The music festivals have been usurped by the Olympics this year. With Glastonbury having a year off and the Olympics on every commercial and product in the supermarket, the only thing we can do is get involved. The pink Olympic stickers have gone up all over town and many people are camping out or staying out late as part of their pilgrimage to Stratford. So we thought we’d look at a few stylish things to make the Olympics the enjoyable experience it should be.

The school of thought on this one is all the attention should be focussed on the happy couple. Think sober, traditional menswear where the devil is in the detail. It’s a long day, so you want something that is comfortable and also continues to look good well into the evening. This won't be breaking any fashionable moulds, but use it as an opportunity to invest in quality classics and timeless accessories.
