Linen holds up well in the summer or in any warm or tropical climates. Plus, the fabric is twice as strong as cotton and stays perspiration-free even on the hottest and most humid of days.

In addition, it becomes more comfortable to wear over time as it becomes softer and softer the longer it is washed and worn. However, the natural flax threads used in making linen do cause some wrinkling as they are not as flexible, say, as cotton threads. Nevertheless, the inflexibility also adds to linen’s strength and therefore makes it a rugged yet stylish choice to use in the manufacture of linen clothing.

As a result, you can wear linen shirts, shorts, pants or suits without it looking sad or limp. In fact, natural linen fabric retains as much as 15 to 20 percent in water content.

When is Linen Worn Around the World?

In seasonal locations in the US, UK, India and Australia, linen is generally worn during the summertime, or the hottest months of the year. You’ll generally see men in colder climates (such as Canada) wearing the flax fabric during June, July and August and from December through February in the Australian continent. Men in in colder climes will also wear linen on holiday in tropical locations too.

White linen suits are a popular form of beach wedding attire too. The relaxed yet classic styling is featured at beach weddings on the west coast of the U.S. as well as at weddings and receptions in Hawaii and Miami. A linen suit is also worn at nuptial events in Melbourne and Sydney and for wedding day festivities in parts of Europe and Asia too.

Wash Care & Drying Instructions

why linen clothingWhen caring for linen fabric, make sure that you read the directions for care on the label first. Some of the clothing may feature trimmings, linings, or pockets that may require it to be dry cleaned. Otherwise, you usually can machine wash in warm or cool temperatures.

When drying, lay them out flat to air dry rather than drying them in the drier as doing so can cause them to shrink. Also, avoid hanging pants, shirts or shorts on hangers to dry as marks may result because of the fiber’s in-elasticity. Pure linen / 100% linen should be slightly damp when it is ironed too.

While linen does tend to crease or wrinkle, this is the natural state of the fabric. Therefore, wrinkling also adds to the casual appeal of the material. Because linen fibers are absorbent, the fabric can be easily dyed.
