Billow Talk

Linen, light and diaphanous, is one of the most luxurious yet natural fabrics, allowing the skin to breathe on even the steamiest days. When a soft summer breeze ripples and billows the material, a man exudes a sexy, carefree stylishness. Every guy should own at least one linen shirt, especially since they’re available in a rainbow of sherbet hues.
