I'm not sure if it has been posted already but JCrew has several madras shirts season. Some are available in slim and tall sizes.

Haha, this is kinda what happened to my friend. He asked about it and they said, "Madras is a state..."

Their plaids leave a bit to be desired this season, in my opinion. Brooks Brothers has some good options as well right now. Personally, I prefer exploded patterns to small, repeating patterns. Madras

The question is where to get the real Indian madras these days. None of that ersatz stuff.

I bought a Gant shirt from Barney's last summer. It was the real deal and wasn't that expensive. So nice to wear when it gets into triple digits here in the South.

A colleague of mine does research in India, and says real deal bleeding madras is still being made in some of the cities. I've been meaning to proxy some shirtings from him, but haven't had the chance.

Group buy:) I just picked up a new madras shirt from O'Connells. I'll have to see about taking a photo to post.

I used to own a few Alexander Julian madras shirts. I wished I had kept them. They had beautiful colors. Anyway, sources: I figure these are not bleeding but rather coagulated. Land's End, Taylor Stitch, and Dann Online (big variety).
