Menswear Must-Haves for Spring/Summer 2019

24 Apr 2019

Each season brings with it its own batch of new arrivals, and a new season means new must-have pieces to pick up.
Specially selected by Simons' team of buyers, here are the top 5 incoming styles to add to your spring/summer 2019 shopping list. They'll round out your daily rotation as well as add a little something extra. And they're all exclusively available at Simons!

The Knit Polo

Characteristically masculine, the polo has a very special place in our closet. Popular in summer and winter (as well as a must on the golf course), it's a piece that RSVPs for every occasion. This season, the polo gets reworked in a thin knit with short sleeves. It's lightweight, featuring openwork details and textured finishes. For more gutsy guys who have a soft spot for the past, the polo goes retro with wide vertical stripes and vintage shades.
For a relaxed and “smart casual” feel, wear the knit polo with a pair of chinos, jeans, or Bermudas. Layer it under your jacket for days at the office or for more formal occasions. In fact, why not swap out your shirt for this piece when you want to be the best dressed guest at the next wedding?

The Lyocell T-Shirt

This new item is joining your lineup of basic tees. If you need to buy a T-shirt this season, this is the one you want. Its looser, more modern fit featuring a slight drop-sleeve will definitely help you to stand out.
Made in Portugal, it comes in a fluid and light cotton-lyocell jersey. Since it’s naturally soft, the lyocell fibre is comfortable while also being very durable. It releases moisture from the body to save the day when the warm weather hits. And what else can we say about its luxurious-looking smooth finish besides that it’s exceptional? In short, this is your new go-to that you’ll wear again and again!

The Knit Dress Shirt 

Constantly looking for THE shirt? The one that’ll ensure you’re comfy and chic? Coming straight from Turkey, meet our fine-knit number made out of top-quality mercerized cotton. Known for its brighter and more durable threads, mercerized cotton will continue to look great, even over time. Providing deluxe comfort with its soft, silky feel and featuring a subtle satiny finish, it’s the new must-have in tailoring.


The knit shirt will simplify your life, whether you’re doing your daily routine or you’re on the go, thanks to its ability to stretch and how easy it is to maintain. It’s perfect for looking sharp at meetings, on dates, and even on special occasions. Wear it under a suit jacket or on its own with pants so that it can be the centre of attention. It’s an elegant shirt that will ensure you stand out!

The Athletic Jogger

For a few seasons now, sports style has influenced almost every item in our wardrobe. The jogger was the first to take the lead in this trend and once again this season, it’s ranking at the very top. Sporty, casual, dressy—joggers do it all. There’s no need to list off the different ways to style them since now, recognized as a versatile essential, they’re appropriate everywhere and at all times. Joggers can be defined by many different details, like if the have a drawstring elastic waistband or buttons, or whether or not they feature elastic cuffs. They can come in denim, lightweight cotton, or soft woven wool.

This season, the jogger’s getting a makeover! These pants are attracting extra attention for the sporty stripe that runs along the length of their leg. In solid colours, striped, or decorated with a brand’s logo, this new distinct and unique detail has joined the “jogging team” and is taking the athletic trend to the next level.

The Minimalist Shoe

Pastels are everywhere this summer and are stepping things up on sleek and versatile shoes. Soles that have come in black and white for the past few seasons are now testing out pale grey-blue tones. Midway between a sneaker and a dress shoe, this footwear features minimalist lines and projects an urban-athletic vibe. They’re made in Portugal out of genuine leather and will elevate your everyday wardrobe. With their clean, modern look, they’re perfect to pair with dressier or more casual duds.

We’re wearing them with our favourites this season, styling them in tone-on-tone ensembles or keeping them as a contrast piece. Give these kicks a prominent place in you wardrobe and we guarantee you won’t regret it!
