Men’s Summer Linen Suit Ideas for Weddings Abroad
It’s worth considering the local climate when styling your linen wedding suit. If the happy couple are tying the knot in tropical climes, then by all means go full linen. Shirt, blazer, trousers – the lot – confidence = sexy, comfort = confidence, breezy linen in warm weather = comfort. That’s just maths. And science. That’s maths and science, and you can’t argue with that.
For a wedding, you’re probably going to be leaning toward a tailored fit, which lends itself to both smart shoes with socks, or a nice pair of loafers with sockless ankles titillating any time-travelling Victorians at the reception whilst airing out your lower leg. There’s a bit of animosity surrounding the concept of the sockless man in the UK right now, but what happens at the destination wedding stays at the destination wedding, and you can definitely pull off a sockless look when you’re on holiday, so embrace the opportunity and make the most of this free-pass.
Another great way to style a linen suit is to play with texture by using your choice of shirt to contrast or complement your blazer but (spoiler alert) more on that later.
