Thou shalt wear a tropical shirt and suit


Here at the men commandments it's no great secret we love a good suit - although the sartorial staple can get a bit 'samey'. Well, we have found the perfect way to perk up a two piece for summer and all it takes is a tropical shirt.

Somethings shouldn't go together - strawberries and balsamic vinegar for example, but strangely they really do (please try this if you haven't already) The strawberry in our sartorial story is the tropical print shirt, a fruity little number you are probably used to pairing with shorts on your two weeks in the sun. But, suppose for a minute you layer it under something serious like a black suit (we can't think of a tenuous metaphor for balsamic vinegar and a suit so we will juts leave it out). The whole look feels fresh clean and great way to reinvent your hard working black suit.

We love river islands selection of tropical print shirts and at £25 it's a wise summer buy!

So go forth and let your shirt do the talking.
