We’re are well aware that, at this time of year, inboxes are filling up with all sorts of offers yet you’re probably still more concerned about where you’re going to watch the World Cup games later on tonight or where you’re booking your last minute summer holiday to. However, once those issues subside a little, you’ll want to know all about this. As of today, the OPUMO Summer Sale has launched online and it comes as the perfect time for you to fill in the gaps of your summer wardrobe. With up to 60% off seasonal favourties from YMC and Garrett Leight to name a few, you’d be well advised to check it out now.
To help you out, we’ve compiled a few of our favourite – and pretty well reduced – pieces from the current sale selection, focussing on items that will see you through summer and well into the rest of the year, too. Scroll down – these top picks aren’t likely to be around for long.
If you ask anyone why they like A.P.C so much, they are likely to describe a piece of clothing that looks an awful lot like this, the Kerlouan Jacket. Cut in a classic straight-bodied-slim-fit, the jacket takes all the best qualities of traditional workwear silhouettes and gives it a full-bodied French update courtesy of its simple fold down collar and beautifully worn khaki green colour hue.
Han Kjobenhavn operates in its own special lane where innovative fabric choices, classic Scandinavian shapes and a sporting edge come together in one fully functional aesthetic. It’s an amalgamation of ideas that has inspired this Shell Track Top. Which, in essence, is a contemporary rendition of a classic sports track top that is so clean cut, comfortable and understated that you can switch it up with a tailored trouser and it will look better, and more contemporary, than any shirt would, for example.

It pays to consider comfort and resilience when it comes to your choice of shirt as it’s likely that in the next few months you’re never going to be out of it. This Fireman Pullover from Garbstore is based on the lining of a vintage fireman’s coat and it expertly shows the British brand’s know-how for mixing the old with the new to create contemporary clothing with a distinctive, modern edge. The black-and-yellow colourway certainly helps to edge it into the hybrid old-meets-new territory, and so does its heavy Japanese cotton flannel construction, press stud closure and relaxed open neckline.
You can think of Garbstore’s menswear collection as a sort of greatest hits of the modern man’s wardrobe. In each piece, the famed British outfitters does its utmost to create the ultimate incarnation of a classic, a fact that is displayed in these Recliner Shorts, expertly cut in high-density, lightweight cotton poplin. The best thing, though, beyond the light tan colour hue, is the fact that the shorts come with an elasticated waistband which means they are just as comfortable as any other pair of shorts out there. They just look a lot more refined and, therefore, wearable through the working week as well as the weekend.
The Vortex was introduced into ETQ’s sneaker rotation a few seasons back, and it marked a slight change in direction from the brand’s signature minimal sneakers towards the sports spectrum of premium sneakers. The Vortex is essentially a tech-infused runner silhouette that incorporates mesh uppers with a simple leather overlay, melt-taped seams, tubular knit laces and an ultra-fast Vibram outsole. They’re some of the most comfortable men’s sneakers on the market too, which always helps.
The simple white sneaker, made ever-popular by adidas’ Stan Smith and the Common Projects Original Achilles Low, has become such an imperative part of all of our wardrobes that it seems rather unnecessary to recommend that you pick up another pair for summer. But the truth is, if you’re considering a fresh pair to help you guide through the copious amounts of beer gardens you’re likely to tread, you should – and a minimal design like the North 89 No-2 is the perfect choice. Made from ultra-breathable mesh uppers with a lightweight lining to allow air to travel through the shoe, it’s fair to say that the sneakers are designed for ultimate comfort. Which is helped by the white margom cupsole, calfskin lining and Nappa leather accents.
Perhaps you’re planning to spend the summer exploring a few new cities across the continent. Then again, perhaps you’re going to head outdoors a bit more and do some walking, or something a bit more adventurous. If you find yourself in either scenario, and are seeking a slightly more rugged, albeit comfortable, look for your summer wardrobe, these YMC Nam Trousers are exactly what you need. The slouch fit of these cargo-inspired trousers nudge them above heavy cottons and denim jeans you’ve been wearing for a while, not to mention the added comfort provided by the hidden drawstring waist.
It goes without saying – even though we have said it many times before – that a classic Breton stripe, particularly in white and navy, is an essential in every summer wardrobe. Especially when they look as good, carefree and easy as this Ecru X Jumper from YMC. Now with even further reductions, the Ecru X is rendered in a tactile cotton terry fabric, ensuring it’s a cut above your common stripe tee.
Crafted from a soft and lightweight premium cotton, we’re pretty confident that this short sleeve Green Baja tee is one of the most comfortable t-shirts that you’ll wear this summer. That’s because it not only looks good in the way that all thick stripe tees do, but courtesy of its clean aesthetic and classic fit, it will anchor a lot of holiday looks. Particularly when paired to khaki, navy and stone colour hues.
