Albiate Washed Denim Western Shirt
Don’t worry about shrinkage — we’ll account for that automatically based on fabric choice. You can fine-tune your collar size down to 0.1” or adjust any of the 16 other customizable size parameters when you create a custom size.
Sleeve length is measured from the center back to the edge of the shoulder and down to the end of the cuff. Fine-tune your sleeve length down to 0.1” or adjust any of the 16 other customizable size parameters when you create a custom size.
Slim Fit will be nicely fitted, yet comfortable. Super Slim Fit is for those that prefer a particularly trim fit and are not bothered by slight tightness or limited range of motion. Classic Fit is a more generous, roomy fit that won’t hug the body closely.

A true Western shirt fabric if there ever was one.
This hardy denim twill uses special slub yarns in both the warp and weft for a perfectly textured look. It’s made with a 20/1 x 20/1 twill and is sure to last a lifetime thanks to its dense weave and quality construction. After months of testing with our factory, we finally landed on the perfect heavy bleach wash to achieve this beautiful light blue.
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 Franklin Spread collar, Western front, Western Flap pockets, and Snap buttons for a classic Western look. 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.

Mark in MASCOT, NSW
“The Albiate Washed Indigo Slub Denim is amazing. Soft yet slubby, beautifully faded. Goes great with raw selvedge indigo jeans, and the color differential avoids the "Canadian tuxedo" effect.”
Peter in New York, NY
“Awesome! Only thing that would make it better would be a little more stretch.”
Jordan in Dayton, OH
“Like the fabric. Met my expectations on all dimensions. However, I didn’t get the fit right so I don’t wear it as much.”

“heavier weight than expected. true country shirt. nice under blazer.”
terry in LAFAYETTE, LA
“I was hoping that the denim would have been a bit lighter in color. If You are looking for a "heavy" denim fabric, such as you might find in a jean work shirt, this probably isn’t the shirt for you. However for an incredibly soft and ’dressier’ denim look, this fabric can’t be beaten ! I never knew d…enim could be so comfortable.”
Kevin in SAINT LOUIS, MO
“Appealing subtle variations in the fabric elevate this one above others. You can find denim shirts at other sites, but where else can you get one that’s cut exactly to your size and specifications?”

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 any style of Mother of Pearl buttons 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 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.
