Packing for your summer holiday is always tricky. From the beach to lunches in town, the deck chair and drinks at the bar, you’ve got to pack a range of outfitsSo with limited suitcase space, it’s essential you take versatile, lightweight pieces that will be comfortable to wear but will guarantee you always look your best.

To help you out, we’ve created a list of everything you’ll need.

Men's Classic T-shirts Classic T-shirt in Cool Blue


The Classic T-shirt

A T-shirt is a must on holiday and you should look no further than the Classic T-shirt. We’ve been perfecting it since 1908 and it’s still handmade in our Long Eaton factory from the world’s finest Supima cotton. With a lightweight, smooth feel, it will keep you cool in the sun.

If you’d rather a thicker, midweight fabric, the Riviera T-shirt is also a great option. Both are available in a range of summer shades.

It was recently described by Matt Hranek of the WM Brown Project, as the best short sleeve polo shirt ever been made. Lightweight and versatile, it is perfect for taking on holiday. And of course, it was tailored for Daniel Craig when he played James Bond so you’re guaranteed to look great.

We have several other polo styles too. Our knitted polos are chunkier and have a vintage feel while our Organic Cotton Towelling Polos are ideal for the poolside/beach.
