Good-Looking, Cool, Long-Sleeved Madras Shirts

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bob, An Iowa Walker from Iowa on Monday, July 4, 2016
I am 6' 1" tall and 180 lbs., and I was looking for long-sleeved Madras shirts to protect my aging skin on hot sunny days. For less than $5 a piece, I took my chances on 2 Gramicci Madras shirts. They are attractive and the Large-Regular size fit me like a slightly-fitted shirt would. I would have preferred a slightly looser fit since I plan on wearing them on hot days. The 2 shirts have now been worn and washed once each and they still fit me. However, I took care to wash them in COLD water only, and they were line dried ("solar dryer").

The loose weave that some reviewers complained about, is an assert for a hot-weather shirt, and a characteristic of all proper Madras shirts. If you carry significantly more weight on a 6'1'' frame, then you may be better off with an Extra Large size. I would have given these 5 stars, if their fit was just a bit looser.
