I received a pair of their Chesapeake Bay Madras shorts and am deciding to give a small review.
I must say that when I received these back in June 2010 I was pleasantly surprised. These shorts are really holding up pretty well and I've worn them quite a bit. They are 100 percent cotton with two front and two rear pockets and fully lined and cost about $48.00. They're also made in India which is a good thing considering the fabric takes its name from the former English name of the city of Chennai, India.
When I received them they had a stiffness that's expected from a new product. The first thing I do with new clothing is to immediately wash them. This is very good for testing the quality. I haven't noticed any fading as of yet but they have gotten softer. They've also remained true to shape with very minimal shrinkage.
I give these shorts a four out of five ranking. They have become my favorite madras and should get better with age.
