inferior quality -
By: wbg1 from Charlottesville, Va
I exchanged the first shirt purchased and then simply returned the second. Each ripped along a seam - the first along the top of the collar and second at the shirt pocket - after a first washing and before wearing. The material is perfect for summer and I was disappointed not to be able to keep the shirts. This is not the quality i expect of Orvis products.
Perfect vacation purchase -
I needed a new summer short sleeve. The idea of the pure cotton seersucker appealed to me. I've worn it in Texas and in Edinburgh and in London. I would say I got my money's worth on these vacation wears.

Nice shirt, well made. Fit is a little tighter than expected. Orvis label inside back is scratchy and uncomfortable, so I removed it.
Great summer shirt -

Very nice feel to fabric. Great for summer because it is cool and always looks fresh. Since I had a $25.00 off coupon, the price was more in line with what I would spend on a casual shirt.
Very high quality, extremely comfortable -
As fine a seersucker shirt as I've found available on the current market. Very light so as to remain comfortable throughout the summer, even in the South.

An exotic and practical history
Distinctively wrinkled seersucker was first woven in India. The name of the fabric is a Hindi derivation of a Persian phrase, "shir shakkar," which translates as "milk and sugar," representing the alternating rough and smooth textures of the cloth’s signature stripes.
The alternating textures are produced by what is called slack-tension weaving, which alternates fibers held under normal tension with intervening slack fibers; the resulting fabric has a pattern of puckered and flat stripes permanently woven into the cloth.
Not only does seersucker never need ironing, the wrinkles also make seersucker one of summer’s coolest fabrics. Cotton breathes incredibly well, while the puckered weave allows cooling air circulation against the skin where it’s needed most.
Great for Warm Weather Travel
This means that Orvis seersucker clothing is an easy-care, cool and comfortable choice for warm weather. It's also a great choice for your summer travel clothing—you'll always look great and feel comfortable during your travels with no ironing needed!
