With Summer quickly creeping upon us (over the other side of the world to us that is), summer wear is now a must for June so make sure that your wardrobe is fill to the brim with t-shirts and shorts that truly reflect the great outdoors.
For Summer 2011, Penfield have taken to eye catching prints and fabrics with tie-dye and patchwork being the main focal points, taking direct inspiration from Cape Cod casualwear from the 50′s and 70′s. Think East coast prep, New England beach boys hitting the sands on summer break from Harvard. City strolls with nothing but your tee, shorts and penny loafers and your wallet in hand.
This season, their collection takes hold of light, airy and soft colors to create a summer pallet that gently compliments lazy relaxing summer days. All their t-shirts are made of 100% cotton jersey including details such as side seem tabs, woven Penfield labels and a vintage garment wash for a more classic finish. Shorts pick up on many of the same cues as their shirting, with the Grafton style alone available in twill, patchwork, tie-dye and oxford. The practical, stylish Selford 6-pocket cargo short with contrast lining is meant to be worn with any number of shirts from the Spring /Summer 2011 collection.
