Who doesn't love seersucker? I love the simplicity of the seersucker fabric which is casual, relaxed and emanates the “feel-good” vibe among those who wear it. I decided to look into the history of seersucker.
According to Wikipedia the fabric was originally worn by the poor in the U.S. until preppy undergraduate students began wearing it in the 1920s in an air of reverse snobbery. I find that interesting since today, seersucker is produced by a limited number of manufacturers and is a low-profit, high-cost item because of its slow weaving speed.
Did you know that Beginning in 1996, the US Senate held a Seersucker Thursday in June, where the participants dress in traditionally Southern clothing, but the tradition was discontinued in June 2012. Well the news is that it is back! According to ABC News, after a two year hiatus, the tradition of Seersucker Thursday returned to the Senate in July with lawmakers donning their finest seersucker suits.
So, we here at White House Monogramming think we should participate in Seersucker Thursdays! So until 12:00 tonight, August 7th our monogrammed seersucker backpacks will be 20% off using the coupon code SEERSUCKER. In addition to that, we will have a drawing for a FREE backpack.
