Cape Madras have just released their “perfect summer attire” longsleeve shirt. I know those are two words you don’t usually see together, however Madras insists it is made from “the best warm weather fabric ever created.”
The fabric apparently has a great history behind it and gets its name from the “English name of the city of Chennai, India with their ‘Madrasi checks’.” The Cape Madras’ shirt has a button-down collar and shirttail hem. It’s made of 100% cotton patch madras and is offered in two colors: Trundy and Richmond LS.
