Linen Shirts: Elegance and Comfort Guaranteed
The linen shirts for men offered by Bonjour le lin are essential pieces for those seeking both comfort and elegance. Linen, known for its lightweight and breathable qualities, is the preferred choice for crafting men's shirts. One of the major advantages of Bonjour le lin's linen shirts lies in their exceptional comfort.
Washed Linen for Superior Comfort
Our linen shirts are made from the highest quality washed linen. The linen we use has been developed in collaboration with a weaver in Portugal. The linen, before being transformed into shirts, bathrobes, boxer shorts, or tunics, undergoes a special chemical-free treatment to earn its washed linen designation, making it more durable and less prone to deformation or shrinkage due to repeated washing. This treatment also softens the linen, giving it a pleasant touch and a slightly textured appearance. A Bonjour le lin linen shirt will withstand successive summers without showing any signs of wear. The choice of a tightly woven fabric further enhances its flexibility and softness, which only improves with each subsequent wash.
A Linen Shirt for Every Occasion
The versatility of linen shirts is undeniable. Depending on your preference, you can choose a linen shirt with a French collar, buttons, or an officer collar. For a casual look, pair your linen shirt, preferably in white, with jeans and sneakers, and roll up the sleeves for an even cooler touch. Wear it open over a T-shirt or directly on your skin. If you're aiming for an elegant summer style, combine your linen shirt with linen trousers or complementary or contrasting Bermuda shorts, depending on your preferences.
For a touch of originality, opt for a linen shirt with an officer collar, also known as a Mao collar, which can be coordinated with leather shoes. Mao collar shirts have no points or buttons, and their collar is slightly rounded, creating a relaxed and modern look, ideal for a more casual atmosphere. If you want to go for a more formal style, wear it under a suit jacket. Regardless of your preference and the model you choose, a solid linen shirt remains an essential piece in any men's wardrobe.
Whether you opt for a long-sleeved or short-sleeved shirt depending on the time of year, our Bonjour le lin linen shirts are available in all 16 colors. Surprise yourself by choosing a linen shirt in shades such as coral, French blue, olive green, or old rose, or, if you prefer, stay more classic with a white, beige, or ivory shirt. Matching your linen shirt with a sweater or a stylish linen jacket will be effortless.
We recommend referring to the boutique's size guide to enhance your comfort experience with your new linen shirt by choosing a size that best suits your physique, with sizes ranging from XS to 4XL available in the store.
A Washed Linen Shirt, a Sustainable Choice
Washed linen is a more durable fabric based on several key factors.
Linen is environmentally sustainable because it requires much less water and chemicals for its cultivation and production than all other natural textile fibers, thus reducing its environmental impact during production. The fabric used for our entire collection is 100% linen, with no blends of cotton and linen or linen and ramie, which is of great importance to benefit from all the properties of this natural fiber.
Moreover, Bonjour le lin takes pride in its particularly virtuous manufacturing system by producing only items that have been pre-ordered by its customers. At Bonjour le lin, there is no mass production, and a minimum of scraps are either recycled into the making of smaller items, such as boxer shorts, placemat sets, coasters, or cocktail napkins, at best.
