It is truly an affront to the great tradition that is seersucker that some wingnut in the Missouri Senate is trying to pass legislation against wearing seersucker.

A pox on the senator and all his issue forever...

Every time I see an adult male in seersucker, Lida Rose is stuck in my head the whole day. If that's not criminal, then what is? :)

This guy needs to do his job and concentrate on law-making, not fashion. Absolutely ridiculous!

Seersucker is to be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There is no excuse for there to be a "Seersucker Caucus" in the Missouri Legislature seeing as how they only convene between January and mid-May.

Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric, commonly striped or chequered, used to make clothing for spring and summer wear.The word came into English from Hindustani (Urdu and Hindi), which originates from the words "kheer aur shakkar", meaning "milk and sugar", probably from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth texture of milk and the bumpy texture of sugar.Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled appearance in places. This feature causes the fabric to be mostly held away from the skin when worn, facilitating heat dissipation and air circulation. It also means that pressing is not necessary.

Common items of clothing made from seersucker include suits, shorts, shirts, and robes. The most common colors for it are white and blue; however, it is produced in a wide variety of colors, usually alternating colored stripes and puckered white stripes slightly wider than pin stripes.
