Summer Jackets - Seersucker


Seersucker jacket and suit

The term "seersucker" comes from the Hindi word "sīrsakar" that had itself been borrowed from the Persian compound "shīroshakar" (meaning "milk and sugar"). This refers to the gritty texture ("sugar") of the raised stripes and the smooth ("milk") side. Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled or puckered appearance.

It was a great favourite of the warmer British Colonies and has always been synonymous with the American Deep South.

It is usually a light blue and white stripe as per the picture above, but there are some gorgeous plain seersuckers, and the plain navy seersucker has proven very popular with customers over the last few years.

Bespoke Jackets made using Seersucker are £695.00

(a surcharge made be made for chest size 48" and over as well as for some hand printed linings)
