What does the Mr Porter man wear in warm weather?

Just ask Mr P.

What does the Mr Porter man wear in warm weather?
Seersucker, terrycloth, and polo tees have his stamp of approval — and that of John F. Kennedy

In matters of the wardrobe, there is the adage that evaluates a man by his shoes. For instance: if they're worse for wear, chances are he's a slaphappy gent; a well cared for pair of brogues on the other hand might indicate a detail-oriented man. Instead of casting judgement solely on one's clothing, wouldn't it be more authentic to his character (and more honourable a duty) if we assessed a man by his heroes? After all, people tend to emulate the characters they place on a pedestal — just like Mr P. has done with John F. Kennedy as well as naval officer, conservationist and scientist, Jacques-Yves Cousteau. 

In the form of the April collection from Mr Porter's in-house label, rising temperatures — plus Kennedy and Cousteau's sensibilities — comes forth modest prints for cazh occasions, new summer-friendly fabrications to challenge style and mind, and texture as key to subtly elevate attire. The 34-piece range runs terrycloth T-shirts, knitted piqué polos, unlined blousons, striped and patterned camp-collar shirts, and seersucker jackets and shorts; multipurpose casualwear that gives its wearer the freedom of dressing them up or down.
