I really appreciate pieces that I can wear in more than one way and part of the fun with menswear is the ability to take a standard “uniform” (shirt & pants, primarily) and dress it up or down.

And it is no wonder, with such a breathable fabric, that it gets used so often. Investing in these types of pieces, like this linen blazer, are completely seasonably appropriate but also strong style statements will help getting dressed a bit easier. So
