Madras can be good
Madras typically is ugly and vibrant and obnoxious for no good reason. But sometimes madras steps away from its cliched preppy roots, gets a modernization and becomes a great look. Much like the Gitman Vintage 80s sport shirts we featured recently, the new J Crew madras shirts hit an old classic out of the park. A new modern cut, bright colors, bigger pattern and nothing ugly about it. We particularly like the dark colors mixed with red, cream and vibrant aqua in the "baltic" version, but the green one can look great with the right complexion.
Thankfully, J Crew breathed new life into the madras. Just don't wear our pops old madras shirts, those still need updating.
