Love The Sales has compiled a list of their favourite menswear pieces

Countryside weddings are growing in popularity, whether it's set in an open field, a converted barn, or even family gardens, it's easy to see why so many couples are now choosing outdoor venues.

For men and others who decide against the traditional wedding guest dress, keeping cool in a suit at an outdoor country wedding is slightly more difficult. However, there are great alternatives to your regular wool-blend suit that are ideal for a country wedding in the sun. Linen suits have seen an increase in search demand on Google by 30 per cent over the last 30 days compared to last year, bringing the smart-casual style back to the forefront of summer fashion.
