Milk & Sugar: The Complete Book of Seersucker

Bill Haltom’s definitive guide to the quintessential Southern fabric covers all things seersucker. From the origins and history of the seersucker suit to the many different ways, places, and reasons people wear it, Milk & Sugar has it all. Haltom dives into traditional ways to wear the puckered fabric as well as the unconventional styles of today. Along the way, he also chronicles the celebrities, politicians, and average people who champion seersucker fashions. There’s something for everyone — longtime fans as well as newbies will enjoy Haltom’s anecdotes and history lessons, and that doesn’t exclude the ladies (an entire chapter is devoted to ladies who’ve made seersucker their own).

Pre-orders will be shipped one week prior to official release (March 26)

CLINTON vs. TRUMP: GETTING READY FOR A NOT-SO-GREAT DEBATE

The Democrat was my father.  The Republican was my mother.  My father never voted for a Republican in his entire life.  My mother never voted for a Democrat.  Every election day, they would cancel out each other’s vote.

The Other Fellow May Be Right: The Civility of Howard Baker

A tribute to the late Senator Howard Baker, a great leader whose civility brought adversaries together to find solutions to our nation's problems.
