Modern Style Details History Made from puckered cotton fabric, our Seersucker Summer Suit embodies the essence of summery style. This ultimate summer suit features a two-button notch design and fits current, close to your body without restricting. Seersucker’s unique puckered texture makes it a natural performance fabric, allowing for excellent breathability, and it also means that pressing is not necessary – both exceptional qualities for your tropical destination or summer wedding. You’ll stay cool in your seersucker suit for years to come. The jacket features a classic two-button, single vent, notch lapel design. And modern details include darted front, four-button detail at sleeves, and flap pockets. Jacket and pants sizes are chosen separately making for easy fit and alteration. Made from 100% Cotton – jacket body lining is poly/cotton for breathability and sleeve lining is 100% poly in our signature blue stripe. How to Measure for your Suit The word Seersucker originates from the Persian words “shir u shakar”, meaning “milk and sugar”, because of its smooth and rough stripes resembling the smooth surface of milk and bumpy texture of sugar. Joseph Haspel, who founded a small manufacturing business in 1909 in New Orleans, is said to have created a seersucker garment for the working class. But the fabric was soon embraced by Southern gentlemen and eventually by well-to-do Ivy Leaguers. It was famously worn by FDR, West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd, actor Andy Griffith as TV’s Matlock, and actor Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch.
