I haven't seen too much fading in my linen, but then I also tend to wear pure linen tailored clothing in lighter colors that IMO better reflect its more casual nature. A 50/50 or thereabout wool / linen blend is probably a better choice for darker colors.

I am seriously considering having trousers made and just wearing this as a suit a couple of times per year. I have serious concerns about how long the fabric in question would last as trousers, but I doubt I would wear a suit that bold particularly often in any event. In general I prefer the jacket with pale blue and pink shirts.
