  • What Sets Our Seersucker Shorts Apart?

    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. Many seersucker fabrics are a cotton/poly blend, which makes them less breathable - one of seersucker's best qualities. No matter the color or print, we always make sure to use 100% cotton seersucker in our shorts.

  • Gentlemen, meet your favorite new shorts

    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.

  • What to Wear with Seersucker this Summer

    Seersucker This Summer
    Seersucker Summer ChoicesOne of the best things about summer is the wardrobe. Nantucket Island is never more beautiful and relaxing than when we’re underneath the summer sun, being rocked by the tides or the salty ocean breeze. Seersucker fabric is a lightweight summertime favorite among the nautical at heart, thanks to a unique weaving process that creates its signature “crinkled” look and airy feel. The fabric is designed to touch the skin as little as possible, leaving plenty of air to circulate and warding off heat and moisture. Continue reading

  • All About Seersucker Clothing

    Striped Seersucker Dress - Women's Seersucker ClothingOur seersucker clothing styles are among our most popular items. Although many are familiar with this classic fabric, we want to tell a little more about the fabric, it's history and how we use it as part of our 'Get to Know Us' series. Similarly, we previously posted about another one of most popular fabric: All About Madras Clothing.

    Seersucker is a style of lightweight cotton fabric with a trademark 'puckered; texture. Much like our other popular fabric, Patchwork Madras, seersucker originally comes to us from India, where the fabric derived its name from the Hindi and Urdu words “kheer aur shakkar”, meaning “milk and sugar”. This is a reference to the way the fabric bunches up – the smooth and bumpy textures of the fabric are reminiscent of the texture of milk and sugar. Another similarity between seersucker and Madras fabric is that both fabrics originated in hot climates and were intended to be cool and lightweight. The trademark bunching of seersucker fabric causes it to allow more room for the skin to breath, which facilitates air circulation and the dissipation of heat.

    When the fabric was initially introduced in the United States, it was worn almost exclusively by the poor until preppy students in the 1920’s popularized it as a mode of 'reverse snobbery.' It was especially popular in the southern United States as suits made from the fabric were still breathable enough to wear in the hot and humid weather. Seersucker fabric was so popular in fact, that the US Senate used to have Seersucker Thursdays in June, where senators would arrive in traditionally Southern style seersucker suits. The tradition was unfortunately discontinued in 2012.

    Our Seersucker Clothing

    Men's Striped Seersucker Shorts & Seersucker Clothing

    At Nantucket Brand, we take great pride in offering you only the finest from around the world. We work with 100% cotton seersucker rather than a cotton/poly blend. While the classic blue and white striped fabric is still the most popular, we work to find other color and patterns that we think you'll love. Those include other striped color like green and pink, as well as multi-colored check patterns, and even gingham check patterns. After carefully choosing our colors, we make sure test the fabric by washing it multiple times to check the shrinkage and make sure it feels just as soft, or softer, than it did pre-wash. Once we're satisfied with the fabric, we send it straight to our factory, now located in the US, for production.

    Our authentic seersucker clothing is available in a variety of styles for men and women. We have several options of men's seersucker shirts, perfect for a casual get together or dressed up with a blazer for a more formal setting. We also offer seersucker shorts for men and women, the perfect way to ensure you never lose your cool in the hot months. Ladies should also browse our selection of seersucker dresses and seersucker pants and capris, offering a casual and understated style without sacrificing comfort. Many of our seersucker items are now made in the USA, including our men's striped and check seersucker shorts and women's striped and gingham seersucker skirts.
