Do you need a horse race or special occasion to wear a seersucker suit? No. Seersucker is a great summer fabric – lightweight and breathable – and works perfectly for the office or those hot summer days you when you just feel like wearing a suit.
In a classic blue stripe, a seersucker suit does carry a lot of baggage and you might not be able to wear it to the office without getting a bunch of uninvited comments about the Kentucky Derby. A brown stripe is less conspicuous and wildly increases a seersucker suit’s versatility. From a distance, it just looks like a tan suit.
