BREAK OUT THE SEERSUCKER: In this June 2007 photo, Sen. Trent Lott (c.) shows off his pink socks as fellow senators participate in 'Seersucker Thursday' on Capitol Hill in Washington. The word came from Hindi and Persian origins, 'shir o shakar,' meaning milk and sugar, and Muslim traders used to trade the fabric. In the southern US, it is a generally acceptable to wear seerksucker from Easter to Labor Day, where as in the North, Memorial Day marks the first time many traditionally wear the fabric in the season.
