Love this jacket. Classic but updated length. What I love about Orvis is finding classic styles like this jacket. I know I will enjoy wearing this for many seasons. Purchased it on sale which was an added bonus.
3-Button Seersucker Jacket -

I absolutely love this jacket, which I purchased in the Blue. Seersucker is so wonderful in the hot summer months, especially if there is a need to dress more for an occasion. It enables you to dress appropriately without sweltering. This jacket is shaped nicely with the darts and is therefore not boxy. The length is top of hip for me. A very nice feature of this jacket is the cuff, which is a functioning 2-Button cuff. Also, would like to add that there is a small slit in the back. I found the fit to be perfect - Size 8. This would be a very good addition to anyone's wardrobe.
|Seersucker: easy-care style & comfort for warm weather|
Seersucker: An Exotic and Practical History
Distinctively wrinkled seersucker was first woven in India. The name of the fabric is a Hindi derivation of a Persian phrase, "shir shakkar," which translates as "milk and sugar," representing the alternating rough and smooth textures of the cloth’s signature stripes.
The alternating textures are produced by what is called slack-tension weaving, which alternates fibers held under normal tension with intervening slack fibers; the resulting fabric has a pattern of puckered and flat stripes permanently woven into the cloth.
Not only does seersucker never need ironing, the wrinkles also make seersucker one of summer’s coolest fabrics. Cotton breathes incredibly well, while the puckered weave allows cooling air circulation against the skin where it’s needed most.
