Centring on timeless menswear staples, the Trunk collection for Spring/Summer 2022 has been created with a focus on the summer city. Made from specially selected fabrics that are seasonally appropriate in weight and texture, each piece has been designed to take you through the season with style and ease. The arrival of this latest collection brings with it an array of new additions to the Trunk offering, combined with tried and tested classics in new fabrics and colours. From unstructured tailoring to summer knitwear, below is a small preview of what to expect in the coming weeks.
The Fresco Suit
A seasonal iteration of the Trunk Wigmore suit returns for spring and summer in a crisp wool fresco from the Yorkshire-based mill, Hardy Minnis. Tailored in Italy, the Wigmore epitomises from the laidback and unstructured qualities of Italian tailoring, while the breezy open-weave fabric makes it an ideal choice for the warmer months ahead. Available as separates, the Trunk Wigmore fresco suit arrives in a classic navy or charcoal grey for maximum versatility.

The Knitted Polo
New for SS22, the Trunk Farren knitted polo shirt steers clear of the old-school glamour of the French Riviera, instead opting for a simple and refined take with a firm focus on fabric. Knitted in an ultra-fine gauge organic cotton with a crisp and dry handle, it's the perfect partner to smart trousers and suede penny loafers. Available in blue, ecru and olive.
The Trunk Farren Knitted Polo Shirt will be available from early April
The Irish Linen Shirt
The Trunk George linen shirt returns, this time in an organic Irish linen from the family-run mill, Baird Mcnutt. Aside from a long history of making quality fabrics, the mill is also committed to using sustainable production methods. Tactile and durable, we chose Irish linen for its dense and weighty handle that wears better over time and provides incredible drape. Available in white, pink and navy and blue stripe.

The Summer Knit
A good summer knit is hard to come by, and when it comes to the right sweater it has to be the perfect balance of style and comfort. Enter the Trunk Hanway stripe cotton crew neck sweater, knitted in Italy from a heavy gauge organic cotton rib, the Hanway boasts a substantial handle and yet remains comfortable and breathable thanks to the stretchy and relatively open weave. Modelled on classic Breton styles, the beige stripe offers a softened contrast compared to an expected white stripe, while the navy body keeps things classic.
The Seersucker Separates
Again new for SS22 is the Trunk Aldford jacket, and with it the Hollen trousers and Pont shorts. This functional trio are all crafted from the same garment-dyed seersucker cloth in a breezy cotton linen blend, perfect for keeping you cool on those balmy summer days. The Aldford is a versatile chore jacket style, with four functional front patch pockets, while the trousers and shorts both feature single pleats for even more comfort. Wear the trousers and jacket in early spring, and introduce the shorts when the weather calls for it.
