The long hot summer months can be agonizing when you have to wear a suit. Don’t let the scorching sun prevent you from attending memorable events. during these blistering hot months. You will be glad you read this blog while you are the only person that does not look like they are about to pass out at a beach gathering. A linen suit should be a requirement for every man’s wardrobe and here’s why:
Linen is a light weight fabric that provides ventilation and is ideal for the summer when the weather is not. Linen suits are available in a variety of colors, so for those of you that like to have options, don’t you worry, you’ll have plenty. I suggest that you choose a light cheerful color for your suit. It’s summer after all, so why not have some fun with your attire?
As a rule of thumb, remember that light colors reflect the sun light, whereas dark colors actually do the opposite and absorb it. That’s the reason why you see so many light colored suits in the summer. However, do not let this deter you from purchasing a dark linen suit if that is what you prefer.
Now you may ask is a summer suit worth all this trouble? It’s a matter of what kind of events you plan on attending. For example, would you still feel sharp at a fancy event in a polo and chinos? Obviously not, therefore a summer suit whether it’s made of linen or some other lightweight fabric is truly ideal for your summer festivities. It allows you to stay away from the heat while looking dapper.
