Being the most unpredictable summer on record and thrown into day-to-day confusion of what to dress in, i have consciously decided not to relent into wearing a polo-neck and thick wool trousers when we are only in the latter stages August! Instead, i intend to keep the summer spirit on a high by introducing beachwear label Orlebar Brown to my casual weekend dress.
Since its launch back in 2007, OB has been doing swimmingly (couldn't resist) in the style and popularity stakes, and this season nothing is set to change. So many male folk seem to find all manner of ways to wear their ugly, unflattering shorts and look like a reject from the raggy-doll bin of modern day style, however no such faux par will materialise with these fine shorts.
The range consists of four British-made models with masculine names; Setter, Bulldog, Dane, and Beagle, all in a seemingly Fifties board shorts inspired design, but without the unforgiving high waistbands sported way back then.
