Sneaker Politics x Instapump Fury – ‘Seersucker Thursday’
It’s rare for Sneakers and Politics to mix, and quite literal to their store name, Sneaker Politics is dropping these curious Pump Fury OG’s in a few days time.
Inspired by ‘Seersucker Thursday’ – an annual event where Southern-state US senators attend (Northern-state based) Congress wearing Seersucker suits and apparel in order to bring a little ‘Southern flavor’ to Washington, these Furys offer a refreshing twist just in time for a US Summer.
I wasn’t aware of Seersucker, so here’s some enlightenment via Wikipedia:
Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric, commonly striped or chequered, used to make clothing for spring and summer wear. Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled appearance in places. This … causes the fabric to be mostly held away from the skin when worn, facilitating heat dissipation and air circulation.
…The material was considered a mainstay of the summer wardrobe of gentlemen, especially in the South (US), who favored the light fabric in the high heat and humidity of the summer, prior to the arrival of air conditioning.
