These men’s linen jackets are the cornerstone of transeasonal style

Sophisticated, understated and a timeless forever piece for your wardrobe – linen jackets offer a breathable and lightweight solution to warm spring evenings and cool summer nights.

What is linen and why’s it so great?

Known as one of the strongest fabrics in the world, linen is derived from plant flax fibres and offers a number of sustainable, ethical and health qualities. It’s anti-bacterial, temperature regulatory, odour-resistant, absorbent and an easy-to-look-after fabric. It’s also super soft and the perfect material to wear for warm weather and hot days.

How to style your linen jacket:

Crafted in a number of styles, linen is a highly versatile material that can be worn for formal and casual occasions alike. Dress it up with loafers and chinos or leather oxford shoes and tailored trousers – or dress it down with shorts and a tee or jeans and sneakers.
