It’s on sale: Haspel seersucker suit — I’m fairly certain this is similar to the seersucker suit I own, although the stripe width on mine is much smaller and this one seems to be the typical width. Regardless, today’s Sierra Trading Post deal flyer brings the cost of this suit to under $100. (The only way to activate that coupon is through the email they sent out. If you want me to forward it to you, email me.)
In regards to the fit, I found my Haspel suit to fit pretty true to size. The jacket didn’t really need to be adjusted, however, I did have the trousers slimmed and seat adjusted. Another nice thing about the selection at STP is that they have short, regular and long sizing.
The one downside to this suit is that it’s 3/4ths lined. The upside though is that it’s half-canvased. You might be able to have a tailor remove some of the lining if you find it’s making you run a bit hot, but I’m not entirely sure.
As you’re probably aware, wearing a seersucker suit is probably a bit ambitious as a whole, but I’ve found it works well when you wear the items separate from each other. The jacket goes well with jeans, navy and grey trousers and go-to-hell chinos. The trousers work with almost any blue or navy jacket. Get a pair of bucks (dirty or crisp white) and you’re set to go.
