For such a sensible cloth, Seersucker has received something of a bad rap over the years; all considerations of its positive contribution to men’s wardrobes smeared by stylish misgivings. In its most popular colour way of pale pastel stripes it’s just a little too ‘fun’ to be taken seriously by most chaps. This season, at Timothy Everest, we’re making it our business to right this sartorial wrong rep.
Seersucker is a wonderfully complex, breathable textile. Its name derives from the Persian words for “milk & sugar”, a poetic ode to the rough and smooth undulations of the material. Its origins in the Middle East, and its journey to the balmy climes of the Southern USA all point to its tough, lightweight, eminent practicality for 40 degree plus conditions. This is a summer choice par excellence.
Highlighting the cloth’s strengths, we have utilised it for Spring / Summer 2019 in a handsome navy / black colourway to make up our Windsor Jacket and Pleated Pant. The jacket’s unlined, unstructured nature makes the most of its heatwave suitability, while the roomy nature of the high waisted trouser afford the wearer a dashing comfort, making the separates the ideal choice for the wedding and summer party season on our radars.
