It may not be sunny in Manchester, but it’s always sunny somewhere. So for those who are jetting off in search of sun-soaked shores (or those who already live on sun-soaked shores), we’ve put together a few choice items to see your right.

Come to think of it, even Mr Olympia should wear a t-shirt on the beach — shuffling around like a bronzed lamb shank is enough to put anyone off their badly cooked barbeque goods. Anyway, the ethically minded free-thinkers at Jungmaven do a good line of t-shirts, and thanks to the dash of hemp that circle of earth-children by the campfire on the other side of the beach shouldn’t mind lending you their bottle opener/fire poi.
Not only are these cord shorts from Battenwear bob-on for a laid back beach sit-off, they also warrant the wearer the use of the hilarious pun, ‘beached wale’. Extra points when worn on a beach in Wales.
