Resort-Ready Polos and Tees

Resort-Ready Polos and Tees

Rumour, aka meteorological forecasting, has it that the UK is due a 'Saharan blast' in the next week or so, which could well prompt the first BBQ of the season. It'll also be a chance to break out the summer wardrobe proper, and test-run your resortwear kit before you head off for your holidays, wherever they may be.

Travelling in style is an art form that needs to balance comfort, panache, and versatility in order to pack light and pack smart. Two menswear garments that give you all of these things are polo shirts and t-shirts, both boasting the versatility to be worn casually but also in a smarter context with tailored trousers or even relaxed tailoring.


The Summer's Key Polos

This season at Oliver Spencer, we really had texture front and centre of ours minds when we were conjuring up what a great polo shirt collection would look like. The silhouette is classic and rarely changes with the exception of slightly different collar configurations, but where we wanted to be different is with textural cloths that would give our polos more depth and dimension. That's why we've used a really interesting and diverse array of tactile cloths - think terry towel corduroy, rich waffle knits, crochet knits, and a silky soft cotton and modal blend among just some of the styles we've created for this summer.


The terry towel fabric is especially great for resortwear given that it's lightweight, absorbent, and fast-drying, so perfect for lounging around the pool in. But more than that, it's excellent at bringing texture to your dressier summer looks, layered underneath and unstructured blazer for example.

Some of our polos come with the classic three-button placket while others have a buttonless resort collar for a more laidback appeal. Whatever style you prefer, you can be guaranteed that each one will add a swathe of summer styling options, whether you lean on a more sartorial aesthetic or if you prefer a modern preppy look for example.


The Great Summer T-Shirt

One of the most dependable pieces of menswear kit for the summer has to be the t-shirt in all its myriad guises. It is the glue that sticks your wardrobe together, able to be worn with literally every piece of clothing that you own. But what makes a great summer t-shirt? Style is of course subjective, and while some people might prefer brand/logo t-shirt styles, we like to take a more classic approach to our summer tees, focusing on quality of fabric, depth of colour, and simplicity of pattern. The poster boy of our tee collection is the Conduit t-shirt, which is a brilliant all-round style constructed from a variety of premium cotton cloths. It has a relaxed fit that's good for everyday wear. We have produced it in a number of soft colours, as well as three striped options in organic cotton.
