At first, seersucker will probably conjure up images of sweet tea, sweaty southerners, and buttoned up gentlemen. But the traditional striped seersucker button down shirt this is not. Pure Blue Japan‘s Indigo Seersucker Check Shirt is primed for the both the trad folk and the denimhead braving the swelter.
Using two different indigo dyed yarns, PBJ makes the lightweight seersucker into a gingham pattern. As preppy as that might sound, they’ve not foregone the workwear details entirely. You’ll find two work pockets, one flapped, one with a pen slot, so you can go ahead and draft up a mean blueprint before smashing down some walls for that renovation. And, if you look to your side, you’ll find the side seams are reinforced with gussets as well as some chainstitch runoff.
Before it gets too hot too late, you can grab one for 16,000 JPY (~$143 USD) at Pure Blue Japan.
