Our Topper shirt in 3.5 oz Japanese Seersucker. Made in San Francisco, CA.
The big brains at Wikipedia say this about Seersucker:
The word came into English from Hindi, and originates from the Persian words shîr and shakar, literally meaning "milk and sugar", from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth texture of milk and the bumpy texture of sugar. Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled appearance in places. This feature causes the fabric to be mostly held away from the skin when worn, facilitating heat dissipation and air circulation. It also means that pressing is not necessary.
The "milk and sugar" part here is spot on but stay away from sugar as much as possible in your daily life. A tough transition but you will get used to it and eventually will get the real taste of food, without it. A good cookie now and then does not hurt, according to the nutritional department at Tellason...
Let's be clear, warm weather is around the corner and as much as we love tough guy shirts, it ain't a bad idea to have some light weight tops in your closet. If you haven't worn Seersucker since your last polo match in 1985, maybe now is the time. This Japanese fabric is 100% cotton, light weight and indigo dyed to perfection. It may even help you avoid the sweat trail down your back on that next cooker of a day. We decided to step further away from the Preppy life by offering it in our Topper shirt. A bit western, and equally workwear inspired.
