Don't let the summer heat cramp your style. From Alex Mill to Everlane, shop the best linen shirts for men.
Summer is reaching its peak, which means so are sky-high temperatures and stifling humidity. Getting dressed for 90-degree days brings a unique challenge, but it's no reason to resort to wearing threadbare tank tops until September.
Nothing ruins a good outfit quite like unsightly sweat stains, so investing in quality materials such as linen is key to looking and feeling good all summer long. From vacation-ready button downs to polo shirts for the office, we've rounded up the best linen shirts for men. You can mix these practical pieces with shorts and sandals after a swim or denim on a balmy evening.
Naturally lightweight and cooling, linen is one of our favorite fabrics for summer thanks to its ability to bring a breeziness to your outfits. Made from flaxseed fibers, the naturally-derived fabric offers superior breathability by allowing for better air circulation than synthetic fabrics such as polyester. Compared to fellow natural fabric cotton, linen is stiffer and more durable — making it essential for surviving summer.
Below, check out the best and most breathable linen shirts for men to help you keep your cool.
