Been thinking about this: I have a few linen shirts from Polo Ralph Lauren (PRL). A couple are quite soft and smooth but one is coarser and stiffer. Is softer linen considered 'better' quality or the differences are just suit fabric weaves which are stylistic and preferences?

Also, I've had these shirts for some time and I really haven't noticed much softening of the coarser linen shirt after numerous wash/wear.
