Sippin' in Seersucker

I absolutely love to don my seersucker suit. It is one of the most comfortable suits that I own.

I also love to mix it up while wearing the jacket and a bright color pant - green, royal blue, orange. I also like to wear the pants with a navy blazer. I also love a themed pocket square. Seersucker is very versatile from Easter to Labor Day.

I recently read this from WGNO, a local news ABC affiliate:
(WGNO) - It all started when Joseph Haspel, Sr. recognized the "power of the pucker."
His goal was to create clothes that could withstand the heat in New Orleans, and after founding the brand back in 1909, Haspel's seersucker became a hit in the fashion world.
"It was never pretentious, but it was always sophisticated and he was really proud of that fact," said Laurie Haspel Aronson, Haspel’s president and CEO.
Laurie is Joseph Haspel's great-granddaughter.
She said the seersucker was initially a laborer's outfit that transformed into a hot-weather-ready suit.
One time, Aronson said, Joseph Sr. actually dove into the ocean to prove his seersucker would be cocktail ready that evening. Apparently, it worked.
Former presidents Harry Truman and George W. Bush even rocked Haspel's seersucker.
And while the Haspel collection focuses on men's fashion, creating a line for women is something Laurie is looking forward to.
She recently collaborated with a New Orleans-based company, and she says it’s just the beginning.

I do love to sip in seersucker.

Sippin' in Seersucker, y'all!


  1. Love your seersucker, Ron! My Dad always used to wear a blue seersucker suit in summer - good memory of a good man. ♥

  2. Good morning, Ron! I love a man in a seersucker suit--it is so Southern. You sure look dapper in yours! Have a great day! xoxo

  3. Yes, such a great southern look! You are definitely rocking the seersucker, Ron! Enjoy your weekend!

  4. My Daddy always wore seersucker suits in the summer, so this was a nice flashback to a man who would now be 108! I have been trying to make my husband get one for the longest time, but he is being stubborn. We will be in New Orleans pretty soon (planning to some see the Trad Home showhouse), and I am going to take him shopping. Could you tell me where you buy yours?


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
