NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Haspel Clothing, the originator of the seersucker suit, delved into its archives to create a limited-edition tailored clothing and shirt collection to commemorate its 110th anniversary. The renowned brand, owned and operated by the Haspel family for four generations, landed on five distinct, heritage-inflected silhouettes—all crafted in vintage-style, tea-stained seersucker fabrics. In concert with this momentous anniversary, only 110 suits will be produced in each of the five models. Each suit will be numbered and feature a vintage Haspel label not used in decades by the brand.
“One hundred and ten years in business is an extraordinary accomplishment,” says Haspel CEO, and fourth-generation owner Laurie Haspel Aronson. “We spent a lot of time thinking about how to celebrate this very important milestone. We ultimately decided on this limited-edition capsule collection to pay tribute to our rich brand history. It is also a great way to remake some of our classic silhouettes and update them in a new, modern way.”
