While true linen is a textile made from fibers of the flax plant, textiles made with a linen weave, even when made of cotton and other non-flax fibers, are also referred to as ‘linen’. These garments, especially true linen pieces, are valued for their exceptional breathability and comfort in hot weather. In our collection of shirts, we have a number of 100% linen pieces – while typically more casual in style, they can be dressed up to achieve a more formal look.
