If you’ve a city-break planned this summer, a pair of sandals can combat that inner city heat. Let’s be honest, that sweaty feet feeling is far from ideal. For beach-bound folk sandals are crucial, that’s obvious though isn’t it. Japanese label Suicoke make some unreal, high-performance sandals that’ll be just the ticket, the Vibram sole gives gives you the added benefit of all-day comfort.

Okay we’re stating the obvious here but if you’re off to someplace with a pool or a beach then swim shorts are a basic fundamental. The Patagonia Baggies are a classic part of the Patagonia product roster every summer season and handy features include side pockets, a snap rear pocket and a quick drying fabric that makes them ultra dependable.

With the sun beating down on you all day long, holiday headwear is essential. The sun takes it’s toll on that old cranium of yours, it’s important to look after things like ones head. Our cap offering is plentiful with a selection of different styles from Filson, Norse Projects, Fjallraven and Patagonia.

If you’re anything like us then packing the right number of t-shirts is high up on the agenda; one for each day and one for every evening – that’s basically a stack of tees. The Our Legacy Perfect T-Shirt is, as the brand say themselves, just perfect and it’s ideal for any holiday. One not enough? Shop all t-shirts.
