Madras Button Down Shirt

Item#
M104
$135.00
Our authentic Indian Madras shirt in navy, claret, gold and green. Madras is a lightweight cotton fabric, completely handwoven, using yarns dyed with vegetable colorings. The fabric takes its name from the former name of the city of Chennai in south India. Authentic Madras still comes from Chennai (Madras) where we had this woven for us. You may remember this from your college days, but it is just as enjoyable and comfortable today as it was then. We have constructed these shirts in our classic signature collar button down shirt, with all the bells and whistles of our dress shirts, including mother-of-pearl buttons, and a long sleeve, easy to roll up at leisure. Because authentic madras may “bleed” on first washing, though it will not fade, we recommend you wash it separately first. The color will remain fast after the first washing. Sizes S–XXL.

About Our Shirtings

Our fine shirts are constructed, as all our shirts are, to assure the softness and silky hand of the fabric, and for comfort and durability. Pure cotton shirts are high thread count 2-ply Swiss cotton; the cotton and linen shirts offer the comfort and durability of cotton, with the lightness of linen. Our shirts are cut in our Canadian artisan workrooms in sizes 15 x 2 through 18 x 7, in a gentleman’s fit, with a roomy sleeve and body. (Our trim silhouette is also available upon request. In addition, we are able to offer made-to-measure specifications on any fabric in our collection.) We uniquely include a 15 ¾" collar to meet the hard-to-satisfy needs of so many gentlemen. Each shirt has mother-of-pearl buttons, (or, on some sport shirts, horn buttons). Each shirt is single needle stitched, with side gussets for added strength; collars have removable stays; we add gauntlet buttons for replacement needs, and double buttons at the cuff for added comfort; and we add an extra ¼" width to the left sleeve cuff to assure room for a wristwatch; we add an extra allowance in manufacturing for shrinkage after a first washing to both our collars and sleeve length; our collars all have proper tie space; and we are proud to produce a button down collar with a perfect roll.
