  • Half-Canvassed Suits & Sportcoats Sale

    I've been aware of Haspel for a while due to their status as the original creators of the seersucker suit, but recently they've been running a sale that's caught my eye. Many of their half-canvassed quarter-lined seersucker suits are on sale for ~$190 at the moment, as well as a bunch of sportcoats. Now here's my quandary: I have yet to own a navy blazer, and they have a navy hopsack for sale that's in my price range....but they also have a grey seersucker suit within my price range, and not only is it a seersucker suit, but it's from Haspel & it's half-canvassed, slim fit, and quarter lined. I do own a navy cotton blazer that could serve as a navy sportcoat, and a navy suit for all of my current formal needs. Pulling the trigger is a tough call, any wise words from you menswear gurus? My style typically leans trad & southern so the suit would fit right in, but the fact that it's final sale is also killin' me....

    I really like seersucker but it’s hard to envision not getting more use out of a navy blazer. I’d buy the blazer first.

      I probably wear my seersucker suit about 1-4 times a year. But a blazer? Couldn't count. Then again, I'm way up North. Also, I'm personally not a fan of the beige/gray seersucker.

      Quick question though...How do you know they are half canvassed? I don't see any mention of that on the page or where I poked around. Pretty cheap for half canvas if that is the case.

        Look under “fabric” tab; one of the bullets says “Half canvas construction.”

        [MENTION=14958]Pelennor[/MENTION]: if you know your measurements, you could alleviate your final purchase angst by calling Haspel. I would round up, personally, for a seersucker jacket/suit...no desire to be formfitting in hot weather wear.

          Also worth noting is that most of the web comments are from a few years ago, when the name was basically just a shell for a larger corporation. In 2014 the family of the founder bought the firm back and has been producing everything in the US rather than outsourcing.

            Thinking about pulling the trigger on a brown hopsack blazer, it's something I've been looking for. Going to go with my Suit Supply size which usually only needs to be brought in slightly and cross my fingers.
