Summer tends to feel so full of possibility. Why not try a few trendy pieces on for size? Like prints. They’re totally having a moment in menswear this summer.

Essentially, it’s the stylish details that make this shirt a must-have, including the vintage-inspired pattern. Wear casually over dark denim or a slim, faded and ripped variety. For a modern spin on the classics, try kicking it in a pair of chukkas.
