Cool garments that stand out. What else a sharp dresser could ask for summer?
It’s an open secret that men usually get pressed in their jacket during their leisure time on hot summer months. Looking sharp sometimes translates to feeling distressed into your own clothes. But, as I constantly mention, in order to look comfortable you have to feel comfortable. The attitude is the 70% of the style and a suffocated gentleman is not considered to be one of the most elegant figures. Besides, a relaxed and effortless looking guy is irresistible, isn’t he?
Thus, on my short getaway to beautiful Mani with loving friends, I opted for stylish garments that made me feel comfortable and cool.
Mani is a wonderful place.
It is impressive how wild the landscape is as all the villages are built on top of rocks. Characterised by its idyllic sea views, the savoury food and the chill vibe, Mani is a place you should definitely visit!
It is easy to get there by car, as it is not far away from Athens, making it ideal for even short getaways! I drove to Mani with the fierce, yet elegant Volvo XC60, that made the ride even more pleasurable. All five passengers were super-comfortable (although it is smaller than the XC90), while the driving experience was feeling safe, pleasant, and relaxed.
We stayed at a cozy hotel, Aegila Boutique Hotel, which is literally hanging above the sea. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. However, the highlight of this hotel is the fantastic sea view. From the very first moment, I felt so relaxed and comfortable that all the stress I had from my heavy schedule just disappeared!
Together with Christakis we designed two summer shirts made of linen to accompany me at my summer experiences, that would satisfy even the most demanding dressers out there!
Except for their elegant style, those shirts are refined, the construction is pretty flattering and they can be worn with almost anything! Dapper gentlemen want to be well dressed during their personal time, and these shirts definitely do the job!
The Linen Safari Shirt
Clean, classic and simple, the Safari shirt is the ideal choice when it comes to leisurewear.
Standing alone or combined with a polo shirt, the safari shirt provides the ideal amount of casualness, while looking attractively stylish and chic. Being made of linen, it looks and feels cool, while it can be combined with almost anything. From Bermuda shorts and jeans to tailored summer pants, the safari shirt makes for a versatile, yet dashing option.
The Linen Mao (Mandarin) Collar Shirt
The Mao shirt is definitely one of the most flattering options out there!
A garment that combines simplicity, style and character. The Korean shirt is a master key to be styled with mindfulness.
When it comes to leisurewear, a Mao collar shirt is a prominent choice, combining its refined design with its basic shape. Being extra flattering as it tends to make the neck look longer, provides a sexy yet effortless attitude to the person that wears it.
A Mao collared shirt can be paired with just about anything – from shorts to jeans, chinos and even tailored trousers.
