    I was just thinking that seersucker suits have become to uncommon to be worn. My friend wore one to a garden party and everyone called him an ice cream man. Unfortunately, much like ascots, the seersucker suit has fallen too far out of favor to be worn, unless you are at a specific fashion event.
    I know that some will disagree, I just don't want people to be fun of. It happened to me when I worn an ascot to a dinner party and I have never worn one since.

    I'd say another nice hay to wear with seersucker is a Milan straw hat. It has a lot more texture than a panama. Some hat makers can also dye the straw. The only thing is is that I've only found one hat shop in the US (outside of Amish country) that makes them out of the traditional wheat straw. The shop is VS custom hats. I've been to the shop and it is just amazing being able to see everything.

    I think seersucker has connections with the Kentucky Derby. If so, that would be interesting.
    thanks for making this helpful video

    I've always been curious about seersucker suits, but the big issue is that they're not very readily available in Australia unfortunately. I find this quite peculiar because most cities in Australia get quite hot in the summer so seersucker would be quite practical. I might have to look a little harder so I can get myself a seersucker suit by the time our summer comes around. Thanks for the great information.

    I wasn't sure how to ask you this, but in the How to Wear Men’s Waistcoats & Odd Vests guide you have 4 pictures of you wearing the same jacket, and I was wondering where you got it from?

    Just a comment in hopes of learning: I was thinking that your deep red-ish tie was a bit too dark to be combined with an iconic summer blazer. Not a criticism, but a curious comment. Can I have a few words on it, Raphael? Wouldn't a lighter color be much more pleasing summer choice?

    love all of your videos, and this one in particular…since I am retired & no longer wear suits, have had many and I mean many seersucker shirts in all colors & designs made…my favorite shirt is a popover with half zip, rolled collar & 2 chest packets with buttons…have them embroidered with some sort of crests & my initials in various designs & configurations…they wash beautifully & are perfect for the New York summer hot & humid weather…my nick name is "Mr. Seersucker"….
