Linen is the fabric made of stems of flax plant. This cloth absorbs moist and is known for coolness and freshness when it’s hot. Men's linen fabrics are lightweight and breathable due to their loose weave. They are used for warmer weather suits, shirts and jackets. Linen garments are noted for their relaxed fit as 100% linen frays easily and is prone to wrinkling. Though wrinkles add effortless charm to linen, gentlemen opt for linen blends that are easy to tailor and maintain.
Men's linen is often mixed with cotton, wool and elastane. A linen blend is perfect for a casual suit or jacket to wear on a hot summer day. As pure linen has poor elasticity, wool or silk yarns blended into the weave make it stronger and more durable.
Cotton and linen fabrics are easy to wash and iron, highly breathable and featherweight. But the average composition would be 80-85% cotton and only 15-20% linen.
