Cool Find: Men's Classic Fit Seersucker Shirt
Oh, it's just a shirt. Or is it? Here's a little known fact: seersucker is a cotton fabric that's literally cooler than your usual cotton. The puckered material's threads are woven in a way that give it small, repeating tight micro clusters resulting in a crinkled look. Big deal, right? Here's the point. The crinkling makes this a material that naturally and slightly pulls away from your body just a bit, leaving some space for a touch of air flow and heat dispersal. It's a good fabric for summer shirts because you're cooler in a seersucker shirt than in a common cotton t-shirt.
That's probably more than you cared to know. Still, the crinkled appearance means this is a low-maintenance button-up you won't need to iron on a routine basis. It's meant to look that way. The classic collared style says you're a ruggedly classy dude, and the seersucker fabric says you know how to be comfortable and look good at the same time. This just might be a shirt you'll want to pack on your summer road trips. I grabbed three of 'em just in case.
Trifecta in summary: packable, comfortable, affordable.
