For the perfect pair of madras shorts head to the aptly named Just Madras, which has shorts in four different patchwork madras patterns. For Michiganders, the Mackinac Island is a natural choice, though the Great Island pattern (pictured above and below) is bit more classic.
Not only are the shorts of excellent quality, but they're also made in America — Massachusetts to be exact.
The bottom line: For $98, the shorts from Just Madras are an outstanding value that would look great with a summer-weight navy blazer — for the peacocks out there, consider seersucker — and loafers. Just consider ordering a size larger, as the shorts have a trimmer fit.
