Is it warm enough to talk about linen yet? I think so. Indeed, it’s that time of year when the weather starts teasing us with summer heat and days filled with sunshine, reminding us of coming hot summer days. No matter what activities you have planned for your summer, J.Hilburn can set you up in the perfect attire. A classy summer favorite is linen, but what’s so cool about it, anyway?
Linen cloth is made from the flax plant, which has a hollow reed, giving the fabric a unique composition and set of attributes. When processed and dried, the fibers are breathable, light to wear and very durable making the fabric the ideal option for summer weather. Basically, it is perfect for keeping you cool in the heat; it is also designed to avoid stretching and resist tears. The fibers create a texturized look, giving it that casual cool style. Because of its texture and lightness, linen suits, shirts, and trousers can be dressed up or down for your summer weekend get-together or an important day at the office.
We are happy to make many of our linen clothing using fabrics from Italy’s Albini mill. Albini was founded in 1876 in Albino, Italy and is proudly still family-run. Albini is world-renowned for their incredible design archives, and for weaving with only the finest cotton yarns available to produce the highest quality shirting.
J.Hilburn offers a variety of beautiful 100% linen shirts that can be fit and customized to match your personal style. We also offer several blends that resist the wrinkles that can sometimes occur, including chambray linen blend trousers, wool silk linen blend jackets and several blended shirt options. The range of products offered this year in our summer collection from J.Hilburn was crafted specifically to give you the exact style you need while providing comfort, class and, of course, personalization. Pro tip, add in some of J.Hilburn’s other great fabrics to create a summer style texture mix that is full of depth and movement.
We’ve featured some of our favorite styles above, but we have many more to choose from and the ability to personalize each with options to fit you perfectly. I’m here to help you craft your summer wardrobe for every occasion and with our linen options, you can confidently enjoy a hot summer in comfortable cool style.
