Anything from tshirts to polo shirts, thin collared shirts, shorts. Simple canvas shoes, casual sneakers, havianas thongs.. But depends on where you're going.
Summer has been dismal last several years.

- x1 flat colored havaianas
- x1 pair of ray bans (your pick)
Mix in a pair of board shorts and you're right

This is men's clothing, not boy's clothing or beach wear.

For summer you need fabrics that can breath. Lots of cotton and linen - jackets, pants, shorts & shirts. Start with buying things that are, or work well with, blue, white, pale pink etc and then build off that.

For shoes, driving shoes are popular at the moment but a pair of saddle shoes, canvas sneakers or leather boat shoes (sperrys etc) will be also be a great start to building a summer wardrobe.

Depends how old you are. I'd be looking for more casual button up shirts rather than tees, and I still think jeans have their place in summer. I'd try and work some linen in there. Really isn't seen enough for how well it suits our summer.

Definitely heading to American Tailors tomorrow, just in case there's something cool.

 

Still trying to find vests in the city - or even online - I can find black very easily, but even nav is proving difficult to find in a non-wool fabric.

 

Any ideas would be super appreciated!

Dude it's close to 40 degrees. I'd be sweating buckets in even denim jeans and a broadcloth shirt.

This is a discussion about mens clothing, tailored wear etc (what grown ups wear). No one is forcing you to wear it but its not the topic of discussion.

I for one don't come here to discuss havianas/flips flops and singlets. If it is your belief that only these items of clothing will keep you cool in summer, you have much to learn.

Settle down gents.

 

That customs debacle has fucked the international postal system. Everything is taking forever to arrive!

^ too true, including my new lot of 7 folds and knit ties. Though it's probably more just the time of the year in reality.
post #23558 of 52251

my meermins will be finally arriving tomorrow and was wondering what sort of cleaning and maintenance products will i need?

 

wax, chamois/ cloth, some sort of brush and water repellent spray?

According to the tracking, my Modern Tailor order got through customs and onto a truck in 8 hours. Just lucky perhaps?

What date were they posted from Naples?

post #23561 of 52251
I just got a delivery from Fragrancenet, ordered on the 13th. It arrived in Oz on the 23rd, so that seems pretty prompt.
post #23562 of 52251
I had this Boglioli arrive via UPS today. Bought on the 21/12.

Went to the cricket today.

SO. MANY. BOGANS.

Rather than Ray Bans why not consider Oliver Peoples and Moscot. Or else find who sells the best eye candy in town and check their range out. As for singlets you cant beat a wife beater or if you prefer to be cultured a Jackie Howe.Very versatile will suit pub, beach, opera in the domain and cricket. smile.gif

Myself I picked up a new pair of board shorts to go with the extra large beach towel the wife bought me for Xmas and intend to laze on Avoca Beach till the middle of January.
