Ten-Second Takeaway

Madrasi Checks is a Chennai born clothing brand that specialises in menswear with Madras Checks, additional check designs and bright colours.

Started just six months ago, Madrasi Checks is a company started by Salman, a fashion insider with years of experience at a top fashion brand. The origin of the company’s name comes from the fabric and check design called “Madras Checks” that started in Madras {duh}, and became super popular in both India and abroad from the 60’s. So to pay homage to the plaid pattern that started from namma Chennai, Madrasi Checks stitches and prints check patterns on to all of their clothes, that’s right, every single one!. Even the plain colour T shirts and shirts have checks in some form or the other. Just roll up the sleeves or take a look at the pocket and it’s there. We like how the checks add a little flavour to the flatness on plain single colour clothes.

However if visible checks are what you’re looking for, you’ve got the timeless casual party shirt; the full sleeve, slim fit check shirt that looks great with jeans. To prevent the monotony of only check designs, Madrasi Checks adds colour to all of their products. Most shirts and tees are available in a range of colours, with our favourites being the check shirts in primary colours. All of their products are made out of pure cotton and no blends are used. If we had to nitpick we’d say that we’re a little bummed that they only produce shirts and t-shirts, but they’ve only been around for six months and more importantly have plans of getting in to other garments too, so we’re certain that will change soon.

Check Please

Madrasi Checks operates out of their online store and offers pan-India delivery at nominal charges. They’ve so far catered to customers in Assam, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh as well. For a brand so iconically Tamilian, we think it’s really cool that they’re popular in other states. Their online shop currently has a sale on all items, with discounts of upto 40 per cent! We think you should check them out for their shirts alone as that’s what they specialise in and that’s what we thought was their coolest product. Madrasi Checks is going to be a part of the Summertime pop-up exhibition happening at Rush Madras, Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, and we recommend you check these guys out, if you’re in the market for menswear.
