    I like lightweight Italian cotton, linen, and cotton/linen blends for summer.

    Thanks, I do have some linen shirts I am planning to use for these purposes in the next summer. Another thing I've been wondering is collar types in this context. Currently all my dress shirts are semi spread and all my casual shirts, including oxfords and linens, are BD. I find that when going tieless with a sportcoat I still prefer BDs as I always have, but to incorporate casual ties (wool, knits.. things I never used for lack of opportunity) I feel spread collars would be preferable (as maybe you inferred from my english, I'm not American and while I love OCBDs they don't feel right with ties).
    So, what do you guys do? Thanks again.

    True. This is a good choice if you don't quite like how easily linen wrinkles. It does add a bit of weight to the fabric, though.
