Perhaps because seersucker has a slightly flamboyant name — instead of a monosyllable like “twill” — some guys may be a little intimidated by it. If it had a bland name, instead of an Anglicized version of the Persian shir o shakar, which means “milk and sugar,” would more men look at it differently?
So it really takes no special flair to pull off seersucker. The fabric is about as versatile as it gets. A classic combination of blue and white goes with basically everything. After all, what two colors are easier to match? What’s more, the lightweight cotton fabric will keep you cool in both senses of the word. And when it comes to formality, seersucker can take you from an outdoor wedding to a barefoot stroll on the beach.
This season we’ve got a full array of seersucker options: No less than four color choices and all sorts of mix and match possibilities.
In our separates program, we have two outstanding models that are debonair personified: a double-breasted suit jacket, and a single-breasted with optional vest for a rakish three-piece suit in seersucker. Now that’s something you don’t see every day. Accessorize these two formal outfits with your finest shirts, ties, shoes, cufflinks and pocket squares. A mint julep is optional.
A step down in formality with delightfully unexpected twists are our single-breasted model with one-button closure and side vents in both tan and black — so distinct people will think you had it custom-made.
And whether you decide to go with our separates program or combined suit, feel free to wear the jacket and trousers on their own. Unlike a sober business suit, seersucker suits break apart just fine. Pair the trousers with a polo shirt and navy blazer, or wear the jacket over white trousers for a classic summer look.
