Head for any hot country on earth and chances are the best dressed people you encounter will be swathed in linen. And there’s a good reason for that. Linen fabrics have been worn for at least 10,000 years. The lightweight fabric is more durable than cotton (only silk is stronger), takes color well and tailors beautifully, while the open weave lets through whatever breeze there is to cool you. Linen can absorb more moisture than cotton, but releases it quicker, making it an excellent choice for humid summers in Central Virginia. Will it wrinkle? Guaranteed. But a good pressing will keep you looking professional enough for the office or an evening dining outside at a sidewalk café.
