The best men’s summer suits for 2023
From relaxed suits to slip-on shackets, here’s how to look stylish without breaking a sweat.
Dress for excess
With festival season in full swing, you’ll need a trusty arsenal of separates to see you through in style, come rain or shine. A throw-on-and-go workwear jacket in a heat-friendly cotton-linen blend lends a utilitarian vibe. Pair it with one of the hottest sartorial tickets of the season: a knitted polo, plus wide-fit technical trousers – a discreet nod to the oversized cargo pants of yesteryear.
Hybrid working has paved the way for a new era of corporate attire, bringing to the fore softer fabrics and cut-for-comfort silhouettes. A double-breasted blazer still means business but a stone colourway will keep you cool on the commute, while mandarin collars and wide-leg trousers won’t stifle. Slip on a pair of stylish yet comfortable canvas trainers to take you to after-work drinks, the weekend and beyond.
This flattering slim-cut, mid-blue version pairs exceptionally well with pastels – in this case, lilac pinstripes and lavender socks – while a micro-floral print tie adds a romantic flourish. Switch up shoes and accessories to keep your look fresh as the calendar commitments mount.
Life’s a beach
Let loose on holiday in soft-cut linens that beat the heat no matter how high the temperature climbs. Elasticated shorts offer next-level comfort – this sunset pink pair comes with a coordinating blazer that can be slipped over a casual T-shirt, smartening sightseeing getup into sundowner-worthy attire. Complete the look with a catch-all beach tote and cult favourite Teva sandals.
