Traditionally a seersucker suit is known by its signature blue and white stripes, because this was The Original and popularized in the early 1900’s by my great-grandfather Joseph Haspel, Sr, who was known for being a fabric innovator in the men’s fashion realm. His seersucker wash-and-wear suits have graced the physiques of Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, and nearly every President since Calvin Coolidge.
The number one rule about seersucker is that there are no rules. Traditional fashion rules no longer apply and haven’t for a while. Embracing new and different ways of wearing the classics allows for personal creativity, innovation, and true opportunities for self-expression.
