5 Tips for Wearing a Linen Suit

5 Tips for Wearing a Linen Suit

.Linen is one of the best fabrics to wear in the warmer months. It is incredibly breathable due to its lower thread count, and is extremely absorbent (30% more than cotton). It also had a very long shelf life, and gets softer and silkier with wear. Here's how you should wear it

 Choose a colored linen suit, light blue or even a darker navy for a more professional look.

  Be sure to have it dry cleaned and pressed before wearing it. The suit will wrinkle but a good dry cleaning will help keep it looking fresh longer. Be sure when you’re sitting down at your desk to hang your jacket on a hanger (never on the back of your chair).

Pair with a cotton men’s dress shirt. The mixture of fabrics will add depth and texture to your outfit.

We also recommend ditching the tie unless you work in a very traditionally conservative office. Instead add a touch of sprezzatura with a polka dot pocket square and spectators.

Remember that you are going for a light, casual summer look. If you have to wear an overcoat to stay warm, it’s too early in the season for linen. Also, a panama or boater hat can add a bit of flair but are more appropriate for late afternoon garden parties or evening bbq's.
