When the warm-weather calls for living easy and freedom of movement, shorts are the perfect informal style essential. These no-fuzz regular fit bermuda shorts are made of lightweight Cotton patchwork with Madras pattern they feature: elastic waistband, zip fly and button closure, two front bias pockets, two back flap pockets, and a Sebago Docksides personalised flag label on the back. The Tidal shorts owe their name to the significant tidal movement that Maine experiences every day, with an excursion of 8-11 feet of water ebbing and flowing up and down the shoreline, the beach and in the rivers that flow to the ocean. The name Madras derives from Madraspatnam, the site chosen by the British East India Company for a permanent settlement in 1639. To secure a reliable labor supply, they had promised a 30-year exemption from duties for Indian weavers in the area, and within a year nearly 400 families of weavers had settled in Madras. Popular in Europe for its lightness and breathability from the start, undyed Madras evolved into the classic beautiful plaid patterns in the 17th Century, became the traditional dress of Madras residents and conquered the world. To this day, Madras fabric remains to be dyed just as it was on day one: by hand while still in yarn form.
