A Holiday Packing List for the Stylish Gentleman

Whenever I go on holiday I always like to keep my wardrobe simple - partly because I hate packing. With this in mind, I thought I’d share my tips on how to choose your wardrobe for the perfect British holiday.

One classic summer staple is the polo shirt: pack several plain colours such as white, navy, sky blue and also throw in a couple of nautical striped numbers for variation.

Take several pairs of cotton shorts in white, khaki and that ‘classic sailing’ colour Brixham red. A good piece of advice is to bring some long sleeve cotton casual shirts and roll the sleeves up - it looks quite ‘old-fashioned British’.

A pair of jeans is always useful, and make sure you take a navy blue cotton crew-neck pullover in case it gets nippy. Take one jacket - a navy blazer, something in cotton and not too structured - and some long cotton trousers; try khaki and white, as both work well with a blazer.

Finally - not forgetting this is a British holiday - an umbrella is essential because it's bound to rain.

While preparing for your British summer holiday, why not take a look at some of the items we are offering with this style in mind? Our range of polo shirts are ideal for those balmy summer days, and swimming shorts are available should you fancy a cooling dip.
