Seersucker is a classic staple that has its origins rooted in the days of the British Colonial period. When British Officers were placed in warm weather colonies, seersucker would be issued so they were able to stay cool and dry. The bunched threads cause the fabric to keep away from the skin allowing faster heat dissipation. At Southern Marsh, we didn't want to make just another pair of shorts, we wanted to make your favorite pair of shorts. The Seersucker Regatta Short from Southern Marsh fits the bill. Our designers have spent countless hours looking at every aspect of their composition. We gave the shorts a classic cut with a flat front, and added our French blue oxford waistband. The seams and belt loops are double stitched to hold together for years to come. We think that you will be as excited with your purchase as we are to offer them.
