The Madras Sportcoat (specifically O’Connell’s)

We’ve talked about madras on this site many times, and I’m sure we’ll discuss it in the future.  With that said, I must point out the incredible selection of madras there is at O’Connell’s.  Not just madras, but the good kind of madras – the India-loomed, bleeding kind.  They have everything you can think of – shirts, shorts, trousers, swimsuits, and sportcoats.

The madras sportcoat has made it’s way back to quite a few catalogs lately with the patch version.  Fine – but here’s the original.  These are the perfect summer staple for any daytime event.  They are a statement, pseudo-sartorial piece, but not too ‘costume-y’.  Pair it with a white oxford, khakis, and loafers (absolutely NO socks allowed) for the look – I wouldn’t pile too many GTH options with this at the same time.  O’Connell’s has the best selection of madras sportcoats on the web.  All are three-button un-darted sacks that should be rolled to a 3/2 for a more casual – and classic – look.  Feast your eyes:

    The jacket in the first photo is great – it’s not loud/flashy but classic and classy. Nice stuff.

    The first pattern is classic. This is one of the two ultimate GTH pieces. The other is madras slacks.
