The White Royal Linen
Published on June 25, 2013
Nothing says "summer" like a lightweight linen. The fabric of choice for warmer weather, linen's crisp texture easily absorbs perspiration and doesn’t cling to the skin, allowing air to better circulate around the body. The White Royal Linen from our current Short Run Shirting Collection is made from a luxurious high thread count linen. The looser weave creates an incredibly lightweight shirt that is a great choice to wear casually untucked, as this shirt features a slightly shortened body, or under a jacket. Royal linen has a sleeker appearance and is a bit softer to the touch than traditional linen fabrics. Royal linen fabric feels cool to the touch and gradually gets softer with time, wash and wear. Extremely durable and naturally resistant to dirt and stains makes linen fairly low maintenance in terms of care. Frequent tumble drying can affect the growth pattern of the fabric, so we suggest avoiding the dryer when caring for linen. Ironing the fabric while it is still damp or steaming the fabric will result in an extremely crisp look. Whether dressed up or casual, The White Royal Linen is one of our sharpest looks of summer.
