Having read above that wool and linen blend wrinkles, I'm less enthused about the RTW Cordings 50% wool 50% linen jacket I consider after disasters in flannel and wool cashmere. Dance and sweat in lightweight flannel to get pilling, carry Filson rucksack on wool cashmere to rip lining and make holes.

For more casual summer shirts, I like linen/cotton blends. Get the airiness of the linen and still have a bit of wrinkle resistance.
