The Pick: the polo shirt good enough for Bond

Sunspel is something of an icon: not only has the brand done remarkably well to rebrand as one of the coolest items for summer, with particular help from Daniel Craig as Bond in Casino Royale, but they’ve also managed to create some of the most stylish summer essentials a gentleman can buy. Gone are the days of branded, bright polo shirts, and here to stay are the days of something more subdued, quiet and fit for a gentleman. The key to styling the iconic Piqué shirt is to keep your entire outfit neutral, traditional and understated – the polo is an iconic piece of design and it’s best not to mix it with other, slightly edgier pieces. Make like Bond and stick to chinos, a smart summer shoe and the right pair of sunglasses.
