A few weeks ago it looked like summer was all but cancelled. Well, revise your plans gents because holidays are back on the menu – and you might even be able to head abroad (if you choose your destination wisely). If you have booked a last minute trip, chances are you’ve left investing in new summer style essentials a little late too. But don’t fear – the Gentleman’s Journal Shop has just welcomed four new brands bursting with perfect holiday buys. Here’s what to add to your wish list now…
Turnbull & Asser
The cornerstone of any well planned wardrobe is versatile pieces that work in many different situations. So, while you might be buying a new shirt for your holiday, choosing a quality piece that also works under a suit is a savvy investment – which is where Turnbull & Asser comes in. The famed Jermyn Street shirtmaker has been a mainstay of the English gentleman’s wardrobe for over a century and even has a Royal Warrant from the Prince of Wales – and if it’s good enough for Charles, it’s good enough for us.
To get real bang for your buck you can’t go wrong with Turnbull & Asser’s classic linen shirts. Available from the Gentleman’s Journal Shop in timeless white and summer-ready turquoise, these lightweight, breathable designs are casual enough to be rough rolled with chinos but have enough structure to stand up to favourite two-piece back in the office. Likewise, a traditional striped shirt in blue and white adds interest to everything from shorts and jeans to tailored trousers.

New & Lingwood
If there’s one item of clothing that most men save almost exclusively for holidays, it’s white trousers. If you have yet to find your perfect pair allow us to point you in the direction of New & Lingwood. The heritage British brand has been a mainstay of the country’s best dressed men since 1865 and has poured all this expertise into its signature cotton chino, which feature a contemporary rise and gently tapered leg for the ultimate flattering fit. In fact, they’re so good we recommend you also buy them in navy – trust us, you won’t regret it. And what to pair with them? We’re rather taken with the bright blue hue of this tailored fit linen shirt.
