Whether itâ€™s on shirts or shorts, summer 2012 sees men reclaim prints and patterns for themselves. Take a quick look around the M&S menswear range and youâ€™ll spot all types of prints â€“ everything from florals and Hawaiian motifs, to watermelons and penguins.

Terry O’Connor, head of menswear design at M&S, tells us that “Hawaiian and vintage-looking shirt prints, even in the adverse weather, have gone off really well.Â Guys are buying into colour now, so print is the next logical step”.Â The addition of one or two bold prints can really freshen up a summer wardrobe, we’ve picked out our favourite printed items below, just click on an image to shop or find out more.
