Fashion: Got Style menswear loving our shorts and tees

The lovely people over at Got Style Menswear chose our tees and shorts recently in their weekly 'staff picks'. 

Charlotte loved our State v-tee because "It’s a fashionable tee, it has spring colours, and it’s the optimal layering piece. Why wouldn’t you want this Zanerobe tee in your closet? "

You can shop ZR v-tees here

Vylan loved our Stormer street short and Kings Court denim short because "They’re trim, they’re a couple inches above the knee, and they make you look more athletic and slimmer. Skip the baggy shorts – baggy is out!" (we couldn't agree more!)

You can shop ZR denim here
