    Men's Seersucker Shorts Sale

    Seersucker shorts are a classic staple of the American man’s summer wardrobe. We grew up running (and sailing) around in seersucker and still wear it to this day. It’s breathable, cool, and perfect for warm weather.

    Although we love seersucker, we didn’t love the fit of most of the seersucker shorts available. Typically, they’re too baggy and boxy. Occasionally they’re way too short. We’ve spent the last few years perfecting the fit of our shorts are are proud to offer our Whaler Shorts: great fitting men’s shorts with attention to all the details.
