Earn your stripes

Meet The Seersuckers

The Seersuckers are smart, striped, lightweight, and breezy: perfect for warm to hot days.

Seersucker is a textured type of fabric, often with a subtle stripe. Because the warp yarns that run up and down are interwoven at different tensions, a wrinkled effect appears during the finishing process. This natural wrinkled effect creates pockets of space that enhance air circulation and breathability making the fabric perfect for MR MARVIS shorts. The Seersuckers are handmade in Portugal from 100% organic cotton.

We selected four stunning colours to pair a white stripe: light blue, dark bluelight grey and subtle pink. These classic combo’s look as sophisticated today, as ever.

Milk & Sugar

Seersucker was invented in India and was named shir-o-shekar: milk and sugar. If you look closely at the texture of the two stripes you’ll be able to spot one smooth – milk – and one rougher – sugar – pinstripe.

Breathability and lightweightness are key characteristics of the fabric, making them popular in warmer climates including the British colonies early 20th century. Starting as fabric for the working-class, it later was embraced by dapper misters, actually for the same key characteristics: air circulation and breathability. Most likely you can now understand why seersucker and MR MARVIS shorts are a match made in heaven.

Why, When, and How to Wear

The Seersuckers are very easy-to-wear. The fabric is non iron because of the pre-wrinkled effect, which makes them perfect for travelling on long flights and road trips.

This variation on MR MARVIS’ The Originals is a great lightweight option for those long hot days and warm summer nights. Wear them poolside, on the coast or in the city: when you’re walking in the overwhelming heat you will appreciate these slim-fit shorts even more. Pair them with a shirt of complimenting material, casual to smart sneakers and your favourite sunglasses for a careless yet sophisticated summer look.

“The Seersuckers are a marvellous addition to your summer wardrobe.” - MR MARVIS

    New: The Linens

    In 2022, we introduced two items made with linen: The Short Linens and The Linen Shirt. Today, we introduce The Linens, our newest, breeziest trousers yet - ideal for sunny days and warm nights.

    The Linens are made of a blend of 70% high-quality linen with 30% organic cotton. This makes them comfortable, soft and airy, but also marvellously good-looking. The breathable character of the linen fabric makes this your ideal pair of trousers to wear on sunny occasions or during a warm summer evening near the beach.

    Linen, a naturally grown fibre derived from the flax plant, is water-saving & more environmentally friendly in comparison to cotton. The Linen we use is European Flax certified, which means it is cultivated in Belgium without the use of artificial irrigation methods and genetically modified organisms.

    Just like their shorter cousins, The Short Linens, these linen trousers are designed with the ultimate summer experience in mind. Because whoever said that trousers are reserved for the colder seasons has surely never tried on a pair of The Linens. Whether you’re kicking back on a balcony somewhere in the sunny Mediterranean enjoying a perfect cup of coffee, lounging on a deck chair with your favourite novel, or catching up with friends downtown, these perfect summer trousers are guaranteed to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.

    Next to the elasticated waistband, The Linens come with adjustable drawstrings to guarantee the ultimate fit. On the back, you'll find two pockets with a classic buttoned closure and next to the right one our embroidered octagon logo. On the front side, you'll find all the details you might expect from us by now; the subtle MR MARVIS label and the hidden zip pocket for valuables in the right-hand pocket. The Linens come with a button closure and zip fly for ultimate convenience.
