Sen. Bill Cassidy knows a thing or two about the persistent southern heat. You would, too, if you grew up in on the banks of the Mississippi in Lousiana’s lower half.
The South is stubbornly heat tolerant, with southerners coping by saying “it’s not the heat that will get you, it’s the humidity,” and by maintaining an ever-ready pitcher of sweet tea or Cheerwine. Southerners know that there’s no sense in trying to beat the heat (This North Carolina reporter will tell you, you simply can’t).
New Orleans' brand Haspel has been keeping folks cool for more than a hundred years and their Seersucker Short-Sleeve Shirt continues the tradition.
New Orleans' brand Haspel has been around for more than 110 years and knows a thing or two about clothes made to keep you cool when it's hot and muggy. I grew up there so believe me when I say August in New Orleans is no joke. Seersucker, as mentioned above, is an outstanding fabric for summer. Haspel's version is made in Italy from 100% Cotton and comes in a range of patterns, including traditional stripes. The solid colors—there are four choices—are a nice alternative if you're looking for the benefits of seersucker fabric without a pattern.
