Spring Shirts: Printed to Perfection
If you're a fan of the brilliantly bold, or just fancy something a tad more adventurous, stand out from the crowd with a powerful print like this tropical PS Paul Smith Printed Palm Tree Shirt. If it's your first venture into loud prints, balance your look with navy and neutrals, or if you're a seasoned print connoisseur turn heads with a clashing printed T-shirt worn underneath. Sometimes, bolder is better.
A man of many talents— the striped shirt has solidified itself as a must-have for all men, regardless of their print preference. Classic and refined, this effortless rag & bone Fit 2 Stripe Oxford Shirt works just as well with chinos or tailored trousers and brogues, as it does unbuttoned over a casual T-shirt and shorts. Update your stripes with fresh colour combinations and layering multiple textures for a considered modern look.
Take a (small) step up from stripes in the style stakes, and you'll find the much-loved check. Once associated only with workman, the checked shirt has skyrocketed in ambition and snuck itself into our everyday wardrobes with its easy-to-wear with anything persona. To make sure your shirt is more light and spring-y, than lumberjack, opt for checks that mix in neutrals and lighter tones, like this Barbour Langness Checked Shirt.
