The seersucker, woven with a characteristic puckered ridge texture, is a smart, cooling option that actively encourages air circulation.
The seersucker or railroad stripe is a cooling fabric with a characteristic puckered texture. Historically, silk and cotton threads were used so that the latter shrunk and bunched together when washed and treated while the silk remained smooth. Today, it is a matter of weaving skills, of alternating tighter and looser cotton warp threads. Invented in India, the seersucker actively increases air circulation for extra comfort on a hot day and minimizes contact with the skin. An ideal fabric or spring or summer days when you want to stay cool — style-wise, the distinct texture, which naturally gives each shirt a more structured look, lends itself to a smarter summer wardrobe.
