Linen is, hands down, the most comfortable, versatile fabric for warmer weather. After all, a good linen shirt is lightweight and cool, and looks smart for almost any occasion: with shorts on the beach, sleeves rolled up or under a full, matching suit for a smart event. Plus, if you haven’t already met Douglas, you’ll want to. This is a shirt that’s a bit of an icon in the Morris collection. With its classic button-down collar, slightly rounded single cuff, 100% linen fabrication and cool, seasonal stripes, it’s an instant hit whenever, wherever, however you choose to wear it.
Linen is made from the flax plant. It is a crisp, clean and ultra-comfortable fabric that is both strong and durable. There’s also something luxurious and elegant – almost decadent – about linen, both in its feel, and because of its association with summer and warmer climates. Wear it with a casual suit (maybe even a linen one), jeans, chinos, shorts, or to the beach. We recommend fits that are on the more generous side for a more cooling, comfortable feel: a slim-fit linen shirt is just wrong. And don’t be shy of colours, stripes or checks – you’ll find plenty of them in the Morris collection.
