Mark Stephen Summer 2012 has now been launched with very good saving across the collections to be found , and among them a good selection of key pieces that would be ideally suited to summer travelling or touring .

Top of the billing Mark Stephen Purple Label suits are offered at £295 instead of the regular £350 . A new delivery of our sharp fitting wool suits has just arrived this week from our suitmaker in Italy , so currently there is a good range of sizes, single button and two button styles, and a diversity of fine cloths in super 100's & super 110's lightweight wools and even the wool/mohair blend which is the ideal choice if you are travelling over the summer months as it is always looks sharp , even from the suitcase, provided it has been well packed and not indiscriminately jammed in to comply with the  strict luggage allowances of increasingly more airlines .

Shirts are also on sale with Purple Label shirts usually £ 59 now on SALE at £45 . Mark Stephen shirts feature a sharp tailored cut designed to fit perfectly without bagginess . A smart 100% cotton shirt is the coolest thing to wear for travel and a good fitted shirt will take you anywhere without embarassment or wondering if you are underdressed . Even worn with jeans or shorts, open-necked , sleeves rolled up is that is your style, a smart tailored shirt cuts a dash at any resort, and once the evening chill sets in why not throw over a smart Mark Stephen lightweight wool or linen blazer , with real mother of pearl buttons, rather than the more traditional brass favoured by military types, and you will be perfectly set for "happy hour" or stroll along the sea front whilst deciding which restaurant takes your fancy for a relaxed dinner .

Moreover, if you decide that a more dressed-up establishment fits the bill then why not produce out of your pocket ( ideally rolled  not screwed up ) a Mark Stephen Silk jacquard tie ,  on SALE at £29 instead of the usual £35 and transform your easy relaxed look to immediate sophistication .

Tales of poorly dressed Englishmen on holiday are legendary, but it doesn't need to be the case. There is nothing more elegant than a crisp white 100% cotton shirt, nor so versatile than a sharp cut navy blue blazer or charcoal suit for evening. Mark Stephen also offers a selection of 100% cotton tailored chinos which are made  in Italy, from soft washed cotton drills that are incredibly versatile , with good deep pockets which is a always a useful consideration when travelling. There are even some Continental looking hues creams soft blues and terracotta ,along with the usual classics , navy & beige all of which would be perfect for travelling . And if you want to enter into the spirit of your resort then rather than choose something garish thats been hanging for weeks along the promenade, why not look out for a colourful pocket square, or something that will show you have embraced the culture of your resort, but that will not subsequently embarass you on your holiday photos once you are back in Blighty ?
