The intoxicating mix of serotonin-inducing sunshine, countless cocktails and all your friends in one place under the setting sun makes a summer evening unmistakable. But what to wear to the bar? Not all water points are the same and there is a risk that you will turn away from the best facilities when you arrive in the same flip-flops that you have smugly worn in the pub.
Dressing up for going out in summer is a smart minefield where you have to think about the environment and practical details, and a versatile Timberland fashion wardrobe is a must. Light jackets, interesting T-shirts, relaxed jeans, smart chinos, a jazzy shirt with a Cuban collar and a smart blazer – this will be the backbone of a stylish night on the tiles.
The Sports Bar
The culture of the nineties has returned to fashion in all its colors, and for the time travel style there is nothing better than vintage sportswear for pure nostalgia.
The sports bar is your chance to really drive into town by either taking out one of the classic sportswear brands of the era (Champion and Fila are two welcome, well-earned returns) or reaching deep into your closet to discover one of your brands of old football tops.
The retro soccer jersey may have felt naff a few years ago, but submission by the skatewear gang and stylish rappers like Snoop Dogg and Loyle Carner have brought them firmly into the realm of cool fashion. Wear your oversize shirt with a pattern as fancy as you can find it, and treat the loner designs like a printed shirt.
Then it’s about keeping the ball under control with neutralizing black or stone chino shorts. According to Kacamata Rayban, if you’re a little more casual, it might look like you’re queuing up for a kick-about. A pair of dad coaches will apply the finish for a 90s high, a very trendy leisure outfit.
