The Find: a fetching shirt that’ll glow like your papa’s forehead used to

The Find: a fetching shirt that’ll glow like your papa’s forehead used to

Originating in Scotland back in the 12th century, tartan plaid was traditionally made locally for clans from different areas across the country. The pattern has since evolved from the classic tartan used for kilts and blankets, making its way into the mainstream with variations like Buffalo check, Glen plaid and Madras being used in contemporary pieces like button-down shirts or shorts for men, and sundresses or shirt-dresses for women.  One of our favourite plaid pieces in the city, especially with Father’s Day around the corner, is this happy Madras plaid shirt—in a red, green, blue and yellow palette—by Eton, which we found at Theodore 1922 on Bloor Street. Eton is known in the U.K. for its quality and styling, and this shirt is made from the highest-grade Pima cotton and equipped with a stiff cutaway collar for those days when Dad wants to feel extra cool. He’ll be less sweaty, and we’ll all approve of this new development (which will become normal, since these shirts last for what seems like forever). $275.
