Aiming to relieve Southern gentlemen of heavy wool suits in summertime, a New Orleans merchant came up with the first seersucker suit. That was over a century ago, and we still applaud his genius. Today this lightweight, breathable fabric remains ideal for traditional Southern tailored suits—and for Kimpton hotel bath robes. Featured in The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel and Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel, our Navy & White Seersucker Robe by Frette wraps you in a soft microfiber terry interior topped with a microfiber seersucker shell. Wear it while lounging on your garden patio or reading your favorite Southern novel.
