1960s Brooks Brothers lightweight Indian cotton button down shirt with madras printed stripes, the perfect modern prep button down for spring/summer. The colors are happy pink, yellow, green, and blue, and it is a great shirt to be worn with jeans or khakis. It's in like-new vintage condition and is soft from yeas of washings, and clean (because I cleaned it). The "hand" (the feel) of the cotton is soft and buttery. Madras is a printing technique, not a pattern, so the Madras plaids that you might think of as being typical India Madras are really referring to the printing (which often was touted in garment tags as "Guaranteed to Bleed"). The ink runs in bleeding madras, creating those gorgeous blurry madras plaids and prints. This shirt, labeled "authentic India Madras" is a printed India cotton.

15-1/2" neck
18" shoulder
31-1/2" back of neck to back hem
