New Orleans clothier Joseph Haspel, Sr. is often credited with creating the first seersucker suit (way back when, the fabric had a very casual, leisure-y connotation). Since then, men in hot, humid climates everywhere have turned to his brand for standard-setting seersuckers. If you’re looking to dip your toe into the pond, Haspel is the perfect place to start: Its suits are classic, foolproof, come in a range of colors and styles, and are available in both classic and modern cuts. 

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).

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.
Gone are the days of strict fashion rules. There we said it. The fashion world is constantly evolving, and we must evolve with it or risk extinction like so many other American fashion mainstays.
