Shirt Style Details
Soft Roma Button Down Collar
A tall, Italian-inspired take on the button-down collar with expressive 'roll' and a soft, unfused lining.
Soft Long One Button Cuff
The same shape as our long one button barrel, but without the stiff fusing. Soft, comfortable, and a good match for casual style shirts.
No Placket, Rounded Pocket
The front of the shirt simply folds back on itself for a cleaner yet less structured look.
Roma Buttons i
A beautiful off-white faux mother-of-pearl button. Made from a high quality plastic resin. Very durable.
A 2” curved front and back shirttail hem with reinforced side seam gussets.

Subtle detail sets this shirt apart.
This remarkably soft 80s 2-ply denim is a great year-round fabric that has a beautiful drape, and we added special contrast stitching to make it stand out just a little bit more. It’s ideal for those who like a denim shirt that can work under a sport coat, and also makes for a unique yet understated look on its own. The soft light blue color results from the reaction of the indigo dye with a heavy bleach wash.
From sourcing the perfect denim from a 185-year-old mill in Italy to testing washes with our factory for months on end, we labor over every detail of our washed indigo shirts. Each of them starts out as a plain or textured weave fabric that’s been dyed heavily with indigo. After being cut and sewn, the shirts are then garment washed using either a light enzyme, soda, or bleaching process. It's this process that gives each shirt its beautiful color and unique fading around the seams. While garment washed indigo and denim shirts are a popular product in the ready-to-wear market, they haven't previously been available in a custom fit or design due to the bulk production required for the washing process. We've worked closely with our suppliers to bring you the first truly custom garment washed indigo and denim shirts on the market. Premium, carefully crafted shirts, made to your exact specifications. Learn more about our washed indigo and denim shirts here.
Recommended Styling: Try this one with our Soft Ivy Button Down collar, Soft Front placket, Rounded pocket, and Long One Button cuff for a traditional look that also created plenty of opportunity to show off the contrast stitching. Note that, due to the special nature of the garment washing process, this fabric can only be made using soft, unfused collars, cuffs, and fronts/plackets.
Since our limited-run garment washed indigo and denim fabrics are made in small batches with a special process, we guarantee delivery by January 20th, 2021. Fabric swatches are not available.

“This was my first washed indigo fabric/shirt purchase. I could not be more pleased with the fabric. The wash is very well done and the look and feel of the fabric is everything you would hope for in a washed indigo fabric. The wash gives the fabric a soft hand and the indigo coloration is just right in this faded-li…ght version.I will purchase another washed indigo as soon as they become available.”

“Great fabric. Warmer than flannel. Yet light enough for warm weather. A look that not many have anymore.”

How do I get started?
First, welcome to Proper Cloth. We specialize in custom dress shirts, suits, jackets and pants.
The first step would be to create a size using our Smart Size Quiz. We’ll use your answers and data from thousands of satisfied customers to generate custom dress shirt sizes in your account.
To order, you can browse our gallery of curated, pre-styled options and purchase them, made to order in your custom size (and style, just click ‘Customize’ to modify).
You can use our Design-A-Shirt tool to create a custom designed shirt from scratch, selecting the fabric and all style details (collar, pocket, buttons, etc), before applying your custom size! We highly recommend only getting one shirt to start so we can lock down the Perfect Fit (Guaranteed!).
How long does it take to have a custom shirt made?
Standard finish, casual wash, and non-iron shirts generally take 12 to 14 days to produce and deliver. In all cases, the promised delivery date range at checkout should be accurate (if not slightly conservative). Click here to see our typical delivery times based on product.
Orders including shirts with Mother of Pearl buttons (Mother of Pearl, Tall Mother of Pearl, or Australian MOP) must undergo special Fish and Wildlife inspections that may cause delays. For this reason, the expected delivery date range will be extended by an additional 14 days.
Can I change the collar or cuff style? Can I add a pocket? Short sleeves? etc.
As a made-to-measure shirtmaker, we offer a wide variety of style features. Proper Cloth shirts can be styled with any of our 30+ different collar styles, 12 different cuff styles, and one of our 9 different pocket options can absolutely be added.
Just click the 'Customize' button next to any of our pre-designed, photographed shirts to edit the design however you wish!
Short Sleeve shirts can be ordered by specifying as such under the Cuff/Sleeve section of the Design-A-Shirt tool.
Do you make shirts that can be worn untucked?
Absolutely. Taking our Smart Size Quiz will generate an untucked long sleeve and untucked short sleeve size for you automatically (in addition to a traditional, tucked-in long sleeve size).
If you've modified your Smart Size for the perfect tucked-in dress shirt fit, then we recommend decreasing the back length 1.5-2.5" and increasing the midsection 0.5-1.0" to save as your perfect untucked, casual fit.
How do I order a short sleeve shirt?
First, make sure you have a Short Sleeve shirt size. You can update your Smart Size Quiz to automatically generate one, or you can click here to convert one of your custom long sleeve sizes to short sleeve.
From there, you can shop from our gallery of short sleeve shirts, click the Customize Style button to modify any long sleeve shirt, or build a short sleeve shirt from scratch with our Design-A-Shirt tool.
Then under Cuff/Sleeve options, simply select Short Sleeve.
Do you offer rush delivery?
Rush delivery is not available for custom made products. With ready-to-wear and stocked products, we have a little more flexibility.
Our Perfect Fit Guarantee
If you’re not entirely happy with the fit of your custom shirt (or anything else about the shirt) you can return it to us for a complimentary remake in a new size or style. We excel at making remakes quick and hassle-free. If remaking the shirt doesn’t suit you, you can also return the shirt for a full refund.
