Madras, named after the Indian city where it originated, was originally designed to interpret the Scottish regiment tartans.

Traditionally made, exceptionally comfortable cloth for the heat, made in one of the hottest spots on the earth. Colors and patterns in these shirts, however, are not the usual ones.
They’re bolder. Sharper.
