Traditionally, Seersucker was introduced as a lighter alternative for suits and clothes in humid regions. Great for spring and summer, seersucker is woven in a way that ensures threads are bunched together, causing fabric to sit just off the body providing air flow to keep you cool. Seersucker is also super lightweight and breezy. This lightweight material tends to billow and add some bulk, so don’t shy away from opting from a slimmer fit or sizing down if you’re looking for a slightly more fitted look.
