Some of it is done well, but mostly it looks garish and ugly, more so when worn by hipster wannabes. However, you can still get subdued but excellent patchwork madras from certain places if you look hard enough. The famous 'bleeding madras' of yesteryear was really wonderful - sadly they don't make it anymore.
By the 60ss they had perfected the vegetable dyeing process so that it would not run, but customers actually liked the look patina? So they started making shirts that would actually run and fade a little. My father has a bunch of these shirts that he bought in the mid 70s and still wears proudly.
I have a few that I stole from him but when I was growing up, we did not see any of this 'bleeding madras' fabric. Brooks brothers Black Fleece line makes some excellent short and long sleeved madras shirts that are actually pretty authentic.
I own a few of them and like them very much. I have a few NOS shirts from O'connells that I got a few years back and the colors are really beautiful nothing extreme. The shirts looked fantastic new and even better now. I'll try and take some photos and post them here soon.

Definitely wearable shirts but they seem to lack the charm of the O'connells ones I posted above. But hey, atleast they try! Not all plaid shirts are madras shirts!! Sadly, I don't see them anymore on the website. I bought two shirts and I am very glad I did. I'm not sure if the fit is any better than the ones at Dann Online.
