So the news is in on the provenance of Chris Taylor’s shirt and unfortunately it’ll be hard to get the exact same one. With the nonchalance of someone who doesn’t have a 9 to 5 job (jealous, moi?) the Grizzly Bear clarinettist simply replied:
It’s just a thrift store shirt I found somewhere on tour
Which means that if you want to emulate the look you’ll have to scour the vintage shops or simply take your pick from the three shirts I’ve dug out for you. Product details after the jump.

When Paul, one of our commenters asked where he could find a madras shirt similar to the one Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear is sporting in my short shorts post I went on a madras mission. I’m waiting to hear from Gizzly Bear’s publicist about the actual shirt (which will probably end up coming from a thrift store) but in the meantime here are my top five shirts to give you your madras fix. Land’s End seem to know their madras and their shirt is pretty cool but the jonquil colourway (behind the shirt) beats the moss green hands down. See after the jump for the rest of the picks.
We were talking about Grizzly Bear at Shiny Towers today and when I had a look at their website I was struck by how well they wear short shorts. Short shorts made a small
ripple last year and are firmly embedded in the high street’s spring
summer collections but despite departed writer Tim’s wise advice I still think some people will shy away from
wearing them. I like the insouciance of singer Edward Droste’s outfit, and get the feeling that a shirt is the only way to work this look.
Take a look after the jump to see Chris Taylor who plays clarinet in the band looking cool in some short shorts. I particularly like the way he’s teamed them with a colourful madras shirt in quite feminine colours but still manages to look smart.
