Football fans

Summer 2014 sees a large proportion of our nation go football-crazy as Brazil hosts one of the biggest international sporting events in the world.

With 32 countries taking part, this global tournament will have us glued to our tellies from the opening match on 12 June to the nail-biting final on 13 July.

During the Group Stage you’ll be able to fly the flag for England, but after that it’s anyone’s guess.

To play it safe and neutral, why not show your love of the beautiful game with Ben Sherman’s football
themed tees.

Striped tees have had the cool factor ever since Elvis appeared on the silver screen wearing one in the classic 1950’s movie Jailhouse Rock. Both Pablo Picasso and
Andy Warhol were huge fans, and who can challenge the style credibility of two of the greatest artists of the 20th century?

To be honest, summer wouldn’t be the same without a Breton stripe here and a bold or slim stripe there.

Escape artists

When the summer hits, there’s no better treat than taking a break and holidaying abroad, especially on the beach. Bring summer to your off-duty wardrobe with Scotch & Soda’s Beach Break teeor Maui tee. Tommy Hilfiger sets your sights on California with Palm Springs tee and Hilfiger Denim’s LA tee.

Celebrity attendance at summer festivals has made dressing for such an event as important as where you pitch up your tent. As it’s almost always a casual happening, you’ll most definitely be rocking a T-shirt of some sort with shorts, jeans or chinos.

No doubt you’ll be able to buy music T-shirts at the outdoor gigs, but you might still want to stick to the classics and not align yourself with any one band in particular. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Oasis’s debut album Definitely Maybe, and the likelihood of Britpop style reappearing. Build your 90s outfit with Liam Gallagher’s clothing label, Pretty Green, and its Liam Gallagher tee.

From the king of Britpop to the king of rock and roll, Pepe Jeans Elvis T-shirt shows the legend in full swing. Not a fan? Then keep it anonymous with a generic animal band tee.
