Linen Suit from H&M

Linen suits are a great way to deal with the heat during the summer months. The main reason being that linen breathes so well. It provides exceptional coolness and freshness while having you look your dapper best.

Linen suits are no longer just the mark of vacationing gentlemen from the American South or Mediterranean. The new generation of linen suits come in more colors and is cut to be dressier. This means you can easily wear the same accessories (pocket square, tie bar, formal watch) you would with a regular suit. Stores like UniqloH&M, and J.Crew are all good options with many different colors and styles to choose from.

One thing to keep in mind, linen suits will wrinkle. No need to get scared or frustrated though. This is what gives linen suits its character. You can compare this to your best pair of jeans having lines and wear marks.

    Good look, but a four-in-hand looks the best with a knit tie imo. Also a light blue shirt would’ve lifted the outfit.

      Appreciate the feedback Henri. You’re 100% right, there are a number of different ways to mix it up with this look. Thanks again!

    Hi, love the look. I’m looking at a similar suit H&M is offering this year. How do you find the lining breathes? Is it still pretty cool in spite of the lining?

    Thanks!

      Thanks for the message Skyler. This one breathes pretty decent. However, if you’re ok with just a blazer and want one that breathes perfectly, then I recommend going with Uniqlo’s linen blazers.

        Aren’t Uniqlo’s sleeves lined in polyester though?
