If you wish to heed the words of Vampire Weekend and “dress yourself in bleeding madras,” look no further than Barbour’s Summer Madras Short-Sleeve Shirt, now 30% off at East Dane. While we can’t confirm whether the shirt is actually bleeding madras or not, it’s still madras, an ideal fabric for summer thanks to its lightweight, airy festiveness and a handsome addition to one’s seasonal wardrobe, elevating an otherwise boring silhouette into a shirt that’s a little more fun and a lot more interesting to look at. So go ahead and make Ezra Koenig proud this summer.
