Madras Shorts

MUST HAVES  |  PANTS & TROUSERS  |  Madras Shorts

It is another disgustingly hot day today, one of those days where one finds oneself constantly sweating. I don't think there is anyone that can successfully look good and be sweaty at the same time! I certainly am not feeling particularly attractive at the moment. Oh well... another ice tea by the pool will help some.

This evening I have been invited to a casual garden party and hog roast at the home of a dear friend of mine. I am rather looking forward to it. I think this is an occasion that calls for Madras shorts and deck shoes with a white shirt. Madras shorts are very definitely a preppy Must Have.

The pair I have opted for are not dissimilar to the ones in the picture below and are my favorite shorts without a doubt. I simply love the cheeky, fun image that Madras gives off. They are also supremely comfortable in this weather and, I like to think, quite smart. With a white Oxford Button-Down these will look great.
Blue Madras also looks great and is perfect for lounging on the beach or whilst out to sea on the yacht. You can get these shorts from most retailers and designers. Mine happen to be from Ralph Lauren. Amazon carry a range of Madras shorts from JoS A. Bank, Orvis and Nantucket Brand to name a few.
