Needless to say, there are no shortage of menswear brands to choose from but, if you want to add a touch of class to your summer wardrobe rotation, the guys at &SONS should definitely be one of your first considerations for any forthcoming apparel additions. Their vintage-inspired wares are amongst our favourites here at Coolector HQ and the quality of their clothing really is second to none.
Check out our pick of 6 summer menswear essentials from &SONS that should be working their way into your wardrobe over the coming weeks and months:
&SONS Brandon Jeans (£125)
A solid, reliable and stylish pair of jeans is a must for any man’s summer wardrobe and they don’t come much better than these superb looking &SONS Brandon Jeans (£125). The Brandon jean is your everyday denim, worn in and worn out. Purpose-built for every occasion, &SONS have worked with ISKO denim, which is one of the worlds premier brands for sustainability, to come up with a lighter weight 12oz raw denim. &SONS have also added a 1% stretch to the weave to provide enhanced movement and flexibility. (£125)
&SONS Club Shirt Off White (£95)
For &SONS, the 1950s was the epitome of classic, timeless aesthetics when the world was treated to high waisted trousers, sports jackets and the iconic bowling shirts. Leaving the workplace behind, men in the 1950’s desired a new look when they got back home. Grey, 3-piece suits were hung up and vibrant, comfortable leisurewear with sharp, crisp lines became the norm and this &SONS Club Shirt in Off White (£95) is a celebration of that type of awesome apparel. The bowling shirt could be worn open or dressed with a pair of smart trousers and came in new and exciting colours and patterns, including Hawaiian prints. (£95)
&SONS The New Elder Henley Shirt Black (£95)
Lightweight, comfortable and versatile – what’s not to love about the &SONS The New Elder Henley Shirt Black (£95)? Traditional styling comes into its own with this classic Elder Henley Shirt from &SONS and each one is crafted from single jersey 100% natural raw cotton for a relaxed, extremely comfortable fit. Full-length sleeves, turn up fabric cuffs and three-button neck opening all combine to deliver a wonderfully authentic Henley Shirt that will be a go-to throughout the summer. (£95)
&SONS Virgil Chino Tan (£120)
The perfect example of a classic chino but one which has been completely reborn and reinvented in true &SONS style. They have delivered an entirely new type of chino, which takes its design influences from a classic 1950s style trouser. &SONS wanted to balance the smarter chino with a workwear aesthetic, using a medium weight cotton twill and adding in plenty of extra brass hardware, eye-catching details and a button tab turn up.
The build and finish of the &SONS Virgil Chino feels more like a carpenter’s trouser, with angled pockets, a pocket loop and heavier cotton than you’d typically find in traditional chinos. This gives them a robust, workwear style finish but with the cut and style of the iconic chinos we all know and love. (£120)
&SONS YARD Shirt (£120)
Laid back style is the order of the day with the awesome looking &SONS YARD Shirt (£120). This classy piece of apparel will keep things cool this summer and the fact it is crafted from chambray means it offers comfort on another level. It is a lightweight, utilitarian piece which comes replete with trademark pencil pocket, elbow patches and two breast pockets for EDC essentials. You can, of course, choose to ignore the rigid prison rules and dress down with rolled-up sleeves and layered over the equally as excellent &SONS Boxer Tee. To finish off the look, simply pair it with a the &SONS Indigo Blue Virgil Chinos or Tan Virgil Chinos to add contrast and complete this iconic look. (£120)
&SONS Carver Jacket (£140)
A lightweight jacket will be needed in the summer given how unreliable and, often cold, our June and July months can be and this &SONS Carver Jacket (£140) would be a top pick of ours here at Coolector HQ for those evenings when there is a chill in the air. This is a soft, versatile combination jacket which is crafted from 97% cotton twill and 3% stretch for comfort and enhanced ease of movement. It boasts a button-down collar, detail button cuffs, elbow patches, and a practical configuration of external and internal pockets that will have a space for each of your everyday carry essentials. Another impressive feature of this jacket is the angled down pockets for comfort and easy access. (£140)
