Topman claim the trend is already gathering pace, with their checked blazer/short combo flying off the shelves (although how likely is it they’re being bought as a set rather than individual pieces?)

Both the Telegraph and the BBC sent reporters out yesterday to test the waters. Although not exactly ideal models to judge the look on, the response wasn’t unanimously negative…

If you’re feeling brave, going sockless with the right pair of boat shoes or slip-ons and a ridiculous amount of self-confident swagger might help the cause.
