Portuguese Navy Seersucker Fabric


Estimated Restock: Spring 2025


Fabric Description

There’s nothing like a fine seersucker fabric to get you through the warmer months in style. We specially developed these solid seersuckers as a cooler, more unique take on the traditional preppy striped seersucker shirts we're used to seeing. Widely worn in the hot, muggy South, seersucker’s special uneven puckering qualities gives it less surface area contact against the skin, increasing airflow under the shirt and allowing heat to dissipate more quickly. To us, it's a breathable textured solid ideal for spring and summer. Our seersuckers are woven in Portugal with a smooth 60/1 x 60/1 construction. We love a Soft President Spread or Soft Ivy BD collar on these and don't be shy to give it short sleeves and make it your new beach shirt. Due to the special nature of seersucker fabrics, they can only be made using soft, unfused collars and cuffs.

  • Nice color and lightweight airy feel.

  • This fabric shrinks a LOT. Despite having it made in a more generous cut than I usually use, I had to have it remade in an even more generous one because it shrank so much after a single wash that I could barely get it to button.

  • Great lightweight fabric

    2 days ago  ·  Mitch in Washington, DC

  • Very comfortable and fits well

  • Way too stiff and wrinkle prone for me. Would work well as a short sleeve shirt but long sleeves resulted in a boxy fit. Fabric made a lot of noise during movement as well.

    6 days ago  ·  Donald in Greenleaf, WI

  • Great color. Nice change from the typical two-color seersucker.

  • very soft and comfortable

  • Seersucker is the perfect summer fabric. Short sleeve button down will get lots of use for the warmer months.

  • love the color -- fabric is a new addition for me -- feels like it will be great for hot summer days.

  • A++++

  • The Portuguese Navy Seersucker is an excellent fabric. Allows nice airflow and has a fun, consistent texture to it. The color leans more purple. I like it. Would buy again.

  • I like this fabric so much, I am going to get more seersucker for summer.

  • Just as you would expect - a nice seersucker fabric from Proper Cloth. Holds its shape nicely but not overly stiff

    last month  ·  Derek in INDIANAPOLIS, IN

  • As mentioned for my other Proper Cloth Seersucker shirts this shirt is comfortable during warm/hot temperatures.

    last month  ·  Tim in DOTHAN, AL

  • There is nothing really bad about the fabric, just not special. I have a hard time thinking of when I would wear it. It is too casual for dress up, but too stiff for casual wear. Perhaps it would soften over several washes.

    last month  ·  Ron in SAINT LOUIS, MO

  • Stiffer than I'm used to, requires breaking in.

    last month  ·  Jeremy in Chevy Chase, MD

  • Great fit and material. Will try other styles for summer

    last month  ·  Robert in Dallas, GA

  • Light summery fabric as expected, nice pattern. Good smart casual shirt.

    last month  ·  BE in Hassocks, West Sussex

  • This is a great seersucker fabric. I had this made as a short sleeve shirt and it will be in heavy rotation this summer. The fabric is light weight but very opaque and wears very cool. Great for hot and humid days.

    last month  ·  Samuel in AUSTIN, TX

  • A great summer fabric, but be aware that the drape is very different from linen or oxford cloth button down shirts. The shirt looks great standing up and sitting down, but I noticed more pulling around the waist and midsection area when sitting compared to my linen and oxford shirts. I would make sure you order a larger size if you're buying seersucker to prevent bunching when sitting.

    last month  ·  Daniel in Brooklyn, NY

  • Great for summer

    last month  ·  John in CHICAGO, IL

    April 2024  ·  Joe in Hinsdale, IL

  • Wonderful spring fabric!

    April 2024  ·  Jim in Fayetteville, AR

  • This is a high quality shirt. The material is maybe slightly heavier than I was anticipating which was pleasing. I was concerned it would be flimsy, and it was not.

    April 2024  ·  Michael in Hinsdale, IL

  • A smart summer fabric; cool and soft yet with sufficient weight to drape well.

    April 2024  ·  Kevin in New York, NY

  • Perfect weight and feels great.

    April 2024  ·  Jesse in Decatur, GA

  • Love this fabric. The seersucker texture leaves a lot of air between the fabric and your skin so it's very breathable. It's great for a business casual setting.

    March 2024  ·  James in Erie, CO

  • Very soft, almost airy. Perfect for warmer days

    March 2024  ·  Simone in Arlington, VA

  • Subtle, nice look.

    December 2023  ·  Dale in Los Angeles, CA

  • Somewhat stiff and feels a bit generic.

    November 2023  ·  Adam in Ann Arbor, MI

  • One of my favorite shirts

    November 2023  ·  Joseph in Frisco, TX

  • Very light without feeling breezy, this shirt is substancial feeling but light .... great with white slacks or jeans. Casual or business casual.

    November 2023  ·  Paul in NORTH CANTON, OH

  • Clean and professional

    October 2023  ·  Lucas in WASHINGTON, DC

  • Nice and cool for the summer months.

    September 2023  ·  Randy in Toronto, ONTARIO

  • Great shirt, though it runs a bit tighter than the normal PC shirt. I would size up a half inch in the chest, waist, and sleeves.

    September 2023  ·  Adrian in FRESNO, CA

  • This is shirts 2 of 5 in the same fabric that I bought. Fantastic.

    August 2023  ·  Trevor in Manhattan Beach, CA

  • Perfect blue summer shirt

    July 2023  ·  Nickalus in Powder Springs, GA

  • This fabric shrunk like crazy after I washed in cold water and hung dry. To the point where I can’t wear it anymore. It also feels rough and lower quality than what I am used to from Proper Cloth. Very disappointed.

    July 2023  ·  James in SEATTLE, WA

  • Nice fabric, cool for summer

    July 2023  ·  Alvin in ATLANTA, GA

  • I love seersucker, and I thought the navy would make the shirt easy for day-to-night wear. Seeing it in person though, something about the blue felt more indigo dingy than rich navy. Remade with a chambray for light option during this hot summer.

    July 2023  ·  JOHN in Carson, CA

  • Nice, light seersucker fabric. Can be easily dressed up or down.
