Linen is easily one of the most polarizing fabrics among the discerning style set, with many bent on its banishment, but its redeeming features really can’t be ignored. After all, it’s the official fabric of summer. Linen is light, soft and easy on the skin, and it wicks away moisture. Seriously, linen is your friend.

While it’s true that linen might have once been the reserve of your painfully uncool, problematic, conservative uncle, thanks to its recent runway revival, linen shirts have never been more readily available in a range of achingly trendy silhouettes, prints, cuts and hues.

To make sure you nail your summer style in equal parts steez and comfort, we’ve rounded up 10 linen shirts that tick every box. Best of all, they’re all available to buy now.
