warmer summer weather makes us think a lot more about the fabrics we incorporate into our looks. Feeling comfortable in the rising temperatures is just as important as remaining stylish.

We’ve chosen two tried and tested fabrics ideal for the warmer climate and combined them to recreate a classic Italian style.

Club Monaco’s Connor Slim-Fit Linen Trousers are cut in a contemporary slim fit and a timeless stone hue gives them a distinctly Italian feel that will work well with both weekday and casual looks. Linen trousers are becoming more and more popular these days and this pair of trousers offer a great quality, flexible piece for a very reasonable price.

Beam Plus’ Slim-Fit Double-Breasted Seersucker Blazer offers a lightly more formal option over the unstructured blazer option. Softly tailored from lightweight navy seersucker, this double-breasted blazer is finished with sharp notch lapels, glossy mother-of-pearl buttons

Paul Smith’s Navy suede tassel loafers compliment the statement double breasted blazer well and are a great summer footwear option with their moccasin-style toes and stacked natural leather soles.


Club Monaco Slim-Fit Linen Trousers: £105

Beam Plus Slim-Fit Double-Breasted Seersucker Blazer: £205

Paul Smith Suede tassel loafers: £143 (Sale)
