Madras is iconic for summer wear along the New England Coast, arguably even more than seersucker. So, as the weather warmed up slightly, I was able to break out my Camp Shorts, kindly sent to me by Cape Madras.
The color is "Cannes"
Cape Madras, a Maine Coast vendor, makes the best madras shorts I have found. The authentic madras, made in Cape Madras' factory in India, is rich in color, soft to the touch, and has a classic and comfortable cut.
These shorts look great new, and will get even better with age.
