I quite like these Madras offerings from J. Crew this season: I may procure the one on the right.

Those look very nice.

I saw a very nice one at J Crew the other day in long sleeve that was very fitted looking. Might have to grab one.

Bear in mind that they are $70 -- too expensive in my opinion for a shirt that is sized S/M/L. They are full sleeved though, so that is a consideration.

Lately I've been looking at some Gitman Vintage shirts. They cost quite a bit more than most of the offerings I've seen here so far (about $150), but that's SW&D for you. http://www.gitmanvintage.com/cotton_madras.html Also, one from GANT Rugger, at $125: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...sh-Navy/Detail I like this thread. I'll have to try some of the LE shirts.

These are nice, but OUCH at $150.

FWIW, I wear a 15.5x34 in regular BB OCBDs and I wear a small in these LEs.

Hard to pass up at that price... Could you post shoulder and chest measurements from your size Small?

Approx. measurements:

p-2-p: 21"
s-2-s (back): 17.5"
BoC: 29.5"

Keep in mind that Madras shirts are not meant to be tight fitting.

Bought a few Lands End Madras shirts. Too large as usual (size small) but I like the fabric and deep colors so I'll have one tailored. Still cheaper than J Crew.

Does anyone have a source for Madras fabric or know of a shirtmaker who carries it? Cego? Chipp2/Winston Tailors?

Mercer is the only one I know and he has only a few samples.

^Do you know of any source in India? I was in a huge shop in Chennai but saw no Madras fabric, and couldn't seem to describe it well. Calling it "Madras" there didn't seem to distinguish it particularly. Maybe taking a sample with me would help.
