Fabric Info

Fabric Description

Authentic Indian madras reinterpreted for the modern wardrobe.

Prized for its breathability, lightness, and distinctive look, madras is an absolute warm-weather staple. Ours is woven in Chennai, 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 punchy combination of blue, bright green, sunny yellow, red, and white makes for a unique yet timeless plaid style that works perfectly as either a long or short sleeve shirt.

Recommended Styling: Our Colorado Button Down collar with a Soft Front placket and Angled pocket is a classic look. Try our Soft English Spread and no placket for a slightly more modern spin.

    WE THINK OF MADRAS AS A SUMMER FABRIC BUT WITH LONG SLEEVES, IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE COUNTRY, IT IS ALMOST A YEAR ROUND SHIRT
