Don’t get mad, get Sugar Cane India Madras Plaid. These charming long sleeve button-downs are just what the weatherman ordered, now that the warmer seasons are on the horizon — Madras is a truly great option for when it’s warm (or when you need a light layer). If they’re suitable for the temperate climes of India, then they’re suitable for the muggy temps of the southern parts of the USA, or anywhere that gets super warm.
Sugar Cane does reproductions right, and these India Madras shirts are no exception. Inspired by Madras shirts from the 50s/60s, these are just the right flavor of madras — low-key and classic — not like the generic kind you’d find littered on bodies at a frat party. It’s true Madras sources from India, too, further reinforcing authentic vintage style.
Available in a trio of colorways, the India Madras Shirt is made in Japan and comes with white buttons throughout, a button-down collar, a single chest pocket, a nice and relaxed vintage fit with a straight hem, adjustable cuffs, and a cute Sugar Cane “True Madras” tag. Pair one of these with some equally-vintage looking jeans or fatigues and you have a serious fit in the works.
Available for $116 from Hinoya.
