A million or so years ago, the fab guys over at Nantucket Brands sent me one of their madras hoodies to try on for size and I promised to review it.
Here it is from their website:
Isn't it super cute??
I think it's a perfect wrap for this time of year. It's an extra layer, but it isn't a super heavy weight. The madras lining (in the navy version, anyway) has a little bit of almost every color...a little pink, a little red, a little green, etc. So it goes with absolutely everything. One caveat: it does run pretty small. I usually wear a small or a size two. I ordered a small and it is pretty fitted. Not too tight, but definitely not sloppy at all. Also, I have (to quote Mr. TC) "long monkey arms" and when I cuff the sleeves to reveal the madras lining, the sleeves are an inch or two above my wrist bone. So you may want to order a size up, depending upon what kind of fit you want. You can pick up one of your own here.
And in case that isn't enough madras for you, you can get 50% off all madras clothing at Three Chickadees.
Also, Cape Madras is having an end of summer sale, through September 20, with 50% off all merchandise.
