Men’s retro trainers

Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

White trainers are the perfect partner to chinos, shorts and even a suit (yes, really)

A white crew-neck T-shirt. Smart navy chinos. A grey cashmere jumper. All classics that go with pretty much everything. But the one wardrobe hero I keep coming back to is a pair of simple white trainers. When I wake up devoid of outfit inspiration, I always know that, whatever I pick, my trusty trainers will invariably work. All summer long I’ll be kicking about in this retro style, wearing them with slim-fitting trousers and smart shorts. Worn with trainer liners, they’ll quickly become your go-to style, particularly with your more casual looks, but trust me, they’re so versatile even a sharply cut suit in deep navy will get a different spin when combined with these sneakers.
