Madras is the most preppiest fabric used primarily for summer clothing as blazers, pants, shorts etc. This hand-woven, checkered, cotton fabric originated from the former English name of the city Chennai in India.

An Italian, Massimo Osti changed the rules of fashion. He began as a graphic designer. In 1968 he designs his first t-shirt collection using four-color printing process and silkscreen which, at the time was used only for printing a paper. In the early 1970s he started experimenting with unique dyeing techniques and materials that revolutionized fashion industry. He started the fashion brand Chester Perry, later renamed the “C.P. Company”. In 1982, ongoing research led to new brand Stone Island and the first collection were made from new fabric inspired from the tarps used by truck drivers.
