Sebago revisits the classic chore shirt and makes it lightweight for the summer. A regular fit, this Cotton patchwork shirt with Madras pattern features front opening with buttons, 3 front pockets of which 2 with buttons, one internal pocket, personalized external hang/dry loop behind the neck, and rubber finish buttons overall. A rugged and versatile all-season choice, the Springpoint shirt owes its name to Spring Point Ledge Light, a lighthouse in South Portland, Maine (USA), that marks a dangerous obstruction on the west side of the main shipping channel into Portland Harbor. 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.
