Having mulled over the issue, Izzy thinks that a reason so many American men are willing to wear short-sleeve dress shirts in the summer is that too few of them are aware of the amazing cooling properties of linen. Admittedly, linen can be expensive, and a 100% linen shirt might appear too wrinkly and casual for the office. The ideal solution is to don a dress shirt made of a linen/cotton blend, which doesn’t wrinkle or stretch as much. For some reason, though, these sort of shirts are hard to find.

After doing some digging, however, Izzy found these fine specimens at Brooks Brothers:

They may not be cheap, but would you place a price on not sweating?


  1. These are all spread-collar, which I usually avoid. Izzy, which combination of person and style is best suited for the spread-collar?

  2. These shirts prove the truth of the old adage, “when in doubt, go to Brooks.”
