For all the love we’ll be throwing to canvas footwear over the next few months, our favorite summer garment is a whole lot simpler than a sock-free shoe. We’re thinking, in this case, of the linen pant.

This specimen comes from Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair (by way of Opening Ceremony), and the styling is a pretty good lesson for anyone planning to don a pair this summer. It’s wrinkled, but not too wrinkled. In fact, we’d guess this pair has hung in a pants press for a few days. And more importantly, the gentleman has rolled the cuffs up to clam-digger heights to let his ankles breathe free.

Of course, it’ll work better if you’ve got a good pair of summer shoes handy…but that will have to wait for another post.
