I say old chap, if I’m not mistaken I do believe it’s summer! Well it is for the moment, and we’d better make the most of it whilst the sun is shining. So what’s a respectable gent to wear when it’s too hot for jeans and combat shorts just won’t cut it for the office, or anywhere else for that matter? The cotton chino of course.

We love these promenade trousers from Reiss which will look great worn with casual tailoring and a slight turn up to get those ankles on show – just add a pair of loafers to finish the look. Made from a stretch cotton they’re a much lighter alternative to jeans and will instantly give your outfit a summer feel.

Now all you need is that straw boater and a jug of Pimms and you’re good to go…

Reiss Promenade Trousers £79.
