But, while a summer vacay — all that sun, sand and salty air — is the ultimate in relaxation (and an excuse to leave that restricting yet stylish business shirt and tie combo back in the office for a few days), the modern man should put in one last effort to be organised before retiring into holiday mode.  And that’s by packing correctly.

Holiday booked or not, a bit of casual planning (and shopping) is in order. Especially, if it’s been a while since you’ve stocked up on new gear (and you’re still wearing those knee-length, flame-print boardies from 1999. They, themselves need burning).

From linen shirts to tailored chino shorts, statement shades and solid shoes (yes, they are still required, even on vacation), here are ten of the most essential items for your next summer getaway. Bring on those rays.
