Our Positions

Engineering Team

From the beginning, great engineering has been core to Proper Cloth. Our ecommerce platform is built from the ground up to support totally custom, made-to-order clothing. We also build tools to automate and streamline business operations, and to analyze data for smarter decision-making. We’re a small, core team building and continuously releasing new features and updates every day. We’re looking for extremely capable engineers that bring new expertise and ideas to the table.

Many ecommerce platforms exist. What makes Proper Cloth’s unique is that it’s built from the ground up to support totally custom, made-to-order clothing. It’s this element of custom that makes what we’re building so powerful: we can quite literally produce a shirt in any style and any size. Quickly and cost effectively. Perfect fit becomes a reality and user experiences become truly personalized. Through it all we generate and collect data about fit and style preferences that other ecommerce companies can only dream of. We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of what’s possible.

With so many options, custom clothing can easily become overwhelming. It takes an intuitive, multi-layered front-end design to keep it simple and user friendly for novices, yet flexible for experts. Complex, data powered algorithms make custom sizing a snap. Sophisticated business process flows enable customers to help themselves without assistance. Powerful backend systems keep our operations team lean. Extensive use of data analytics and optimization help us continuously refine and improve our marketing, user experience and even physical products.

Some of the features and tools we’ve built include:

  • Custom shirt configurator
  • Custom size prediction algorithms
  • Wishlist management
  • Custom size management
  • Custom shopping cart and checkout
  • Custom CRM and CMS
  • Order management tools
  • Fraud detection
  • Business analytics tools
  • Continuous feedback systems

Some of the technologies we currently leverage include:

  • Object oriented PHP with ADOdb abstraction layer
  • MySQL
  • Linux based server admin
  • GitHub
  • AWS
  • Stripe and Paypal payment processing
  • LESS CSS Framework
  • Node, jQuery, Vue.js

Marketing Team

At Proper Cloth, we’re on a mission to create the world’s next great luxury brand. A brand with all the attention to detail, quality and exceptional customer service that you’d expect from a heritage luxury brand, but built on a platform of technology, leveraging custom fit, and made-to-order for a superior customer experience. We look up to companies like Tesla and Apple that have combined technology and design for beautiful, functional products, as well as the great menswear brands and retailers of the past. We’ve worked hard to create the best-in-class men’s custom shirt offering in the world, but we need to spread the word. It takes a great marketing team to help explain why what we do is so special. At Proper Cloth our in-house marketing team focuses on generating positive brand awareness, driving new customer acquisition, and continuing to engage with existing clients. Our approach to marketing is a fascinating blend of quantifiable, data driven analysis, and creative, qualitative thinking.

Our aesthetic is refined, elevated and minimalist.

But we believe that great design is about more than typography, color tones and spacing. To produce great work, one must thoroughly understand the information being presented and the audience being presented to.

  • You are familiar with, or proficient in, HTML coding standards or coding responsive HTML emails and have used email marketing platforms like Mailchimp, Klaviyo, Constant Contact.
  • You have a refined aesthetic and can design to specific branding needs with considerations to usability, simplicity, and consistency.
  • You have an obsessive attention to detail, and care about subtle details that most people won't notice.
  • You have a positive, optimistic, can-do attitude and are committed to becoming the absolute best designer you can be.
  • You are honest and humble and can give and take critique productively.
  • Bonus points if you have skills in animation, illustration, coding, or 3D modeling.
What we need you to do:
  • Design concepts for our marketing emails, prepare drafts, gather feedback and export final designs. We have over a million email subscribers (!)

  • Design concepts for landing and product pages, mockup drafts for internal review and work with developers to implement and test these pages.
  • Design concepts for printed brand collateral, mockup drafts for internal review and support production of printed materials.
  • Maintain design systems and libraries to ensure product-wide visual consistency.
Benefits:
  • Full health benefits (medical, dental, vision, and more)
  • Competitive 401(k) with match
  • Generous custom clothing allowance

More About Marketing & Advertising at Proper Cloth:

The Team

Our marketing and advertising team is driven by a group of nine designers, photographers and copywriters - and closely tied to new product development, web design, merchandising and data analytics.

Brand Values

As a brand, our marketing seeks to project the following values:

  • Attention to Detail
  • Reaching Ones Potential
  • Earned Success
  • Technology Enabled
  • Quiet Confidence
  • Approachable
Our Marketing Approach

We believe that building a brand and driving a response from the customer are not mutually exclusive activities. They go together and support each other. It can be a fine line to walk, but it’s critical for long term success. Marketing encompasses a variety of efforts at Proper Cloth, but three in particular are worth highlighting:

  1. Tell Our Product’s Stories We’re proud of our products: the materials, the design, and the craftsmanship. A big part of our marketing is explaining what makes these products special. We’re trying to help the customer appreciate the products for what they are and make better buying decisions.

    • Email Marketing, Product Pages, Category Landing Pages.
  2. Produce Lookbooks and Fashion Campaigns ​Great design and quality are critical, but clothing purchases are also driven by how well a brand resonates with a person’s personal identity. With this in mind, we go through a great effort to produce exciting images, videos and lookbooks that exhibit the Proper Cloth lifestyle and communicate more emotional brand values like adventure and ambition.

    • Lookbooks, Style Guides, Advertising Campaigns, Email Marketing, Home Page Design, Social Media.
  3. Paid Advertising Our paid advertising is almost entirely focused on new customer acquisition with the practical message that “Proper Cloth makes it easy to get perfect fitting custom shirts”. We run paid campaigns across a wide range of online and offline channels. The key to our approach is to experimentation. We’re always trying new concepts, channels, creative, copy, and landing pages - and measuring everything. We’re incredibly data driven, continuously evaluating conversion rates and customer acquisition costs to optimize campaigns.
    • Facebook, Google, SiriusXM, Podcasts, Mailers, Magazines, Influencers.
The Challenge

​Driving consistent, double digit growth, in a way that is profitable and not brand dilutive isn’t easy. It requires finding the careful balance between brand and response driven creative, between aspirational and relatable positioning, and between explainer and lifestyle content. It requires thinking through the entire customer journey, from first exposure to Proper Cloth, to understanding of what we do, to making their first purchase. And in a fast moving organization, it requires careful communication and coordination between multiple people and parties, including product development, web design, copywriting, photography, social media, merchandising and more. ​

The Opportunity

​​At Proper Cloth, we believe we have an opportunity to create the next great luxury menswear brand — a unique brand with a more efficient supply chain and a superior customer experience, all driven by custom, made-to-order products. ​ Today we’re the largest men’s custom shirtmaker in the world, but we’re still a small player in the overall menswear and luxury markets. In 2021 we’re focused on refining and scaling custom suits, jackets and pants, and opening additional physical showrooms.

With our unique expertise in technology and engineering, you’ll be joining a marketing team that already has a powerful, data-driven infrastructure. Come help us improve our marketing and create a menswear brand that lasts for decades to come.
