Answering your key style questions.

Linen is always said to be a great summer fabric but I’m hesitant. Doesn’t it get wrinkled?  - Samuel (Montréal, QC)

Linen, especially in a humid climate like your native Montréal, is a great summer option. Lightweight, breathable, and practical, linen is a key summer fabric.

It’s true that it can develop a slight rumple but that’s only part of its rakish charm. High-end linen, as seen here in this full outfit, is made from tighter weaves that don’t necessarily crease as much and are robust enough to look sharp when used in more formal styles like this Canali sports jacket.

Overall, it will allow you to keep your look breezy at this summer’s full slate of weddings and outdoors parties.
