Scandia Woods Authentic Madras Plaid Shirt
I returned these shirts today.
The colors of these shirts were too vibrant. My husband wanted shirts with a more muted tone.

Colors are brighter than I expected.
Nice fabric, comfortable to wear. Washes nicely, wrinkles shake out.

Great casual shirt
This is a great shirt for casual occasions. Cool for on a hot day, as well. Fits well and stays looking crisp.

My husband tells me I like to dress him up in bright colors, and this shirt definitely qualifies. I've seen lots of madras, but this one is truly handsome and vibrant. He looks great in it, too! He always gets complements when he wears it out, so that speaks volumes. He likes that it is such a nice light weight for GA summers. Soft fabric that doesn't shrink in the wash.

I washed it before wearing in cold water, dried on low heat and removed as soon as the buzzer went off. The part of the shirt where it buttons down was wrinkled and folded over where it is sewn down (button hole side) and needs serious ironing which I don't do. The rest of the shirt was fairly wrinkled as well. I thought the blended cotton/polyester wouldn't do quite like this. Maybe it's because the material is very light weight. I washed some other shirts of the same type with it that I purchased from Blair previously and they were fine. Will give it one more wash to see if any of it corrects otherwise I'll send it to the Goodwill. The colors on the shirt are great.

Placard wrinkled like a 100% cotton shirt?
This is supposed to be a mixed fabric shirt, I have other mixed fabric shirts by the same label and they had no trouble remaining wrinkle free after the first wash.
This shirt is highly disappointing as I stopped buying 100% cotton shirts because of this irritating wrinkle flaw.
Unless I received a mislabeled shirt, I can't imagine how a mixed fabric shirt would respond so poorly after the first wash, i even washed a similar fabric, but different named Scandia woods shirt and it retained it's placard without any extreme wrinkles, so disappointing.
