The tradition was started by Republican Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi in 1996 who wanted to "bring a little Southern charm to the Capitol" to remind the Senate of how Senators dressed before the advent of air conditioning in the 1950s. The tradition was renewed by Senator Bill Cassidy in 2014 and is an annual bipartisan celebration in the Senate.
“Seersucker is uniquely American – a beloved New Orleans invention. National Seersucker Day is an opportunity to come together as Americans and have fun with a summer staple,” - Dr. Cassidy

Seersucker often brings to mind the striped suit. And while that dandy suit may have brought us to the forefront, the same cool and comfortable pucker makes it perfect for all warm weather situations. Our seersucker shorts are nearly as popular as our tailored clothes. Classy and casual. Do your legs a favor and try a pair.
