I know that smocks have been around forever but it feels like they’re enjoying a particularly strong renaissance at the moment. Think of a decent brand and chances are that they’ll have a smock in their armoury this season. Which brings us to this sublime piece from Patagonia which has ‘post surf posing in Santa Cruz’ written all over it. Just imagine wearing this with shorts, sandals and some sea salt in your hair, you’ll instantly become king of the waves even if you’re sat outside a pub in Stockport. Made from 87% organic cotton this stretch cotton fabric features a DWR finish so it’ll keep you dry from sea spray or lager too.
