SHOP: The best Love Island Season 11 men's shirts

Sean's Aztec Shirt
Price: £23.50 (Was £26)

While this isn't the exact shirt that we spotted Sean in, it certainly looks similar. Shop on ASOS now.

Bombshell Trey looked trendy in a palm leaf shirt during a game of 'Never Have I Ever' around the fire pit.

Joey's exact shirt is from Acne, and is now unfortunately sold out. We found a similar one from Wax London, ideal for summer made from a cotton blend.

A classic jean vest can be worn on its own or over a jumper or t-shirt. We spotted Ayo wearing one on the show, and although we couldn't find the original, we spotted a similar one on Levi's.

Haven't you heard? Tie dye is back. We love this shirt spotted on Omar, and found a similar one from Pull and Bear to shop.

While this Zara shirt doesn't have strawberry motifs, it looks similar to Ayo's and is ideal for the summer.

Ciaran's stripe shirt is a number from Matalan, but is almost sold out with only XXL and XXXL in stock. Here's a similar shirt from ASOS.

We couldn't find the exact jumper Ronnie wore, so we found a suspiciously similar alternative from ASOS, minus the white collar.

We spotted Ayo in a burgundy shirt. We found a similar shirt from Mango which we think is a great alternative.

New boy Will looked ready for a summer of love in a blue shirt, complete with palm tree detailing. We couldn't find the original shirt, so here's an ASOS one instead.

Joey's White Long Sleeve Top
Price: £34 (was £45)

Shop a similarly inspired long sleeve top from ASOS that resembles Joey's.

Keep it classic like Ciaran with a navy tee. Don't fancy spending £95 on the original? No worries, we found a plain t-shirt from River Island.

Joey Essex' Paisley Shirt
Price: £59 (was £119)

Joey wore a paisley patterned shirt from All Saints, and it's luckily still in stock at a discounted price.

Ayo's Yellow Bomber Jacket
Price: £18 (was £30)

Ayo wore a now sold out Ralph Lauren bomber jacket during an intense villa dumping. Shop an alternative from Boohoo instead.

Ayo's orange shirt is a lovely number from Zara, still available to shop in every available size.

We couldn't find the exact shirt we spotted Omar wearing, so here's a similar number from Reclaimed Vintage that you can shop on ASOS.

Omar's Palm Tree Shirt
Price: £19.49 (was £25.99)

Omar looked ready for the beach with a palm tree themed shirt. We found a similar one on New Look.

We couldn't find Ciaran's exact shirt, so we found a pretty good dupe from M&S.

Joey's Red Bomber Jacket
Price: £38 (was £75)

Joey's original bomber is a vintage Ralph Lauren jacket that you can no longer buy. Grab this Calvin Klein golf jacket if you're after a similar vibe.

Ronnie looked cool in this Represent Varity Jacket, available to buy from FarFetch. We found a similar jacket from Superdry, that is significantly cheaper than the OG.

Ronnie wore a now unavailable T-shirt from the brand Grailed- check out the dupe we spotted on, you guessed it, ASOS.

Ciaran's Beige Shirt
Price: £18.50 (was £28)

Ciaran's beige shirt made him look cool and stylish while he sat with Nicole. Shop a similar dupe from ASOS that will suit anyone. The shirt even has extended sizing.

Munveer's Crochet Shirt
Price: £17.50 (was £25)

Munveer's lace shirt is a perfect wardrobe staple for summer. Although we couldn't find the original, we found a similar shirt from Boohoo.

Joey Essex wore a linen shirt on his first appearance in the Love Island villa. We found a similar piece from Pull & Bear.

Munveer's embroidered jacket is from high street hero Zara, but is now unfortunately out of stock. Luckily, we found a subtly similar jacket from fellow high street brand ASOS.

Ayo's Brown Fine Knit Jumper
Price: £12.50 (was £25)

We couldn't find the exact jumper that Ayo was spotted in, however we found this jumper from ASOS which resembles the original he wore.

Indeed, alongside the gorgeous Love Island bikinis, we were often blown away by the copious amount of sexy men's shirts worn on the show.

As you would've noticed, we've also included some pre-loved options above - in celebration of Love Island's official fashion partner, eBay. You'll be pleased to know that there's even a Love Island hub on eBay, so you can shop looks inspired by your fave Islanders. Doing your bit for the planet couldn't be easier.

Where do Love Island boys get their clothes from?

Whereas in previous years, the clothes provided to the boys and girls were from particular brands sponsoring the villa, such as I Saw It First - now Love Island is sponsored by secondhand powerhouse eBay. A much more ethical decision made by ITV means not only are the Islanders wearing secondhand vintage items, but encouraging the viewers at home to go preloved too. eBay has a stylist team that sources exciting vintage pieces, for both sexes and places them in the villa wardrobes ready to wear.

Do they supply the clothes on Love Island?

The Love Island team, in collaboration with eBay, do provide the clothes worn on the show, but only 50% of the outfits you see worn are actually eBay-supplied. The other 50% is clothing that the Islanders have bought in themselves with their suitcase. Furthermore, if an Islander is a clothing ambassador for a brand, such as Toby Aromolaran for boohooMAN, then they'll be rocking a lot of that brand as part of their contract.

Are Love Islanders wearing eBay clothes?

They indeed are wearing eBay clothes, as part of ITV's mission to promote more sustainable shopping, in contrast to previous collaborations with fast fashion brands. The boys in particular pass these eBay items around frequently, so you'll see multiple men wearing the same shirt or jacket on different nights. For example, the infamous customised Stussy Jacket thrown off by Tom Clare during season nine (a move compared to the likes of Tory Bolton in High School Musical) was worn subsequently by Medhi in season ten. We love seeing how each Islander wears these one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.

What happens to the clothes on Love Island?

Unfortunately, unless an Islander manages to steal a piece in their suitcase before heading home, all the eBay clothing is kept in-house and not owned by the individuals in the villa. Near the end of every series, since the eBay sponsorship began (starting season eight), eBay and pre-loved seller Reskinned run a charity auction for the best vintage pieces worn by the Islanders on that particular series. Viewers bid on the site and the highest bidder gets to take home the actual item worn on the show. All proceeds go towards the charity Oxfam.

Do Love Islanders only get one suitcase?

The rumours are true - Islanders are only allowed to bring in one suitcase during their stay. Interestingly though, as revealed by Shaughna Phillips (season seven royalty) to OK! Magazine, when a contestant leaves the villa they don't pack all of their items, as they only have 15 to 20 minutes to exit. "You basically just pack things you definitely don’t want to lose and then overnight stuff, pyjamas, makeup, things like that...Your other stuff comes out a few days later and the people in the villa actually pack it for you - so hope that you’ve made good friends!”

Do they do washing in Love Island?

Lucky for the Islanders, they don't have to do any house chores and are relegated to lounging by the pool and causing drama only. The villa has a cleaner who turns up once a week and does laundry for the clothes and the bedding. Revealing the gossip to her TikTok audience, series five alum Amy Hart stated "You put your washing in a washing bag and it goes once a week, but we wouldn’t often give our clothes to the washing...Amber's bikini (that being season five winner Amber Gill), had a beautiful embellished bikini that was all broken. Everything was the wrong colour. Anna (as in legend Anna Vakili - "Two days?!" Anna) sent off a really nice dress and it came back three sizes smaller, so we didn't tend to put things in the wash if we could get away with it." Oh dear. Let's hope the All Stars keep an eye that their boxer briefs aren't shrinking.
