Relatively new to the menswear space, Stockholm-born A Day’s March has found a solid spot at the forefront of the expanding industry. With just 5 years experience, it’s down to the premium materials and a focus on perfecting the staples that has brought the label to such success. The brand, run by Pelle, Marcus and Stefan, is favoured by men around the globe for its shirting. A wander around the brand’s Soho store reveals satisfyingly heavyweight overshirts hanging alongside delicate, summer-ready linen button-downs. While the label’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection features the signature array of shirts and overshirts, look to the swim shorts and minimal suede sneakers to pad out what is shaping up to be your best summer wardrobe yet.
The overshirt is a styling weapon that each summer arsenal should incorporate, it provides free reign when it comes to layering – an essential skill when the warmer seasons roll around. With just a crisp basic white T-shirt as the foundation, let an overshirt embellish and characterise your look. Throughout the new season, A Day’s March disprove the common misconception that an overshirt must be a heavyweight piece, interchangeable with a jacket. Reach for the Lightweight Linen Original Overshirt on warmer days and when you’re a little less convinced by the weather conditions, opt for the Heavy Linen Patch Pocket Overshirt. Both pieces are tailored to a relaxed fit and feature multiple patch pockets for all of your valuables.
Inspired by the iconic M65 field jacket, the label’s Oyster Ripstop Field Jacket is as practical as it is stylish. A range of large flap pockets punctuate the front while the ripstop cotton speaks of adventures to come.
Simple, fail-proof styling for the summer, A Day’s March shirts range from button-down Oxford shirts to spread collared linen pieces. The Sand Patch Pocket Linen Shirt ticks all of the off-duty boxes, the front hosts two large patch pockets while the cotton-linen blend is airy and cut to a boxy fit. Style this piece with lightweight chinos or a pair of shorts to showcase its versatility.
Summer should be used as an opportunity to experiment, especially with regards to colour schemes. The Limoncello Dyed Oxford shirt epitomises summer-ready shirting. A crisp button-down collar tops a semi-slim fit silhouette imagined in luxurious cotton that has been garment dyed to produce deep, faded colours for a laid-back, worn-in look.
While stocking up on shirts is a viable option for summer, it’s always a good idea to diversify. So – after much deliberation – we have decided on the two most essential summer items that aren’t shirts. Firstly, summer is not summer without the prospect of swimming so be sure to pick up the Bottle Green Swim Shorts, although they feature an elastic drawstring waist, the slim leg design means they will complement any of the shirts listed above.
Top off your seasonal wardrobe with a pair of luxury sneakers. Crafted of Spanish suede, this pair of Sand Marching Suede Sneakers boasts a vulcanised Italian Margom sole to complete the ultra-minimal silhouette. Complete with a travel bag and an extra pair of laces, it seems that the hard decisions of your summer wardrobe have been made for you by A Day’s March.
