Workday kit to keep you cool when temperatures rise.


Words: C. Saramowicz


Summer is great, but workwear can be tricky during the warmer months. With crisp mornings, sweaty commutes and dodgy aircon, how do you ensure you’re well prepared for the working week? Enter our fundamentals for the workplace, pieces that will get you through the summer and beyond. It’s all about looking put together, keeping cool and combatting the heat wave without feeling flustered.


Moss - short sleeve shirts

Short sleeve shirts

Short sleeve shirts are a summer staple. Light and versatile, they can easily be styled down or up depending on the formality of your work place. Worn buttoned up to the top under a linen suit and you’ve got a corporate look worthy of any board room (tie optional). As for more relaxed settings, add chinos and a white pair of trainers and you’re ready for a smart-casual office environment. Our takes are crafted from cotton, linen, or a combination of the two.

The great thing about these is they can be worn outside of the workplace, too. Combine with pleated shorts and loafers for weekend plans in the sun.


Comfortable trousers

When it comes to warmer weather, especially in the workplace, breathability is key. You don’t want to feel stuffy or uncomfortable during a heatwave. Wherever you work, a good pair of trousers will help you feel put together even if you’re feeling hot.

Our pleated take is crafted from summer’s favourite fabric, linen, with a mitred extended waistband and side adjusters for that extra sartorial touch. If you want something a bit more casual, chinos with a elasticated waistband are a bit more fitted but still give enough room for movement.


Unlined jackets

If you need an extra layer of formality but don’t want to wear a suit, an unlined jacket will be your go-to. Much lighter than a half or full canvas blazer, these will level up your outfits all while keeping you cool. Our Hoxton jackets are crafted from organic cotton with a hint of stretch that offer breathability and comfort, essentials in the heat. Throw them over a short sleeve shirt and add a pair of cotton chinos for a smart casual look ideal for big meetings and slow-paced office days alike.
