Sam Fender’s Cuban Collar Shirt Is Perfect For The Summer Heat

Sam Fender’s rise to British indie success is nothing short of miraculous. Since the singer-songwriter was named one of the BBC’s Sounds of the Year in 2018, he’s gone from strength to strength, consistently delivering charts that have established him as the independent artist to watch right now (check out his recent gig at Glastonbury if you haven’t already). But it’s not just his sound that hits the right notes, his approach to style on stage smashes it too.

This weekend, the Tyneside-born entertainer wore a teal silk Cuban collar shirt to his historic gig at London’s Finsbury Park. Not only was it perfectly suited to the weather (if you’re reading this in the northern hemisphere you’ll know we’re currently experiencing an unprecedented heat wave), but it was a look that – while somewhat simple and direct – was as self-assured and cool as the music that Sam Fender has become synonymous with.

Now, Sam Fender once told us that it was “never really a stage outfit type,” but we still can’t help but think this rockabilly set was thought of. What we really liked was the way it was worn: rolled up sleeves, worn over black jeans and accessories with a simple silver chain. A master class in effortless, nonchalant summer dressing.

But that’s the power of a good camp collar shirt: as simple as they are, there’s hardly any summer look that isn’t greatly improved by the addition of a, which explains their unwavering popularity in recent years – and the huge selection available there right now. Plus, it’s a garment for warm weather and good times, and we’re all ready for that this summer, aren’t we?
