This pattern gets its name from the former name of Chennai. These are colloquially called Madrasi checks and are distinguished by a pattern of colourful checks and stripes put together. These stripes basically cross each other to make uneven checks. Usually seen in lungis in Chennai, today they have become quite a phenomenon on international runways.

These checks are broken or uneven and look like a hound’s tooth. Works best when in black-and-white shades but today, there’s been a variety of hound’s tooth coloured patterns. Our personal favourite is the classic black-and-white houndstooth blazer!
