As much as we love our denims, we all agree that they can be a pain to put on during sweat-filled summers. So, over the years, we have looked elsewhere {in high-end stores and at local shops} for a less punishing and yet fashionable alternative. We’ve come up with cottons and viscose and what not but it is the light-as-air linen that has found the most favour with us. LBB scouts through Bangalore’s store for the perfect pair of smart trousers.
