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.
The Art of Wearing Linen WellAlthough linen is our fabric of choice for summer, you’d be wise to proceed with caution. With a tendency to wrinkle, the reality is that it’s very easy to go wrong.
To look sharp and put-together in this natural fiber, you have to choose your pieces carefully, making sure the fit, construction, and overall style are just right. And that’s where life/after/denim comes into play.
Each of our linen pieces features a cotton-linen blend that boasts all of the breathability of 100% linen, but with far less wrinkling. As such, they maintain a tailored fit no matter how hot and humid the air, and no matter where you take them.
A Laidback Look for Every OccasionBackyard Look: If you’re headed to an outdoor party or BBQ, simply pair your short sleeve linen shirt with a classic chino short for a crisp look.
Outdoor Stroll: Spending the day at the pool or farmer’s market? Grab the linen Harbor Pant and pair with your favorite cotton tee and you'll be out the door.
Seaside Style: If drinks by the ocean is on the agenda, throw on a long sleeve linen shirt and bring along a cardigan in case you catch a chill in the salty ocean air.
