5 of the Best Linen Suits for Summer 2019
Those summer wedding invitations are going to be coming in thick and fast, and a linen suit is the perfect companion for this. Firstly, linen is a sustainable fabric and secondly, you won’t realise the comfort of a linen suit on a hot day until you experience it first-hand. Have you ever been in a work meeting or lunch date in July/August in a city? You’re just one hot sticky mess that cannot think about anything else other than having a cold shower. Well, once you go linen and realise how cool and comfortable this fabric is, you’ll never go back (trust us!). With this in mind we’ve been looking for some of the best linen suits to get you through the sizzling season ahead:
White Stuff Linen Suit
This standout suit from White Stuff comes in two colourways and is actually the brand’s first range of three-piece linen suits. A cool feature is the lining prints which match to a selection of their printed shirts. So, get set for race season with a brand-new suit; the lightweight material is ideal for warmer weather and creates a classy Springtime aesthetic. The Northcote 100% linen suit is just the ticket for looking dapper in the heat whilst keeping cool.
Hugo Boss Unstructured Linen Suit
A linen suit is certainly a great option for warm-weather events such as weddings or work trips to hot climates – the material regulates body temperature and has a handsome lustre, too. Cut from breathable fabric, this Hugo Boss suit is softly tailored in a slim shape with minimal internal structure for a more relaxed appearance.
Richard James Mayfair Linen Suit
Crafted from Italian-woven linen in a faded weave, this Richard James Mayfair suit jacket exudes effortless finesse. Cut to a relaxed slim fit, it features a two-button front, notch lapels, flap side pockets, a welt breast pocket, four-button cuffs, and two vents to the reverse. Pair with the matching trousers, a fitted shirt, and silk tie to complete a dapper warm weather ensemble.
Tu Linen-Blend Suit
Go for a gentlemanly dapper look with this Tu stone Herringbone suit. Crafted from linen and cotton in a tailored fit, it has a two-button single breasted front, two front pockets and a small breast pocket where you can choose to pull the lining out to look like a pocket square or leave it in for a more casual vibe. It’s also fully lined with three inside pockets for all your essentials.
Oscar Jacobson Linen-Blend Suit
Some guys are wary of linen suits because of their tendency to crease and look a little crumpled by the end of the day. Honestly, we think that’s part of the appeal of pure linen, but when you want something that holds its own a little better while remaining lightweight and breezy, Oscar Jacobson’s linen and wool blend Ferry suit will be your friend. It is half lined and cut to a classic two button silhouette.
