I’ve been hunting for a seersucker shirt this summer, and I finally got to wear it during Labor Day Weekend, which is probably the latest you can get away with wearing this.
I found this Ralph Lauren seersucker shirt on eBay back in June for $15. I actually didn’t realize the shirt was short sleeve until it came in the mail. I glanced the description, I guess I missed that part. I did end up recently getting a Brooks Brothers long sleeve seersucker shirt about two weeks ago that needs some work. I’ll have to get that ready for next season.
I got the shirt shortened by two inches and had the sleeves and sides taken in to improve the overall fit and look. I spent $20 to get these alterations done. I really like the overall improvement of this shirt.
The pic on the top left was taken outside of my office on her P&S, I tried to correct the color, but I couldn’t without the whole picture getting too dark. There are some out takes over on my Tumblr.
Note: Seersucker originates from the Persian words “shir o shekar,” meaning “milk and sugar”, probably from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth surface of milk and bumpy texture of sugar.
