Best seersucker clothes for men for Spring Summer 2024

Best seersucker clothes for men for Spring Summer 2024

Seersucker has been gathering pace in the world of menswear, and when I was prepping the other day for my client's shopping trip this weekend, I spotted it in nearly every store!

It's one of my favourite fabrics, as it's crisp and structured, doesn't screw up, and the dimpled look of the fabric gives it some interest without needing to do too much with your outfit....and who doesn't like that easy option!?

Here I've picked out some of the pieces I saw, we bought, and other pieces I think would make a great, versatile addition to your summer wardrobe.

Chino shorts for men for Summer 2023

Chino shorts for men for Summer 2023

It's shorts season.....or at least I thought it was until I looked out the window and discovered it's raining. But with any luck you're going away somewhere warm and sunny, and you'll be needing to update your shorts.

Standard chino shorts are a go-to option for most, and I've chosen here the ones that I know have a slight variation in fit, and that I've bought with past customers on their menswear personal shopping trips.

Summer sale picks - linen menswear pieces

Summer sale picks - linen menswear pieces

I've been having a "linen-fest" with my clients on summer personal shopping trips for men! We've bought linen trousers, shirts, suits, t-shirts etc, so I thought I'd do a round up on here of some lovely linen pieces I found on sale at Mr Porter. 

You might love or hate the crumpled effect of it, but there's no denying it's cool and comfortable to wear in summer. If you hate the creased look, then opt for a blended fabric instead which will help to disperse the wrinkling, but if you love it....then snap these pieces up whilst you can!

Men's smart / casual summer shoes for 2023

As summer is suddenly upon us, I've been tasked with finding clients some casual summer shoe options, that they can wear here, and for going on holiday. Mostly they prefer a closed in shoe, over sandals but want a change from trainers.......though I snuck a pair in here as sometimes you just can't beat them!

Here's what I've been recommending and clients have been buying on our personal shopping trips.....

Best & most comfortable travel trousers for men in 2023

Quite often when I do a personal shopping trip for men, clients have asked if I can find them comfortable trousers that don't crease, as they're travelling for business or pleasure. They still want to look smart, but want the trousers to be easy to look after during their trips.

I've been asked this on a couple of recent men's shopping trips, so in this post I share my go-to places to shop for these type of trousers.

Stretch shirts for comfortable dressing

Stretch shirts for comfortable dressing

Are you still struggling to get back to wearing 'normal' clothes after the casualness of working at home? I've found a lot of guys being drawn to a more comfortable version of what they were wearing before including their shirts. And that's where the pique or tech fabric shirt comes in.....the fabric is reminiscent of a t-shirt but the look has the smartness of a regular shirt, making an ideal combination....
