Best suited for summer

Want to look dapper at work and play? Linen jackets are what you should be seen wearing this summer.

If it’s summer, it has got to be linen. This granddaddy of all natural fibres has been around for almost as long as the guys who built the pyramids. And though it’s used to make everything from shirts to skirts, it’s the linen jacket that truly exudes elegance. The main highlights of the fabric is that it breathes beautifully, and it has a certain breezy charm that suggests a vacationing gent in the Mediterranean.

Needless to say, linen jackets have always been in vogue during summer. And it’s not just about dressing for work.

Try out the jacket with the polo shirt (enjoying a nice comeback this season) or with a T-shirt and look infinitely cool.
