The quintessential linen shirt

The quintessential linen shirt

We are so excited to be able to introduce to you the new collection of tailored linen shirts. The quintessential linen shirt is perhaps one of the most timeless summer staples. Available in three classic colours and two tailored fits, a Worboys linen shirt is an effortless choice that will keep you cool and stylish.

A bit about linen

Linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant, the very nature of linen allows air to circulate the body keeping you cool. Its structure and low thread count means it's less likely to cling to the skin. Linen is also highly absorbent and therefore has the ability to quickly absorb moisture from the body leaving you fresh during those summer days.

The best way to tell the difference between a high and poor quality linen is to wash it. After the first few washes a quality linen will shine through. A premium linen will become softer as well as retaining its shape and colour. So just like a good wine, It only improves with age. Whereas, a poor quality linen will do the opposite.

Worboys linen shirt

The essential ingredients to a quality linen shirt are: 100% premium European linen and a flattering fit. These things may be obvious but one without the other can result in a linen shirt that is, shall we say, ‘below par’.

A Worboys linen shirt is made from the best European linen that starts off soft and will only get softer after every wash. A linen that is built to stand the test the time and will be a shirt that will see you through many holidays! Cut in two different styles, Worboys slim fit is a modern fit that gently tapers in at the waist creating a smooth and neat silhouette. In selected sizes we also offer a Worboys classic fit, that’s generously cut for those who prefer a traditional, more accommodating shape. Extra flourishes such as a single pink button hole and Worboys embroidered logo adds a touch of individuality, special, to Worboys shirts.

A linen shirt you can invest in. That will last you years, not just a season.

How to wear your linen shirt

A linen shirt is traditionally worn in warmer, humid climates and should generally follow the rule – less is more.

Its versatility offers itself to both day and night, whether you find yourself relaxing on a catamaran in the middle of Mediterranean or strolling through London on a hot summers day, a quality linen shirt is the summer staple of choice.

Wear your linen shirt with a pair of tailored shorts or a slim pair of chinos, creating a confident yet understated elegance. Footwear should be smart yet relaxed, a pair of boat shoes or a comfortable pair of suede espadrilles always bodes well. Accessories your shirt with a smart watch to add a touch of sophistication or leather bangles for a more relaxed look.

So with summer finally making an appearance in the UK, will you be investing in a Worboys linen shirt?
