    natural fabrics?

    Hey,

    After reading some things i started shopping for natural fabrics, and avoided polyester.
    However, I sometimes find the cotton shirts a bit too primitive, and I also see many premium brands who use blends.
    I bought an ASOS blazer made of natural cotton and linen, and found myself sweating in it..


    Any tips for this issue?

    If it's too hot for linen, it's probably too hot for a blazer.

    could it be the lining?
    maybe the cotton, or the quality of the linen?

    Haha, was going to say the same thing. If you can't wear linen, the last thing you want to be doing is layering up with a blazer....

    To the OP, I don't understand what your point is? Cotton too "primitive"?

    Some (linen) summer jackets don't have lining in the back, only in the sleeves and breast area. This means that for the largest part of the jacket it consists of a single layer of linen, which is probably the lightest fabric around...
    Indeed, if the rest of the lining is 100% synthetic, that could cause discomfort in the blazing sun...
