Wear either as a linen garment in warm weather and as a denim when it cools down.
When you travel, you go from climate to climate, or if you live in a hot area, the AC might be freezing inside the building. Next to coolness and high absorbency, linen has one more very favorable property – good heat conductivity characteristics. Heat conductivity refers to the extent to which heat can be conveyed through the fabric. As linen quickly allows the heat to escape, it further improves cooling. It is claimed, that heat conductivity of linen is five times higher than wool and eighteen times higher than silk.
Worn as a layer inside of a winter coat, or as a light jacket inside the office:

- During the colder months, try layering linen garments under your winter coat as an insulating layer, then keep your linen vest or jacket on indoors.
