stylish with effective cooling -
By: RiverWright from Adirondacks in NY
Modern fabrics may be somewhat more effective in high humidity but this shirt keeps me dry and cool as long as moisture can evaporate. Best for those sunny, breezy days when good looks count. A winner for casual Friday at work, too. I expect to get many good years of use.

If your like me and enjoy rough textured seersucker, this shirt is for you. Fit is good and no ironing required.

Very nice shirt, have worn it with a jacket at a casual event. Have worn it strolling the beach and under the cabanas. 5 Stars for me.

Unusual color and nice hefty weight. I highly recommend this shirt as a change of pace from the typical red or blue seersucker.
A shirt for warm weather travel -

We will be in Spain this spring. This short sleeved seersucker shirt seemed liked the perfect tourist shirt. It is a beautiful shirt. It is well made and true to its seersucker nature is cool while being substantial. I also noticed that it does not wrinkle much at all. I'm very pleased.

The true test will be months away. A few washings and I'll know what I really think of the shirt. At least you sell a seersucker short-sleeved shirt. They seem to be hard-to-find.

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!
