Madras or otherwise that jacket looks great mate. I'd wear it in a second. Like the look of the shirt too fella. What's the story on that. Nice one.

Thank you! Jacket is vintage, picked it up maybe 7 years ago or so? Long sleeve shirt is DNA that I got a few months ago ( I think).

The seersucker debate of 2019!

How about madras?



Nice jacket that, but it doesn't look like madras.

Mover over seersucker debate of 2019, here comes the madras debate of 2019!

Fair enough GS, it's a vintage cotton sports coat, maybe I'm being a bit loose on my definition. I'll hit the bulls-eye tomorrow :)

Was given some letters my dad wrote home when he lived in England in the 50's and there were some interesting ones that are very specific on clothes, guess my dad was having trouble finding what he wanted at the time (1956), in writing he mentions "All the shirts here are the old-fashioned type with removable collars", ...and goes on to discuss getting his new topcoat from the tailors. He writes quite a bit to my aunt requesting shirts " 15"x35" and with button down tab collars and french cuffs if possible. I would like to have them in a slight stripe or light pastel or just plain white."  another letter says "On those shirts, they must repeat must have 35" sleeve lengths, 15" neck, french cuffs, button down collars or pin collars (preferrably pin collars) and they can be pastel, white or pinstripe and made of broadcloth or just plain cotton."  He doesn't mention the tailors name, but he mentions getting his "three button suit out from the tailors" and having labels insdie that say tailored especially for ......like father like son I guess :)
