Sure, being covered up during a scorcher is probably the last thing you want to do, but since some occasions do require that you follow a more formal dress code, there’s simply no getting out of donning a suit when the event calls for it. The bright side? Wearing a suit in summer doesn’t have to be a dreadful affair.
If you haven’t yet, meet the linen suit. By its very nature, linen is lightweight and breezy, making it an ideal suiting fabric to turn to when temperatures are high. A suit in this material also has a more laidback look and feel, which not only matches the current tailoring moment in menswear, but it also seamlessly fits the mood that accompanies a summer celebration.

That said, if you’re shopping for a new linen suit, keep in mind what type of festivity you’ll be attending and whether wrinkles and creases—likely to result with any linen garment—could become a major problem. Instead, opt for a suit made from a cotton-linen blend, which will build more structure. You’ll still get to reap the rewards of a more breathable suit when you add linen to the mix.
Whatever the reason for your suiting needs this season, we’ve gathered the best men’s linen suits below, guaranteed to keep you looking and feeling fresh these summer months.
