The Linen fabric is an effortless dream. Its loose weave and breathable nature compliments the WNU’s oversized style perfectly, making this comfortable shirt both easy and cool to wear.
INTRODUCTION The perfect Linen women’s shirt. Synonymous with summer, this timeless classic is definitely a wardrobe staple. The relaxed nature of this fabric beautifully compliments our Boyfriend style, which sits just off your shoulders and away from your body. As Linen emphasises the loose fit of our borrowed-from-the-boys’ shirts, we would recommend staying true to size as this will fit oversized on you done up and look effortless when worn undone. Although most popularly worn in warmer months on causal days, our Boyfriend Linen shirt is made with the same men’s tailoring in mind as all of our shirts, meaning you could easily wear this by the poolside on Sunday and to your 10am presentation on Monday.
The Linen short is designed to sit just on your waist or hips - whichever is most comfortable for you - with a slightly loose cut to the body. As these have been designed to offer a more generous fit, there is no need to order a size up, as your size will already be a relaxed fit.
MATERIAL Linen is a durable natural fibre derived from the flax plant, but why is Linen so good? The fibre itself is very strong, which makes it perfect for ensuring an item’s longevity, so you can wear your shirt time and time again. Plus, whilst all of our shirts can be worn year-round, you will find that linen is better than cotton in Summer as the loose weave of the fabric is comfortably light, making it both easy and cool to wear. The best bit? The relaxed, crumpled texture of washed linen means ironing is completely optional. Take a look at our blog post Meet The Materials, to see more about our family of Linen shirts.

SOURCING The fabric for our Linen shirts, made from the flax plant, is both sourced and woven in Portugal in our factories. We have ensured, through scrupulous auditing that both factories uphold the highest standard of working ethic and ensure a proper wage and working conditions. After the linen has been woven into our shirts, they are shipped to Kent, where staff members individually go through the orders to ensure the shirts are perfect for our customers.
STYLING When it comes to when to wear Linen, we would mostly recommend the warmer months, as the fabric is super light and breathable, making it perfect for summer heatwaves. All of our shirts are made with versatility in mind and styling can take our Linen collection from the office to the outdoors (- we would pick the beach, every time). If you are wondering what to wear with a Linen shirt, for a casual look we would say pair it with some denim shorts and a baseball cap; or, for a more feminine and elegant look, elevate your Linen by wearing it over a white silk slip skirt.
