Light, comfortable and summery, this blue and brown madras check is great for semi casual lunches on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The Madras Check is a light-weight summer fabric with a typically plaid design. Probably inspired by the humble 'lungi' , this fabric is currently the toast of Parisian fashion. In the 1960's a style in vogue was the bleeding Madras, that used non colour fast dyes. The resultant bleeding and fading of the fabric gave the fabric a different look on every wear. The Stiff Collar is a cool new e-brand that sells 'somewhat snooty English shirts' at decidedly non-snooty prices. The English cut stiff collar shirts are rather different when compared to regular high street shirts. Inspired by the hallowed tailoring traditions of Jermyn Street and Saville Row, these 100% cotton shirts are suffused with the distinctive styling elements that make up the English cut - longer shirt tails, close to body cuts, barrel cuffs , a split yoke and of course a stiff, Windor cutaway collar.
