What to wear with linen pants? - Page 3

post #31 of 38
Raoul Dufy shows how to wear linen (and the pants are brownish gray, probably flannel):



I stole his idea and sometimes wear an off-white linen sport coat with the trousers to this suit of 8/9 oz. flannel, to good effect I think:

Personally, 100% linen is always too heavy of a fabric for the 105 degree days we have here. I prefer a blend, like my Kent Wang shirt that is 80 cotton / 20 linen.

^^^^^^
i thought linen was the coolesst fibre?
But is it ok to wear linen pants that are slightly too short. Ive got 30inch length pants, and they are just about the right length now.
I heard linen shrinks a lot though which i expect mine to. Are linen pants slightly too short OK a look, with boat shoes, or espadrilles? Or even brown oxford type shoes?

Living in Florida, I wear linen a lot. I wash in cold and hang to dry then iron- mine have not shrunk appreciably at all. However linen in dryer ( because you weren't paying attention)- bad idea.

As for shirt, guyabera or similar style is what i usually go for, though this thread has given me some other ideas.

I'd like to ask the opposite of the original question: other than linen pantswhat to wear with a linen shirt in warmer climes? Somehow, mixing cotton pants with a linen shirt just doesn't feel right to me.

Looks fine, depending on the style of shirt. I do it frequently. I also wear linen shirts with jeans, shorts, and bathing suit for beach days.

you can always go for a cotton/linen blend as well.
