Summer's Staple Fabric: Linen
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT IT?
The appeal of linen textiles is nothing new. Dating back thousands of years, this material has stood the test of time. Composed of the fibers of the flax plant, it’s one of the earliest known manmade fabrics. In ancient Mesopotamia, it was worn by the wealthy and priests; in ancient Egypt, it was used for mummification and burials.
Linen is not only breathable, but also sweat absorbent and hypo-allergenic. Because it's made of flax, which requires less chemicals and water needed for cultivation, it's eco-friendly, too.
Today, it’s a go-to summer staple for men who want a warm-weather look that’s as sophisticated as it is nonchalant, as office-appropriate as it is resort-ready.
