The perfect linen shirt for men

Linen or flax as its also known, is considered one of the most ideal fabrics for summer. It is renowned for creasing with wear, but that’s its beauty; it says summer casual in a big way. Our Ritz Mid Blue linen shirt is a great example and ideal for any occasion. Worn with a soft tailored jacket and maybe teamed with our Cream Linen drawstring trousers, it’s a ‘go anywhere’ outfit for summer events or just hanging out with your friends. Hard wearing and strong it’s a great fabric to have in your wardrobe. 
Linen has been worn as clothing for thousands of years, as one of the first woven fabrics. It was worn year round and was once the most universally used luxury cloth worn by the noble and wealthy.
So why not consider it an all year round fabric, as it works just as well in the autumn or spring. Wear with our Tailored slim fit t-shirt underneath your linen shirt in one of the new washed out summer colours or maybe even with a tie to create a great formal/casual out fit that would look great at any summer wedding, special occasion, or just because it looks and feels so great.  As well as our off the peg selection, we also have an extensive selection of great linen fabrics to choose from should you want to have something special made.
