Known for fun printed swimwear and use of bold colors, Mr Turk’s fall/winter 2014 collection has given a fresh Californian take on traditional preppy menswear. “Our inspiration for Mr Turk is always this sociable guy, someone who wants to go out.

Here on a bright, breezy day, Tom models one of Mr Turk’s latest swimwear designs, the safari board shorts, paired with a mini houndstooth patterned short sleeve button down. The shirt is very versatile and we did two looks with it, showing how to transition from casual summer work into a festive, holiday-ready outfit.
