How to wear a linen suit?
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.
