Get ready for summer guys, with our men’s summer style. Yeah, it’s not enough to just pull on the old shorts and T-shirt, is it? And do you have to wear that drab, dark blue suit all through the summer months? No, you don’t.
So take some tips and get some new men’s summer style in your wardrobe.
Let’s start with something simple – a new short-sleeved shirt and shorts. Keep your shorts simple, and then complement them with a bright and bold shirt. You need one or more of these in your life.

It’s Scotland, so men’s summer style must also include some sort of windcheater/waterproof/coverup with every outfit, right? Wear with sandals, with pride. But no socks please!
Be bold, and bright. Mix contrasting colours and patterns, add a man-bag, add some bold loafers. Have fun with it!
Go all out with big, bright, bold patterns, and prints. Patterns on everything from your shorts to your shoes; your tops to your pocket squares! Be loud!

Think outside the predictable men’s summer style box when it comes to suits. Summer means shaking off the dull and the drab. Pick a light suit, mix it up with a bright shirt, and simple, subtle accessories. Stylish!
