    The Best Seersucker Shorts?

    seersuckershorts_webOur seersucker shorts are consistently among our most popular items and we believe we make the best seersucker shorts around. This is testament both to the timeless, classic style of seersucker as a summer style, as well as the quality of our product. 

    We take everything into account when making our shorts, starting with 100% cotton seersucker fabric.

    -John Masefield, "Sea Fever"

    John Edward Masefield led a rich and interesting life - journeying from his native England to the United States at the turn of the century to work in a New York carpet factory before the ocean called him back home again. Continue reading
