Know Your Seersucker Before Spring Hits

Winter’s about to leave, and that means spring’s ready to make its merry way into our weekends, weeknights—heck, our whole lives.

Make sure your wardrobe changes accordingly.

This means more than simply swapping out a long-sleeve shirt for a short-sleeve shirt. It means more than switching from pants to shorts. When spring comes, it’s time to look at a change in fabric as well.

It’s not just about changing the style. It’s about changing the way you feel, maximizing the comfort you get out of your spring and summer. And in order to do that, it’s time to leave the wools at home and embrace a different kind of fabric weave that will have you feeling and looking your best this season: seersucker.

Seersucker Pants


This fabric is the ultimate summer casual pant. Consider the Seersucker Flat Front Pants from Berle.

As tempting as it might be to bust out the old pairs of khaki shorts when the temperature starts to rise again, it’s not always in the cards. You’ve got a job, after all, and that means you’ve got some dressing standards to adhere to. “Shoot,” you think, as you slip on your pants in the morning. “I’m going to have to feel warm and stuffy all spring.”

Not so with seersucker. Seersucker has a rich and vibrant history thanks to its professional uniform looks and spring/summer utility. (That’s a fancy way of saying that seersucker looks professional while being more comfortable than it has any right to be.) Just take a look at the seersucker pants here at Berle to find out what that means for your look. “Business casual” is still well within your reach this spring, and that doesn’t mean you have to continue wearing clothes better designed for your freezing neighbors up north.

When the weather really starts to shift and the sun makes its warm presence clear, then it’s time to switch to shorts. Seersucker shorts like the ones at Berle are ideal for hot summer days when you can’t think of anything else to wear that’s remotely dressy. Seersucker is a cotton weave, remember, so that means it’s as light and fluffy as the material it’s made from. Yet there’s something a little “dressier” about seersucker; it’s the kind of thing you can wear to a beach party and still feel confident that you’re the best-dressed person there. Not that you’re paying attention to that sort of thing, of course.

Two Seersucker Items to Change Your Wardrobe this Spring

The beauty of seersucker is that it doesn’t have to represent a major shift in your wardrobe. You can still wear seersucker with your usual slacks/button-down combination for work. You can still wear shorts in the summer and feel like your legs are breathing. Seersucker is simply a fabric change you should keep in mind; a fabric weave that will leave your wardrobe a little dressier, and a little more ready to work with the hot weather.
