Next to cashmere, linen is undoubtedly the coastal grandmother’s textile of choice: Its breathable, textured weave is practically synonymous with casual elegance. This summer-ready Club Monaco Slim Linen Shirt , a pick from our guide to the best men’s button-up shirts , looks great on anyone (menswear muse Diane Keaton would approve) and is equally stylish paired with a wide-leg pant or layered over a flowy dress. While linen will be known—and either loved or hated—for its coarse, rumpled texture, this shirt feels pleasantly smooth to the touch. It’s also more polished than most, so you’ll still look put-together after a full day of gardening, cooking, and gazing thoughtfully at the sea.
