In a similar way to sunglasses worn with Gore-tex jackets I always think that a long sleeved t-shirt looks particularly good when teamed up with a pair of shorts. Creating strong base camp/surfer vibes it’s a look that says ‘yes it’s Summer but I’m still cool enough to keep my arms covered up’ kind of like the opposite of wearing a vest. This stupendous striped, cotton jersey number from Beams Plus is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. It even has a chest pocket to put your sunglasses/French cigarettes in, which is nice.
