Today’s latest theme is as clean and fresh as you’d expect a theme named Linen to be. It’s also an impressively adaptable theme with an array of options that make personalizing it simple and easy. If you’re publishing articles in a magazine, pages for a business site, or your own personal blog, you’ll find Linen’s elegant style perfect for you. And it’s yours for the lifetime of your blog for only $68.
Just like the other premium themes from The Theme Foundry Linen is packed with features. Linen beautifully highlights posts with featured images by sliding them across the home page. You can add thumbnails to each post and upload your own logo or custom background. You can even customize the typography with a selection of seven accent fonts and eight different body fonts!

I really, really like this one! Thanks.
Nice theme … but still gonna stick to Mystique. :P
How seasonably appropriate!
I am really happy with this one! I will say I have not liked some of the previous themes coming out. Yet, I do think it is a bit pricey, perhaps you could explain to me if there are some hidden features that make this the price it is?
It’s a nice looking theme … I have to say that these premium themes are way too rich for my pocket though.
I was just admiring this theme on the Theme Foundry site. I love it’s simplicity and elegance. It’s the first paid theme that’s appealed to my sense of style. Congratulations on adding it to the menu of possibilities.
It seems every new theme requires payment. Not the best way to treat loyal WordPress bloggers.
Looks way too nice to be paid for. :) Consider dropping the fee on this one please!
Τhis is exactly what i want for my blog.
Please give us a free magazine style theme with Featured Post Slider!
None from the free themes have something like this.
Thank you for constantly coming up with different theme options — the diversity of options on WordPress is amazing! :)
Nice ‘n clean!
Wow, this is gorgeous — just wish it were free! So many new free ones to choose from — I think I’ll stick with one of those!
Nice. Eventually I’ll take the plunge and buy one of the slider themes.
I like the lighter themes – I find you have too many dark themes. But something with a unique header space and small-print fonts are nice. Something classy.
Pretty, but I’d stick to my present theme. :)
I was just lamenting to myself how limited the fonts are for the .com blogs like mine. This is intriguing. Can one have a trial spin?
Just getting started will soon try it out. :-)
Easy theme again.
I like it!
Very fresh and crisp.
It’s very plain and simple.
Look like WordPress.com has been pretty aggressive in rolling out new theme recently.. this is GOOD!
Although most of the users may not be willing to pay for a theme, but sometime it may be an exception too, just to make the blog look per what you need!
Great work! But looks similar to previous ones. can we have some more colorful choices?
Not so new really. But it’s always nice to have one more option.
And, yes, more dark themes, please!
It’s really clean, simple, functional, and the best of all it reminds me summer. :D
Is there a way to see what you mean by sliding posts and thumbnails (and the different fonts) without buying this first? I have tried previewing it, but I don’t know what you mean by these terms.
I love the simplicity of it. Unfortunately, it’s not free. I’m looking forward to new free themes.
I really love this new theme – Very fresh and clean and I would switch over to it in a heartbeat … But I wish it wasn’t $68 – It’s a bit too simple for that amount of money.
It looks nice, but it’s not exactly what I’m looking for.
I like it…too bad i don’t have spare 68 dollars. Maybe next one could be for free? :D
Really like this one but feels a little too minimalist for sixty eight bucks. I don’t know, but really do like it.
Looks great! Does this work on self-hosted?
Sorry but it’s not really my style.
Slick. Good work. Price is a bit steep though.
I like clean. =)
I like to change themes every once in a while, and having to pay for a theme is not worth it for me. I hope that WordPress continues to submit free themes and hope that paid themes are not going to become the trend or the rule rather than the exception.
Nice! I would like to see a bit more color though.
This is really nice. :)
Nice and simple. Thanks.
I like this theme. Well-designed, clean and (most important for me) good choice of fonts and font sizes. Don’t see what’s so linen-y about it, but I guess that is the designer’s creative license.
Crisp and clean. I like it.
Looks great-cleanly uncluttered.
It is amazing.
An extremely professional look, but without being staid or formal. My favorite feature is that you can easily customize type fonts. It is so cool to be able to harmonize type fonts with content.
If this were one of the free themes I would be ALL OVER it! I love clean, crisp themes, they don’t take away from the content. Great work!
Linen.. looks simple and clean.. I’m waiting for the free edition. :)
Looks great, but I want to see more free themes.
I like it, very professional.
Glad to see continuing process on the themes. Looking forward to seeing what is coming up for both my free and self hosted sites.
Would be great if free!
I hope you all will be releasing more colourful themes.
Beautiful theme, hope there is going to be a similar free one soon.
This is definitely for photography showcase blog, which is great for me in the future.
It’s just cool and simple, love it!!
I love this, but i am not willing to fork out that much money. We need more free themes!
A little too simple for my taste, especially with the price tag!
I really like it!
I’d buy it if I get the option to dry clean. Otherwise I’ll stick with my blanket.
I like black blogs.
Interesting. But I like the one I have now.
Now that’s a very pretty theme! Just a pity I’m not writing regularly enough to get myself a $68-theme… yet. ;-)
I was expecting a free clean simple theme with large custom header image.
Thank you! I like it!
The most beautiful theme ever. Worth every dollar. Thanks Foundry!
I love it! Very impressive!
If I didn’t love the theme I’m using right now to bits, I would use this for sure! x
I love this theme and am actually considering plopping down the moolah for it. Good job, WordPress!
I like the minimalist ones like this one, I find they are the best for applying your own logos.
I like it, clean and Simple. Well done and easy to read. The most important quality is readability!
Nice and comprehensive information for everyone. My compliments for WordPress!
Nice! Simple and clean. Great job
Oh my. Yes yes yes yes yes. Everything is right with this theme.
OK. I caved. Bought the theme and installed it yesterday. It looks AWESOME! Thanks so much WP.
Linen – appropriately named.
It’s nothing different than from some of those already available.
I actually like it.
Awesome and clean but I think it’s priced a little too high.
What does that say on it? Singing sand?
Nice and simple.
Yes, definitely very well thought theme which catches the eye at the first sight. Reading content is incredibly good as well, 9 out of 10 from me as in it could always be better.
It’s clean, simple, professional, and I love both the ‘Read More’ function on the articles and the slidebar at the top.
This is almost the same as Duster, which is free.
I like the sliding option. Good work! :-)
