    I met yesterday with a fellow who sources fabric in India.
    we discussed importing madras.
    we even discussed sourcing madras with Vegetable dyes. "bleeding madras"

    I will keep everyone updated


    Looking forward to more information ... this is fantastic new Carl!

    Has anyone gotten their J.Crew madras shirts shortened? This is the kind of shirt I could see wearing untucked (gasp). It's a nice casual shirt and I see no reason for it to be tucked in. As Im short in style terms (5 10), the shirt is pretty long on me untucked. Any thoughts on shortening them?

    I don't see why you couldn't shorten any shirt, the only problem would be the bottom button.

    Rugby's madras shirts are made with the real deal fabrics that still bleed and the fit of the shirt is perfect.

    Rugby just got a few new madras shirts that are really nice. I really wish I didn't buy a shirt just like this from J. Crew in the past 2 weeks...

    ^ Fabric looks good, but not a big fan of the Rugby fit.

    I actually picked up some very good full sleeve (BD collar) madras shirts from BB factory outlet during the F&F sale. The shirts came down to ~$32 each I think. They fit just like BB slim fit and I really like them.

    Good looking out. I just checked the BB website and they actually have slim fit madras shirts 2 for $89, and with a $10 off coupon the price is pretty attractive.

    I just wish more madras shirts were made with long sleeves. Can't bring myself to wear SS shirts.

    Carl-

    Any news on this?

    Paul Winston at Chipp has some Madras swatches for pants.

    These guys have some fabric too:

    http://store.fabrics-textiles.com/in...5f0b321a0506f6

    and will sell by the yard. Can't vouch for the quality.

    Also spoke to Joe Hemrajani at mytailor.com, who said he's looking at getting some, as there's a lot of demand.

    +1. I wear them in long sleeves only, but they aren't as easy to find in nice color combos and patterns.

    Just picked up a non-colorfast LS from Rugby. I'll let you know how it fits/washes.

    Hey guys,

    How does the sizing on rugby sport shirts run? I wear a small in stuff like gap, regular RL etc. Would I be a medium or a small in rugby shirts? Someone I think mentioned it fit a slimmer than the regular, but how much slimmer?
