The Pick: The best casual linen summer shirt

Slightly crumpled and collarless, let Luca Faloni show you true Italian style

The light linen shirt is a summer staple. Formal enough that it can be worn to smarter events or parties, but softer and more comfortable than your usual starched shirting, the benefits of having a good linen shirt in your wardrobe are many. And nobody does it better than Luca Faloni.

The Pick: The best casual linen summer shirt

The Italian brand’s Chambray Blue Versilia Linen Shirt sour pick of the best, not least because of its stylish band collar – a feature that affords even more casual to smart casual. Crafted in Bergamo, North Italy, the linen used by Luca Faloni comes from the best Italian mills, to ensure softness and durability. And, despite its propensity to crease, the brand believes that a slightly crumpled effect can look sophisticated if worn with the right attitude.

Mother of pearl buttons finish the Versilia, and a slim fit cut keeps the shirt from bagging. Undeniably the best warm weather fabric, we’d recommend pairing this shirt with tailored shorts or a pair of slim chinos. But, however you build your outfit, take inspiration from the French and Italian playboys of old, and showcase your crumpled linen with pride.
