Shoul linen shirts fit the same as cotton shirts?

Or are they suppose to be more baggie?

Getting a MTM linen shirt tomorrow to use casually and wanted to know how much I should alter the fit.

why did you pick linen for the shirt over cotton?

That really depends on how you wear your cotton shirts. But I like mine to be looser fitting. Tight, rough linen doesn't feel too good against the skin and a big advantage of linen is air being able to flow through the open weave and onto your skin.

Depends on what look you're going for. I have fuller linens and slim ones, but only slim cotton shirts.

I wear my cotton tight. Thought on making this linen looser, but not balloon type.

Any pics of how linen shirts should fit?
