It's time to start buying smart new shirts in preparation for a summer that looks set to be packed with great events.

Summer is coming and with it a host of dates for the diary for these wishing to make the most of the sunny forecast.

But, while you might go to Glastonbury in a grubby Smiths t-shirt that's older than the majority of the bands performing, some events require a smarter look.

With that in mind, London shirtmaker Hawes and Curtis have recently launched their formal and casual summer shirt collections.

The company's casual range would be perfect for a trip to June's Latitude Festival which the organisers describe as being "More Than A Music Festival".

The eclectic line-up includes music acts such as Grace Jones, the Pet Shop Boys and Editors as well as a comedy tent with some of the world's best stand-up acts.

And comedy fans will of course have the Edinburgh Festival to look forward to throughout most of August. Expect performances from a varied selection of entertainers during what is the world’s biggest arts festival.

Sports wise, Hawes and Curtis ladieswear range will be ideal for horse racing's Gold Cup, or Ladies Day as it is famously known, at Royal Ascot on June 18.

Wimbledon serves up its usual mix of world-class tennis, strawberries and hopefully no Cliff Richard when the tournament starts on June 22.

And for those who prefer motor racing at speeds faster than Andy Murray's serve, then the British Santander Grand Prix weekend takes place at the end of June. Race fans will be hoping that Jenson Button or Lewis Hamilton can secure a home victory.

Away from the organised events, summer always brings its fair share of weddings, birthdays, graduations and christenings, where a formal shirt will be the natural, and expected, attire.

A premier shirtmaker, Hawes and Curtis was established by Ralph Hawes and Freddie Curtis in 1913.
From its leading online store and outlets across Britain, the company sells a wide range of shirt styles for men and women plus a selection of ties and cufflinks.
