Madras blazers are fairly preppy but I want to try sporting one around campus and in LA when I go home for summer with my diesels, es, and apcs, and chucks. I have an opportunity to snag a pretty nice fitting one for a great price but was wondering what kind of shirts I could pair with it? I figure no polos (fine by me I'm not that into them) and no pink (again no problem). Anyone have any suggestions? The more creative the better.

Madras is usually a big plaid so white shirts are the standard complement. Stripes get busy. But there are all sorts of t shirt graphix that could work.

White shirt. Madras is extremely preppy, and all the statement you need to make.

You're going to look preppy in madras no matter what, but if you want to dial down the prep-school factor you could maybe throw a white AA s/s henley under it, or maybe a Krell henley in natural, with a couple bottons undone.
