Altamont Waster shirt

The summer may be late this year in the UK but there’s no point in being stuck in the heat once it drops without some new threads. You know that feeling of pulling on a new shirt once the sun is shining out there and optimism tells me that we are close to actually having some killer weather on the way. We are bloody well OWED some right now.

With that in mind, the good folk at Altamont sent us over some new threads designed by Andrew Reynolds’. I grabbed the Waster shirt because it was like picking up a puppy and throwing it on my untanned skin. This 100% cotton yarn dye plaid is SO soft to the touch, it’s jokes. Ultimate comfort, a great custom cut and one happy summer’s day will be primed once the vitamin D from the sky finally drops.

I’m ready are you?

éS Pledge shirt review

es_pledge_shirt_blueThe Pledge shirt by éS should deal with a British summer on 2 levels. Over the last 3 weeks, the weather has blown, hot, cold, hot, cold and somehow this shirt has sat right in the middle of it all and saved my skin. Due to its 100% cotton lightweight design, this baby blue number has provided warmth when the sun has disappeared and has tackled the heat with the sleeves rolled up with ease.

It comes with a double lining so when you get it out of the wash it doesn’t fall apart and is easy on the iron. It also has minimal branding and a tasty front pocket if you need to stash smokes or cards.

éS have some great lines of clothing out right now and this shirt comes highly recommended this summer. Treat yourself this weekend, you only live once.
