The rules for pulling off a linen blazer are much the same as those for any other blazer. Chiefly, it should fit properly. “Linen looks dreadful when it’s too tight,” says Bouteba. “So shop around for one cut slightly looser than a dinner jacket.”

Resist any temptation to wear it with a hat. Unless the aim is to actively communicate to the world in no uncertain terms that the Man from Del Monte is your all-time style icon.

Other than that, it’s pretty much plain sailing: wear yours with shirts, Breton T-shirts, lightweight chinos and chino shorts. And maybe invest in a garment steamer if you don’t want to spend your entire summer ironing or hanging out at the dry cleaners.
