Here we are again, it’s CQ360. A blog, whose author’s madras have gone to the ginghams. That’s backwood fashion jargon for my coat has become the kid’s tissue.
Versatile, lightweight, and almost as fresh as the Prince of Bel Air’s coat, this madras fabric not only makes it easy to hide drool, but doubles as an impromptu picnic blanket.
But be forewarned, it’s casual appeal will transform a lazy afternoon into a strawberry rhubarb hand pie binge only a mint julep can cure.
Which is why I never leave home without a good gingham checkered napkin. Quick on his feet, and soft to the touch. This cotton is perfect for wiping a messy mouth, yet a disaster as a coat pocket handkerchief. So before your madras go to the ginghams, rely on southern etiquette, and place him on your lap.
This is John Galliano Fall/Winter 2012…
