Every man needs a summer alternative to his stiffer winter suit. Gentlemen, look no further than seersucker! A lightweight cotton fabric that you'll be relieved to wear during the sweltering months. It's a light, thin alternative to heavier formal fabrics with a crisp hand-feel, whose name is borrowed from the word and appearance of sugarcane, referencing the plants smooth and rough stripes. Seersucker was introduced in the late 19th century and was popularized throughout the 1920s and 1930s. When worn today by many a dapper man, it's evocative of a time gone by. We recommend investing in one of the seersucker suit jackets that follow to ensure that your money is wisely spent. If the fabric has been around this long, it's practically a guarantee that it will remain just as timeless in the decades that come. And might we mention just one more time how much cooler you'll feel? Literally. Opening image: macys.com
