Men in short-sleeved printed shirts have long been associated with middle-aged men on vacation. Well, happy days to them: they have become ubiquitous this season as designers embrace tropical prints and detailed motifs in their summer collections.
Cool dads can rejoice in a crisp-cut shirt, preferably one that nods to the boxy silhouettes of the 50s and 60s. Seen everywhere from Prada to Paul Smith for the spring/summer 2016 menswear collections, a spread collar harks to retro bowling shirts and works well with a pair of linen shorts or pale blue denim jeans. For something more languid, try the paisley print option from Gubb & Mackie with its festive palette and relaxed fit, perfect for summer.
