1. Organic Fabric
If you want to wear as much organic material as possible, linen is a great choice. Organic materials such as linen, wool, and cotton are recommended fabrics if you want to limit your skin’s exposure to synthetic materials. In certain situations, such as when training MMA and grappling, it may be suitable to wear synthetics (polyester for rashguards etc.), but otherwise it is advisable to opt for organic fabrics.
2. Ancient European Garment
Legio Gloria linen garments are made in the ancient and heroic nation of Lithuania. All Legio Gloria clothes are made in Europe, which means that the products are made according to certain standards, and by people who receive a fair wage. The same cannot be said about clothing made in the Third World, where production standards are not regulated, and where the sweatshop workers are, most likely, not receiving a fair wage.
Moreover, Baltic linen has a long and illustrious history. During the Middle Ages linen was traded by the powerful Hanseatic League. The Hanseatic League was a trading league consisting of cities connected to the Baltic and the North Sea. Linen has been found in Swiss lake dwellings dating back to as early as 8000 BC. Linen garments have also been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. Epic!
3. Stylish Yet Comfortable
Linen is, as the title above suggests, both stylish and comfortable. Wearing linen is thus suitable when you want to wear a shirt, but at the same time be a bit more relaxed and casual. The only downside to linen is that it gets easily wrinkled, but since this is common knowledge, it will not make a linen shirt appear untidy. Moreover, linen as a fabric will look good even if it is a bit wrinkly (one could even say it is part of the charm!).
4. Perfect in Warm Weather
Just as wool keeps you warm and dry in cold and wet weather, so does linen keep you cool and fresh in warm weather. Linen as a fabric is both strong and breathable, this makes it ideal to wear during summer. Moreover, since the linen is breathable, it doesn’t allow moisture to build up, which makes it harder for bacteria to grow. So, if you have a sensitive skin, linen may alleviate certain symtoms.
So, if you intend to embark upon an expedition to an exotic destination, be sure to bring some linen garments.
Linen is known as the world’s strongest natural fiber and is more durable than cotton. Linen garments will serve you faithfully for a long time, if treated with care. Make sure to not wash it temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius. Treat the linen with care and it will reward you with loyalty!
