Short and sweet

Men in short- sleeved printed shirts have long been as­so­ci­ated with mid­dle- aged men on va­ca­tion. Well, happy days to them: they have be­come ubiq­ui­tous this sea­son as de­sign­ers embrace trop­i­cal prints and de­tailed mo­tifs in their sum­mer col­lec­tions. Cool dads can re­joice in a crisp- cut shirt, prefer­ably one that nods to the boxy sil­hou­ettes of the 50s and 60s. Seen ev­ery­where from Prada to Paul Smith for the spring/ sum­mer 2016 menswear col­lec­tions, a spread col­lar harks to retro bowl­ing shirts and works well with a pair of linen shorts or pale blue denim jeans. For some­thing more lan­guid, tr y the pais­ley print op­tion from Gubb & Mackie with its fes­tive pal­ette and re­laxed fit, per­fect for sum­mer.

Gubb & Mackie Hawai­ian print shirt $195
