M&S 'old Hollywood' style shirt and trousers hailed go-to summer outfit for men

Fashion lovers have found a perfect summer outfit from Marks and Spencer that gives them an “old Hollywood” look.

The T-shirt and jeans combination is a staple, no-fault outfit for any man’s wardrobe. To refresh the timeless look, you don’t have to go for bold colours and patterns as a play on fabric textures can deliver the same effect.

The M&S Cotton Rich Textured Shirt and matching Single Pleat Super Lightweight Chinos are here to bring a fresh feel to a classic outfit choice.

The high-street retailer shared an Instagram post that shows lifestyle influencer Thomas Lloyd in the outfit, and said: “Keeping things causal.” It combines classic and contemporary styles in one and shoppers are loving it.


M&S’ £35 top has a light pointelle texture that appears like subtle stripes, and it’s made with breathable cotton-rich fabric in a regular fit. The warm, cream ivory colour and relaxed Cuban collar are what make this shirt so stylish and smart.

One fan shared his thoughts on Thomas’ outfit and said: “Wow love this look. This is so ‘old Hollywood’.”

“Oh looking good,” another added and a third commented: “This reminds me of La La Land. Great looks!”

Don’t worry if the light hue isn’t for you, as the brand also has it in navy and sizes are available from a small to 3XL. In the bottoms, Thomas opted for the regular fit of the M&S Single Pleat Super Lightweight Chinos, £45, in navy.

Made for warmer weather, these are made from stretchy Lycra fabric with a moisture-wicking finish that will keep you feeling fresh all day. The crisp single pleat at the front makes the chinos even more stylish – perfect for your Friday office look. Shoppers can choose from three different lengths – 29in, 31in, and 33in – and waist sizes between 32in to 44in.

For a weekend ensemble, M&S has the chinos without any pleats and this version is currently the retailer’s second best-selling item across men’s fashion. Available in 10 colours for everyday wear, the Super Lightweight Chinos are £45 and can be purchased in either a regular or slim fit.

Urban Outfitter’s BFD Ecru Knit Polo Shirt is similar but offers a standout knit pattern that can be great over a vest or T-shirt. And Uniqlo’s Slim Fit Chinos are cut with a relaxed fit below the knee for a sleek, straight silhouette and are ideal for off-duty days. Shoppers said the £34.90 pair “washed well” after use.
