Given my love all things Southern, I was just ecstatic to learn about Sucker denim.  A product of Charleston, one quintesential Southern city, these fashion forward “new South” jeans marry the timelessness of seersucker with the edginess denim.

I got right on the phone, called 1-To-My-Sucker (no joke) and ordered the Savannah (couldn’t be more aptly named) boot cut jeans in Blue Night.  Much to my delight, they arrived on my doorstep this morning. I promptly took them to my seamstress to be hemmed and cannot wait to pick them up next week!

And if I haven’t convinced you to run out and purchase the soon-to-be staple for all dapper Southerners, Southern Living named them The South’s Best Jeans in their January 2011 issue!

When I was talking to the nice “sucker” on the phone, he told me they will be debuting white seersucker jeans for the spring. Sign. Me. Up.
