Men’s summer staple T-shirts in hot-to-have styles will sizzle in town, country or at the beach and there are many trends to choose from. From standard issue camo prints and tie-dye, to hot tropical palm and floral prints, tattered and torn tees and rock & roll band tees, the high street is flooded with some serious styles you can slide into your wardrobe with ease, and at purse friendly prices.
The rock & roll band tee is a major player for the summer. Whether you’re chilling out with headphones on, or partying to the coolest tunes at a festival, parading your favourite band or musician across your chest is the style du jour.

The rock & roll style shows no sign of slowing down so get involved with the classics or keep it retro with rock inspired tees in graphic prints. You’ll find plenty of classic styles inspired by old-school gig-wear in the shops, and non-band specific so you can look super cool without pledging allegiance to any one band.

If tropical prints aren’t your vibe, then consider a camo print tee as a pleasingly masculine alternative. Integrating some military machismo into your wardrobe and going all-out squaddie in an all-over camo print might seem like overkill, but plenty of brands are now producing contemporary digital camo designs that will work well with denim and neutral toned shorts.
