Linen is probably the only fabric known to man which looks good even when crumpled. It's cool (literally), tough and remarkably fresh. If you're looking around to add to your wardrobe before the sun turns into a scorcher, look no further than this marvellous fabric. For your edification, we give you six styles that celebrate all things linen. From suits to trousers, this wonder fabric's your ally for all seasons, especially summer. Go raid the cabinet!
