Everyone knows seersucker is indispensable for warm weather. Including the Seersucker Cartel.

To make things easy on themselves, they've ordained that seersucker shall be white with identical narrow blue stripes, take it or leave it.

Well, a recent trip to the fabric archives in Milan has broken the monopoly.

Poured through dusty swatchbooks, got to the historic roots of seersucker. Colorful stuff. What you used to wear steaming up to Luxor with your daguerreotype camera, attending get-togethers of the Soerabaja Planters Association or coffee auctions in old New Orleans.

Here is one striking example, reincarnated into a men's shirt that has an uncommon cut, as well.

Vintage Seersucker Shirt (No. 1183). Pure cotton with a refreshing pucker. Band collar. Clean French front. Assiduously pattern-matched chest pocket. Imported.
