Those are def going to look more bulbous than Alden loafs, in my opinion. But, realistically, unless you're intending to pair with tailored wear (which doesn't sound the case) I think they'd be fine for just about any other getup

Impulse bought the linen overshirt. They are copying Zegna's oversized pockets but so is everyone else.

Might be a good place to stock up on linen t-shirts for summer. Lots of colors.

I just can’t get over the winkle…
Wrinkle? I kinda like it. The heavier linen tailoring doesn’t wrinkle horribly but it is noticeable.

I've found that I always think I'm going to enjoy linen more than I do when I actually wear it.
I do have a pair of heavier linen trousers that I like quite a bit.
The t-shirts are interesting though, I have a ton of Todd Snyder I'm a fan of the brand.

I wear linen t shirts all summer. Very breathable and they dry fast. Wearing linen dress shirts and pants to work in the summer is fine. They do wrinkle fast but the nicer stuff, particularly Italian linen dress shirts, will last all day for the most part.

Greg from NMWA was just here in DC on Thursday and I ordered a white linen suit from NMWA x Sartoria Carrara. Got it in a very subdued, faded white and think I’ll be able to pull it off at work.

I picked up the beach pants and a Montauk polo.
