So many men simply don’t understand linen, and it’s often those who have had the luck of a childhood in Europe that may ever truly appreciate it. But a linen suit can be perfect for those hot, humid summer days. Try wearing a cotton or wool suit once the mercury pushes past 30 Celsius / 85 Fahrenheit and you’ll see what I mean. Because of its nature, line makes a great summer suit and colours such as whites and creams and particularly suited.
One final note on linen: don’t be scared of linen’s penchant for creasing, it’s all a part of the fabric’s charm.
