Tailoring has taken a new form seeing suiting and structured shapes heading in a new direction. Pants come with a sense of comfort with deep pleats and cuffed bottoms, whilst knitwear has taken a front seat. Add interest to your formal line up with subtle details in suiting to carry the look with ease.

There will always be a place for a variety of colour in menswear, but pattern and print is fast becoming an essential part of any mans contemporary wardrobe.

The majority of you gents would have undoubtedly purchased a checked piece in your time but this summer calls for a more casual take on the trend. Jimmy Bartel shows how to stay sharp at the same time by embracing the trend in shirting.

This month we have teamed up with the Polo Project, an online polo magazine defining a life of luxury sport and style.
Pack for an international lifestyle looking suave when it comes to dressing for Polo in the City and by the Sea with these essentials.
Polo in the City
The key here is to keep it light or bright. It’s no secret that menswear has fully embraced pattern and colour over the past few seasons, with many men becoming much more adventurous with their styling and clothing choices. Being an event geared around summer dressing when worn the right way, lighter shades and pop colour can be effortlessly stylish. If you want to go for something more bold such as a royal blue keep the tone in the blazer and use that as a base to work around for a masculine take on colour.

Polo by the Sea
Pick one statement piece and own it. Incorporating a statement piece can take your outfit from bland to impossibly cool. The best way to do this in order to keep the look classic is through subtle details. Try a blazer in a tonal check print double or an accessory in a punchy colour.

For a modern take on smart casual, keep it simple by combining tailored shorts with a clean collared shirt or a polo. If you are planning on hitting the beach, add interest to your swim shorts by throwing on a colourful tee and light sneakers. Remember: summer is the perfect time to be more creative with your style so don’t be afraid to experiment with prints and bold colour to match the cheer of the weather.
