Don’t worry about shrinkage — we’ll account for that automatically based on fabric choice. You can fine-tune your collar size down to 0.1” or adjust any of the 16 other customizable size parameters when you create a custom size.
Sleeve length is measured from the center back to the edge of the shoulder and down to the end of the cuff. Fine-tune your sleeve length down to 0.1” or adjust any of the 16 other customizable size parameters when you create a custom size.
Slim Fit will be nicely fitted, yet comfortable. Super Slim Fit is for those that prefer a particularly trim fit and are not bothered by slight tightness or limited range of motion. Classic Fit is a more generous, roomy fit that won’t hug the body closely.

Prized for its breathability, lightness, and distinctive look, madras is an absolute warm-weather staple. Ours is woven in India with a 40s single-ply plain weave construction that makes for an incredibly soft and airy feel.
Madras fabrics were originally dyed with bright, colorful vegetable dyes that, when laundered, would "bleed," resulting in shirts with more subdued tones and a faded appearance. This bleeding inadvertently created the traditional madras look we’re familiar with today. Our madras shirts are designed to have just the right amount of fade right off the bat so they won't bleed when you wash them at home. This muted ecru beige and salmony orange plaid makes for a unique yet timeless style that works perfectly as either a long or short sleeve shirt.
Recommended Styling: Go with soft details. Our Colorado Button Down collar with a Soft Front placket and Angled pocket is a classic look, but if you want to update the traditional try our Soft Franklin Spread and no placket.

“Interesting question about value – I’m starting to see the fabrics as a big part of the value proposition with Proper Cloth because of this fabric. I especially noticed that the wrinkle resistance is high, even wearing it under a sweater or sweatshirt. I tend to like shirting that is distinctive but not flashy an…d have enough body to retain its shape without being stiff. I like this fabric for those reasons. I also that the salmon color is so even throughout the shirt because the threads are so consistent.”

“Just what you want from madras, light without being flimsy.”

“Your Madras is AWESOME! In addition to being light as a feather I think it will hold up well after multiple wash/wear cycles. The patter is very unique, and my lady friend always compliments me when I wear it!”
