Nothing says warm weather like a madras shirt. We collaborated with Original Madras Trading Company, a third-generation family business that’s been handweaving since the 1970s, to create a capsule of exclusive fabrics woven just for us on traditional hand looms in — where else? — Madras, India. In fact, the cloth for a single shirt takes 4–6 hours of handwork from a single weaver. (Just to put that in perspective, a machine loom could knock it out in under 10 minutes.) Slow and steady and wonderfully special. It's got a soft, nonfused button-down collar with just the right amount of “bloom” and an extra button at the back of the collar, which is an old-school detail originally designed to keep your tie in place... but we just like the way it looks. As always, the cut is slim but never skinny, with a high armhole for mobility and a long-enough-to-stay-tucked-in shirttail.

We don't do a lot of collaborations, but this one is special. Original Madras Trading Company is a third-generation family business that’s been handweaving since the 1970s on traditional hand looms in — where else? — Madras, India. That's the birthplace of traditional Madras cloth (pronounced mud-ROSS,) defined as a plainweave fabric made from 100% Indian cotton and woven by hand with a minimum of two colors... but usually more. We love it for its breeziness and its light weight, but most of all for the unique, not-totally-perfect character of the hand weave. The irregularity is exactly what makes it so cool. While it takes a single weaver 4–6 hours to do what a machine loom could knock out in under 10 minutes... we think the end result is worth it. Slow and steady and wonderfully special.
