It’s officially Seersucker Season! Traditionally, my family wears Seersucker on Easter and everyone else seems to have gotten the memo. It’s the South!

Where did Seersucker come from?

Seersucker has ties to New Orleans by way of Joseph Haspel. While, he wasn’t the first manufacturer of seersucker suits, he played a huge role in it’s popularity when he founded his company in 1909.

Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric, that is worn in the spring and summer. Popular items include suits, dresses, and shorts for all ages.

Where can you find Seersucker?

Locally, Seersucker suits may be found at Haspels, Brooks Brothers, Banbury Cross, Haase’s, Nola Couture, Perlis, JoS A. Bank, Jolie & Elizabeth, and if you’re lucky, Steinmart.
