Linen is, of course, the ideal companion for the summer: a beautiful men's linen shirt is always pleasant to wear when the temperature is hot. Purists will also appreciate it, knowing that linen was one of the first cultivated fabrics, used in Ancient Egypt to create clothing. Linen is synonymous with zen. It is often worn with a mandarin or Indian collar. A bespoke linen shirt has pride of place in your wardrobe, including if you usually go for a more traditional style.
