No the Madras shorts have not been renamed the Chennai shorts.
Are you tired of the same ol’ khaki cargo shorts from Old Navy that you’ve had since college? Everybody else is. The Madras shorts are a fun and colorful way to break out of the khaki rut.
You can tell the iconic pattern from a mile away by the patchwork of different tartan patterns. These shorts go especially well with t-shirts and polos. Since the pattern itself has a lot going on, make sure your shirt is more subdued. So no crazy patterns. Best to go with just a solid. Pair them with your Timex Weekender and some loafers (feel free to go sockless in the summer!).
