Yesterday was National Seersucker Day, which began on Capitol Hill as “Seersucker Thursday.” It went on in DC as usual, with Senator Dianne Feinstein grabbing the spotlight. There aren’t any noteworthy photos of Congressmen worth running.
So instead we’ll jump in our sartorial time machine and journey back to May of 1961, when Esquire called seersucker a club-and-campus favorite.
Here’s another shot from the same photo spread, starring the amusing Gig Young and the alluring Elizabeth Montgomery:
Yesterday I sported my seersucker jacket for the first time this season, pairing it with black-and-blue knit tie and blue pinpoint buttondown. Brought me almost as much pleasure as the fall’s first wearing of tweed.
