    Its definitely office dependent.

    My current office is super casual. I was actually told to not wear a suit, or even a blazer, during my interview. Linen is totally fine here, without question.

    My last office was a manufacturing company. Pretty typical Pacific Northwest business casual, so I would do it. I frequently wore linen and cotton/wool blend blazers to that office. Sure, they wrinkled a bit, but no one else but the CEO even wore a blazer and I definitely looked sharper than most. I was the "blazer guy" in the office.

    The company before that I was working for an accounting firm and did financial statement audits. I would have not done it there as we had a more conservative culture.
