Story

Madras — named for the town it originated in, which is now known as Chennai — is a classic Indian fabric treasured the world over for its distinctively colored plaids. Our patterns are custom designed for Best Made and provide a perfect dose of subdued color for the warmer months. Exceptionally lightweight and breathable, these shirts only grow softer with every wash — and with our signature cuff-to-elbow patches, they’re durable, too. Made from 100% cotton and featuring indigo-dyed navy, they’ll wear and fade beautifully over time without bleeding as intensely as traditional vegetable-dyed Madras.
