Emblematic of the shifting focus back towards more tailored styles, the vacation shirt has emerged as this season's transitional grail. Combining the conservative flavour of sartorialism with the devil-may-care streetwear agenda that has emerged as the dominant menswear conversation in the age of Abloh, the vacation shirt delivers on all fronts.

An everyday essential, the well-chosen vacation shirt effortlessly shifts from day to night; a vital style prerequisite amid the spontaneity of the summer months. Providing fertile ground for statements of individuality - from print and embroidery to cut and cloth - the vacation shirt offers a solid foundation for brands and labels to build upon, delivering in-season styles that will stand the test of time in your warm-weather rotation.
