Summer may have finally landed (however brief it may be), which means it’s time to ditch the jumpers and bare some skin. It’s pretty hot out there this week, giving us the opportunity to strip down to shorts and a t-shirt. The basic shorts and tee combo can be worn in many a social situation, from drinks with friends to an afternoon at the club, it’s a pretty versatile look.


Here at John Anthony we have three styles of shorts; swim, casual and tailored. And to go with them, some great new t-shirts that have just been added to the website. We’ve put together our ¬†favourite pieces for 3 different excursions; the beer garden, the club and the beach. The beer garden is a place of friendly banter and pints of cider, so keep it casual with a pair of chino shorts in a fairly neutral colour, and a simple graphic tee. Now the mariner, golf club or any other establishment where jeans are frowned upon, would call for the tailored short and the classic polo shirt. Think American classics and don’t be scared to brighten it up with a vivid coloured top and patterned shorts. And lastly grab your swim shorts and a vest for a day at the beach. Get some bold patterns in there with florals or nautical stripes, and if you’re still in need of a few more weeks in the gym, throw a vest on for the ultimate beach look.

A little tip when wearing shorts; keep the short shorts for the beach, some people just can’t handle that much….
