Thomas Edison may have had 2,332 patents issued to him but not a single one of those was for a shirt made with performance fabric that looks just like one made with traditional cotton. That would have to wait until Mizzen + Main came along. And while Mizzen + Main’s past offerings have been impressive, the brand new Leeward Collection and the Edison, in particular, are the best yet.
The Edison is a madras plaid shirt that might actually beat madras at its own game. Famed for keeping wearers cool in the hot Indian temperatures, madras is the traditional go-to summer fabric. Mizzen + Main’s performance fabric breathes just like madras, keeping you cool and eliminating sweat. It also stays wrinkle free and dries in 16 minutes after being washed. Incredibly it does all this while still looking like a normal dress shirt. It’s an innovation worthy of sharing a name with the most prolific innovator of them all.
