Loosen up with men’’s linen:

sartorial inspiration for brunching in style


loosen up with linen

In the words of Hardy Amies,

“a man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.”

Brunch may be the epitome of laid-back dining, but it’’s worth more than pyjamas. Linen is a tactile, adaptable staple that works all year round – think muted colours, unstructured styles and layering.

The blazer: A weekend blazer is the seasonal transition staple. Layer up with sweaters and scarves on chilly days and couple with a plain t-shirt on warmer ones.

Our favourite is the Reiss melange linen blazer (£155), made from pure linen and woven into a grey salt and pepper blend.

Style notes: For relaxed cool, wear with a crisp white shirt, chinos and penny loafers.

The shirt: Boden still focuses on relaxed casual – a collaboration with artist Mark Hearld cemented its position as a peculiarly British retailer.

Its ‘‘favourite’’ linen shirts (£55) are semi-fitted, with full-length sleeves ready for casual rolling up.

Style notes: Pair with a slim-leg jean or original chino to give your look classic masculinity.

The trousers: So much more comfortable than jeans, linen trousers are a weekend classic. This slim-fitting design from Ted Baker (£95) features unobtrusive design features. Available in charcoal and navy, but we like this teal version.

Style notes: Team with desert boots and a mid-length double-breasted jacket.
