POLITIX: Summer fashion for men SS21

The weather is changing and so are we. We're shedding our winter coats (and maybe a few kilos too) for polos and boardies. It's been a crazy year, but oh mate – the future is looking bright. So enough of the trackies and chill, splash into summer instead and BRING THE HEAT BACK.

As always, Politix has you covered. The secret, as with most men's style, is all in the details. The following men’s summer essentials can be mix and matched to create endless beach-vibing, cocktail-sipping, here-comes-the-sun combinations. Brought to you with a double dose of Vitamin D.

Perfect summer polo

Let’s face it, you’re no stranger to the polo shirt. The reality is though, it can be one of the sharpest and most versatile products in your wardrobe if you focus on the right style and fit. Politix polos work well with a pair of summer chino shorts, and their slim cut is the perfect partner with their half-lined summer blazers and suit jackets, perfect for a day-to-night look.

A cheeky chino short

If you’re only going to buy one item on this list, it’s got to be a couple of pairs of chino shorts. So many gents are still stuck wearing baggy, long cargo shorts and it’s the single biggest thing holding them back with their smart summer style. Politix chino shorts are made with BCI cotton, which supports more sustainable cotton farming, meaning you’re not only going to be left looking good but also feeling good.

The loafer

Can’t wear boots because you’re wearing shorts. Can’t wear sneakers because wherever you’re going needs to be a tad dressier than that. What’s a guy to do? The answer comes in the form of a loafer - an absolute summer essential.
Politix loafers come in a range of colours (including white, navy and tan) and materials (including leather and flyknit), making them the perfect addition to tackle any casual or smart summer occasion. One last thing, make sure you wear no-show socks!

The bold blazer

The beauty of a men's summer blazer is that you can take it beyond formal settings. Summer is about dressing things down for casual occasions, giving you a look that is still sharp and clean, but has a more relaxed, fashionable feel. Whether you smarten it up with a shirt or tone it down with a tee, it’s important to not be afraid to get bold and creative with different colours, fabrics and patterns. Team a blazer up with a polo, pair of chino shorts and some loafers for a winning combo.

Linen shirt and suit

While line shirts are mostly classified as ‘smart casual’, you can find linen business shirts for the office, too. In fact, they’re a great summer alternative when the weather heats up and you find yourself sweating on the commute. Look for long-sleeve linen shirts with a cutaway collar, trim fit and decent shoulder structure. Just ditch the tie and throw on your favourite suit jacket.
