This season we’re getting hands-on with the fabrics to freshen up your wardrobe. As a valued Sparks member, here’s your exclusive look at the key textures and patterns right now.
Just like the blooming of a sunflower, seersucker popping up in the shops is a sure sign summer is on its way. The fabric’s bumpy surface will keep you cool in the heat – look out for it in classic shirts and shorts as well as more unexpected bomber jacket styles.
Linen shirts and shorts are par for the course come summer, but this season we’ve reworked the lightweight fabric in sharp suiting and more casual pieces such as this classic Harrington. Linen you can wear now – what’s not to love?
As much as we’d love to say you’ll be in T-shirts and shorts for the foreseeable, inevitably the sun won’t have his hat on all the time. Ward off an unexpected chill with a textured cotton jumper – the summery yarn has both cooling and warming bases covered.
Not expressing your personality with how you dress is ‘for the bird's’ – be bold with fun prints that’ll soar when basking in the sun and will lift your mood on even the gloomiest days. Combine with complementary block colours to set the pattern off nicely.
Not to get too techy on you, but slub fabric’s irregularly woven tones are one of the secrets to refreshing the old classics we all know and love. We’ve pepped up polos and given checked shirts a new lease of life – it’s a subtle but significant update.
Perennially popular, jeans are a cornerstone of most men’s wardrobes. But warmer weather calls for an airier alternative to your rugged winter weight pairs – these lighter, brighter jeans are every denim addict’s go-to for spring and beyond.
Nothing says summer shoes more than a spot of suede, whether it’s a sporty sneaker, slick slip-on loafer or desert boots made for walking. While great for sunny days, we’d always recommend spraying them with shoe protector, you know, just in case.
