Linen is the word on the UK’s collective lips right now. It’s the perfect fabric for British summers which, it turns out, are now hotter than a 12-hour megabus journey through all nine circles of hell.
Why? Because linen is lightweight, it’s breezy, and it dries much quicker than cotton. They’re your go-to outfit for summer wedding season. You’ll be thrilled to know, then, that our bestselling Linen Suits are back in stock, and we have two new colourways.
We caught up with long time friend of the brand and menswear expert, Leon Cerrone, to serve you up some linen inspiration and four ways to wear the suit.
First up, there’s the Black Linen Suit paired with a splash of colour from a Printed Cuban Shirt. We think this one gives off what we like to call friendly mystery vibes. At some point in our lives we’ve all known a super-nice fella who can’t do enough for us, but we’ve always suspected they’ve got a far more interesting past than they’re letting on.
Last up there’s the Natural Linen Suit with Forest Mini Cable Knit. Classy, this one. Classic and classy. There is literally no summer occasion this look isn’t perfect for. A funeral. Maybe not a funeral. There is no other occasion this look isn’t perfect for. We strongly recommend making this one part of your summer staple.
There you go, then. Four ways to wear the Perci Linen Suit. Remember, you’re always winning with linen. Winning with linning. Winnin’ with linen. Doesn’t work, see ya.
