    I've read in a few magazines that Europeans aren't very fond on seersucker. Is that true?

    For us Americans (some of us) spring is the beginning bell for seersucker. Does anyone have pics of blue seersucker suit with shirt and tie combination?

    I need some serious help!!!

    I don't think it's ever seersucker time.

    I have have never seen seersucker in a cut that wasn't very boxy and unflattering. Also, in my lifestyle, I am just not sure when I would wear a light cotton suit like that.

    IMO seersucker suits can look great on someone 50+ and trim, I've never seen it done well otherwise.

    Seersucker is an amazing, comfortable material. There are numerous color options and ways to wear it. There is something for any age and any style.

    I have been thinking about this recently myself. I have a seersucker suit with red and white stripes, very unique. I originally only wore just the jacket, and have had huge success with it and people love it. However, this year I might introduce the trousers with the jacket.

    Funny, I live in the (sub)tropics, and I have never seen seersucker here.

    Just sayin'.

    The full-blown stripity seersucker suit may be too much for some, but that's no reason to avoid the fabric. I'm quite fond of seersucker shirts, odd-jackets and trousers and believe they transcend the stereotypical Southern dandy look.

    Though I don't mean to recall the late unpleasantness (and anyway, my folks were in Austria-Hungary and Lithuania at the time), I prefer gray to blue:

    Easter is the "beginning bell," not spring. Also, for many Americans, particularly those northerners who wish to don our Southern boys' style, it's not seersucker time until Memorial Day.
