I stumbled across Toscano linen shirts in a pricey clothing store in Toas, NM last Summer. I tried one on, and I was hooked: I paid $90 (plus tax) apiece for THREE of them because the feel, fit and looks of these shirts was unprecedented for me, and I'm a pretty old dude. When I found out that Sierra Trading Post had them for GREATLY LESS than $90, I got really pumped, and by now I've bought over twenty of them from Sierra. (What if they stop making them????) Good linen shirts have a cool heaviness to them, they fit beautifully, and have long tails like quality shirts should, and good linen shirts look better wrinkled than cotton ones do pressed.
I haven't been hooked an ANY clothing item like this since I got my first Levi's in the seventh grade, too many years ago to say. Further, I'm going to buy some more of these before they're all gone.

As far as I am concerned, there is no better material for summertime wear than linen. This shirt fit very comfortably. I ordered the blue shirt, and thought it was appropriate for walking around town and sitting down to dinner. I think I may order another one
“What ccolor is the inside Toscano label on the neck? I have a few from different seasons and notice a slightly different fit. Also is this more of a soft or coarse linen? Toscano seems to have made a variety over the past couple of years”
