Our linen shirt is not your father’s linen shirt. Gone is the billow. We prefer our excesses not in fabric form, but in friends, experiences, and good times. Our shirts are trim, but not tight. Our fabric: from Italy’s finest mills. Our buttons: mother of pearl. You’ll notice the Sunset Loop inside the placket for holding your shades in place as day turns to night, as it often does. You’ll notice the crescent collar, treated with stain protecter to prolong the life of your new shirt. Sweat need not apply.
