I still stop by and bang golf balls on the third floor at Brooks whenever I’m passing through Midtown.
Recently I spied two pairs of madras shorts that had a real heyday vibe, thanks to the color palettes of olive and burgundy. They certainly feel like they’d be more at home in the pages of “Take Ivy” than the eye-popping madras we’ve been seeing so much of lately.
In fact, the olive is actually darker, and therefore more vintage-looking, in person than in the web shot above with all-white background.
According to Brooks the shorts are made from real Indian madras, carry an 11-inch inseam, and are priced at $95.
Below, courtesy of powerHouse Books, are a few suggestions on how to style them. — CC
