My friend is getting married and wants a seersucker suit for the May wedding.

I think he'll go to Chan or MyTailor, can anyone recommend good fabric options for seersucker?

That's an odd question
. Seersucker is all cotton. Or do you mean (where to get/who make) good seersucker fabric?

I will send my friend to Chan/My Tailor, which books should he look at does Holland & Sherry or Dormeuil or Loro Piana make a good seersucker fabric. Which would you recommend?

Also, I have seen wool/cotton blends on seersucker.

Where to source seersucker fabric? At the moment I'm interested in 100% cotton, classic white and blue stripe.

I have customers asking me about all kinds of seersucker, cheap to expensive, so I'd like to hear about them all.

@smittycl brought my attention to Loro Piana Silk Air, which is a "wool/silk blend made to look like cotton Seersucker", and a little pricey.

Supplied my own fabric this time. Next up is likely an indigo blue Seersucker suit with Loro Piana Silk Air fabric. Need to order KW pants and get the fit right on those first.

Steven Hitchcock brought my attention to that fabric: very nice seersucker - its the only fabric I'd make a seersucker out of.
