It's a Guy Thing

Spring/Summer 2016 Essentials

by Boys'Co Online

May 12, 2016


There is no doubt that the weather here in Vancouver can be unpredictable, but so far this spring time has been scorching hot. Even though we are in spring, it seems more appropriate then ever to bring out our summertime clothes a little earlier this year. If you're in need of some spring/summer approved threads, scroll down below to get inspired! 

We've picked out some of our favourite seasonal pieces and sorted them by category. If you'd like to see our full range of spring/summer arrivals, click here






The Workshop Rayon Short Sleeve Shirt is the perfect button up to keep you comfortable all summer long. Thanks to its rayon composition, this shirt is incredibly soft and easy to wear. We pair this button up with the Workshop Work Jacket and a pair of the J Lindeberg Nate Season Shorts for the ultimate summertime look. Best accompanied with a beer and some friends at the beach. 






If you want to go with something a bit more toned down and professional, definitely check out the J Lindeberg Ward Button Down Linen Shirt. This short sleeve shirt skips on the prints and comes in an all white and all blue colour way. Thanks to its breathable cotton and linen construction, you wont be heating up too quick in this essential button up. Additional details such as a front placket, back pleat and off-white buttons make this a beautiful summertime piece. 




For something a lot more relaxed, take a look at the newest t-shirts from J Lindeberg. Three new eye-catching and summer ready t-shirts are now available at our retail locations and online. The Ben Fine Slub T-Shirt in Off-White features a thin vertically striped design and is crafted from a soft cotton fabric. The Graphic Snug Jersey T-Shirt's come in a black print and a paisley print. These shirts feature a cotton/modal blend, making them soft to the touch and incredibly light which is ideal for the warmer months. 









If you're a big fan of the ZANEROBE Sureshot Joggers, you'll want to check out their summer friendly option. The Sureshot Short is a relaxed cut chino which features all the details you know and love from the original pant. Thanks to it's elastic waistband and stretch cotton twill construction, these shorts will keep you stylish and comfortable all summer long. We carry the Sureshot Shorts in dark camo and all black.




We also carry the ZANEROBE Solar Scout Shorts in their new solar print. This pair fits slightly differently from the Sureshot Shorts. It features a boxy chino fit with cuffed hems and a zip fly instead of the raw edge cut and elastic waist on the Sureshot Shorts. 


If you're looking for something more traditional to wear for the bottom half of your summer outfits, we recommend looking into spring/summer '16 arrivals from G-Star, Scotch & Soda and J Lindeberg



The Nate Season Stretch Chinos feature a classic and versatile silhouette. The quality on these shorts is exactly what we've come to expect from J Lindeberg. High quality cotton fused with a tiny bit elastane make these shorts nice and comfortable for those long summer patio sessions. These shorts are i credibly versatile and can be dressed either casually with a t-shirt and sneakers, but they look just as well if worn with a button up and a pair of oxfords. 





These Scotch & Soda Garment Dyed Chinos are perfect if you want to add a subtle touch of elegance to your outfit. At first sight they may just seem like a regular pair of chino shorts, but upon closer inspection you will notice an intricate pattern which has been dyed onto the fabric. It features a crisp and classic styling, finished off with a zip fly, two side pockets and two back pockets. 





If you're looking to step up your shoe game this season you should definitely look into some of these low-top silhouettes. The Sully Wong SW Micro Low is an instant classic, combining a sleek low-top body with an all white colour way. These clean sneakers will add a touch of laid-back sophistication to your summer wardrobe. 


Another great pair of low top sneakers for this season are the Converse Jack Purcell Signature Ox Low Top Sneakers in Inked Blue. This updated silhouette features 18 new features and benefits, including an Ortholite footbed with an embedded Nike Zoom Air Technology. The footbed delivers ultra-responsive cushioning and exceptional comfort to keep you going during your summertime adventures. The leather is soft and breathable which will make these sneakers a breeze to wear all season long. 




The Naked and Famous Denim Japan Sneakers are also a viable option this summer. They come in several different textures and colour-ways but our favourite pair is the Kimono Waves Print. The craftsmanship and quality on these sneakers are like none other. Every pair of Naked and Famous sneakers feature handmade uppers, incorporating unique Japanese fabrics and a vulcanized rubber sole. 


We hope that this list will help you fill some gaps in your summer wardrobe. To take a look at our full range of spring/summer line-ups click here.
