All About Linen

Linen blog

Linen is a textile best known as the quintessential warm-weather fabric. It has been produced for thousands of years by numerous civilizations, and surviving artifacts like the hieroglyphics below give a glimpse into just how important of a role it played. A clothing staple even after millennia, linen’s continued popularity demonstrates its truly impressive staying power.

But how exactly has it remained the top choice for warm-weather wear, even with the recent influx of technologically-enhanced apparel? Well, linen is better at cooling than any other fabric because its super absorbent fibers wick perspiration away from the skin and swiftly evaporate it, so that you’ll never feel clammy no matter how much you sweat. The nature of its construction allows for extra airflow so you keep cool and stay cool.

We offer pure linen and linen blends in many categories including suits, sport coats, vests, shorts, and pants, but the essential linen sport shirt is an excellent way to start your own linen collection. When it comes down to it, if you reside in a warm climate or are planning on visiting one, linen garments are an absolute must. As a bonus, linen is a smart addition to any casual look. You can be sure that when you’re wearing it, you’ll look – and feel – pretty darn cool.

    What I do not like about Linen suits or slacks: It wrinkles very easily , especially if you sit down for dinner or a show, the back of the suit coat becomes wrinkled and looks like a cheap piece of material! Also slacks wrinkle at the knee level.

    Samuel, it is true than Linen does wrinkle. Still, we think its astonishing cooling qualities and sheer durability more than make up for its propensity toward wrinkling and also lend it a casual, not-too-fussy vibe. And for many people, that’s part of Linen’s charm!
