Traditionally worn in the South, seersucker has transcended its preppy, warm-weather origins to crop up in fashionable men’s clothing (worn over swimwear), shoes and accessories. The Americana puckered-cotton fabric is incorporated into shorts from Massimo Dutti, shoes from Brooks Brothers and handkerchiefs from Fine and Dandy.
