There are many opinions regarding Seersucker suits; some think it’s not flattering, which sure, can be true if you wear the wrong Seersucker suit. We’re here to show you how to avoid these problems when wearing the right one.
By having the suit custom made to your unique measurements, it will not only ensure a perfect fit but it will look really trendy. Remember that a Seersucker suit has vertical stripes and therefore creates volume, which is why a good fit is extra important when wearing this kind of fabric.
The material is in itself rather unusual, and a full Seersucker suit even more so, which is why this suit is sure to stand out next to a more 'regular' suit material (wool or cotton). Not only is it trendy, but a Seersucker suit is really practical too! It’s easily washable, you never have to iron it, and it is guaranteed the best suit fabric to wear in warmer temperatures.
FIRST THINGS FIRST; WHAT IS SEERSUCKER?
The fabric is made from a unique cotton weave, which causes the thread to “bunch together” in some places. This is what gives the fabric the unique trademark of bumpy appearance (“Pucker”). The “puckering”, combined with the lightweight cotton fabric, is what makes the Seersucker such a good fabric to wear when it’s warm out. The “puckering” allows the fabric to be held away from the body, allowing air circulation between the clothes and the skin.
WHEN DO YOU WEAR IT?
General speaking, avoid wearing it to office and professional events. A Seersucker suit is not the best choice when trying to make a serious and/or professional impression. A wool suit will give you a more “put together” and structured look.
Wear your Seersucker suit on hot summer days and evenings, as a casual alternative to the suit, or at dressier barbecues or beach parties.
Debatable, but yes. More and more opinions are leaning towards that it's ok to wear a Seersucker suit to a wedding. Both as a guest and as the groom.
HOW DO YOU WEAR IT?
For a less traditional look, wear a t-shirt underneath your Seersucker suit rather than a dress shirt. If you want to stay traditional and wear a dress shirt, make sure it's fitted to your measurements. When wearing a Seersucker suit, all pieces must look great and be tailored; not just the suit itself.
