I love this shirt -
By: Racoon from Salt Lake City, UT
My last Sweetwater linen shirt has become my gardening shirt as it is so cool and easy to wear. But it is too worn to wear in public so it was time for a new one. This one is just as wonderful - crisp, comfortable and beautiful. I bought the navy this time and love it for later summer. After many years of wear I'm sure it will become another good gardening shirt. I hope you keep offering them, Orvis,

Most important pieces of my wardrobe -

These blouses have been a favorite of mine for years! They have a wonderful fit. They are loose enough to feel cool and comfy and still look great with dressier clothes,They are my go to items. The length is perfect. They eliminate the need to tuck in a blouse, but look neat and polished. I hope they never stop offering these tops. I also loved the super soft cotton version but those are hard to find now. The no iron cotton is a bit stiff and irritates my skin. I keep hoping they will bring the softer cotton back. I don't know what I would do without these lovely linen blouses!

I have had others back over two years ago. Bought some more for a trip to South America. I do iron them a bit, but I know some like it just out of the drier.

I wasn't a fan of linen, but after buying one of these shirts, I bought two more. They are very comfortable and fit nicely. The turquoise color is lovely.
The original natural fabric
The oldest fiber known to man, linen is also the most natural and most environmentally friendly fiber in the world. From the blue-flowered linum (or common flax) plant that is native to temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, flax has been grown for thousands of years without any damage to the environment.
The Power of Flax
Flax is a completely renewable resource and every part of the plant is used, therefore eliminating any waste. The fibers are used for textiles or paper, the resulting linseed oil is sought after for oil paints and soap, flax seeds and flax seed oil are prized for their nutritional value.
Fortitude - In and Out of Soil
A hearty plant that thrives in many diverse environments, flax requires very little fertilizer or pesticides—many times less than cotton. The resulting linen fabric is also fully biodegradeable and can be totally recycled.
Linen Through the Ages
Linen is thought to have originated in ancient Mesopotamia. The ancient Egyptians wrapped their mummies in linen strips, taking advantage of the fabric’s inherent natural strength. The strongest of all vegetable fibers, linen is two-to-three times stronger than cotton. It is actually stronger when wet, which is why it washes so well and is so durable.
Built to Last
Linen becomes softer and more comfortable with age. It absorbs moisture far better than cotton and dries more quickly, making it ideal wear for humid summers and tropical climates. Highly breathable and anti-allergenic, linen has UV-protection properties as well. Linen holds dyes and prints with excellent color fastness, so it is available in every color and print imaginable.
Ancient History to Modern Day
Today, linen is widely used for clothing, bedding, upholstery fabrics and household tablecloths, napkins, and towels. Keeping our commitment to conservation efforts and sustainability is easy with this truly renewable natural fabric. Orvis offers a full range of men’s and women’s apparel in classic, breathable, and eco-friendly fabric.
