A unique, must-have slate blue.
This super soft and versatile 60s 2-ply denim works year-round, drapes beautifully, and looks fantastic as a Western shirt, overshirt, or dressed up under a sport coat. We give it a heavy bleach wash to achieve the beautiful slate blue color. It’s one of our absolute favorite colors, and one every guy should have in his closet.
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, no placket, and Slate Horn buttons for an elevated denim 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.

Kelley in Orange Beach, AL
Naphtali in Lanham, MD
“Really a personal preference rather than a real criticism but the fabric felt a little too floppy for my taste, and I didn’t like the puckering around the seams.”
Bryan in Maplewood, NJ
“Another winner from proper cloth. My wife urged mr to get this shirt and I was skeptical. Boy was I wrong. This is a medium weight soft fabric that wears quite well.”
David in Cutchogue, NY
“Great blue denim casual shirt”
Michael in Kensington, NSW

Jacob in Evanston, IL
rogers in Melrose, TN
“I liked the fabric’s textured and nuanced dye. It has multi-dimensional subtleties. I am looking forward to natural fading of the color over time.”
Kenichi in Holliston, MA
“Light and colorful”
john in Stillwater, OK
“Great shirt that exceeds my expectations”
Frank in Sapphire, NC

David Renae in Cape Coral, FL
“It’s fine. Not as soft as anticipated.”
James in Houston, TX
“Returned this shirt on account of it being too thin/lightweight to look and feel like a denim shirt. Description says lightweight, so it’s my fault, I just didn’t expect it to be quite so lightweight. Soft franklin collar also came way more understated than expected. My inexperience more than the fabric led to my d…issatisfaction.”
Alex in Chicago, IL
“I love the deep indigo color, and the fabric is nice and light. It has a soft feel but nice drape when I wear it.”
Gary in Norwood, NJ
“This came out great!”
michael in Ojai, CA

Matt in North Canton, OH
“Looks good but nothing unusual. Not one people will really notice, but should be really fun to wear.”

Richard in Lutz, FL
“Looks great, quite lightweight.”
Scott in Coburg, Victoria
“Really great fabric and wear.”
Jeffrey in New York, NY
“The fabric was just as advertised. The color was described well online and met my expectations. This fabric is lighter in weight and thinner than the typical “denim” shirt you would buy from Levi’s for example. This washed denim shirt can be dressed up under a sport coat - with or without a tie - and can also …be worn in a more casual way with a lighter color of jeans. I’m pleased with very aspect of the fabric.”
Mike in Pittsburgh, PA
“My favourite denim shirt. Lightweight but still enough weight to drape well. Really soft.”
Steven in Waverley,

“Amazing color and fabric.”
Dimitrios in NEWARK, NJ
“Love all the denim fabrics.”
Erik in DALLAS, TX
“Although my shirt was beautifully made, the fabric was so soft and lightweight that it never looked crisp even right after laundering (with light starch). It seems suitable for very casual occasions, therefore, but not as versatile as I had hoped. I would still recommend it to a friend with these reservations.”
Alan in Spring Lake, NJ
lawrence in London, uk
Philip in Garden City, NY
“The best fabric for So Cal living”
Russell in Los Angeles, CA

Mark in Brooklyn, NY
“Beautiful shirt: I keep getting vsarious shades of this denim. This one is very nice not too dark, not too light.”
Paul in Laguna Beach, CA
“Very nice fabric in terms of look, feel and texture. Be aware that even though this is technically a denim, it is much, much lighter weight than you’d typically expect denim to be, and as such it doesn’t really wear or drape like typical denim. Still, the light weight makes it cool and easy to wear even in the summ…er and makes for a very versatile and comfy shirt.”
Aaron in Tucson, AZ
“Great, fabric. Perfect, casual wear.”
Elliot in New York, NY
Parth in New York, NY
“Only received the shirt today but fabric is awesome. Very soft and nice on the skin. Was also ordering the slightly darker fabric from the same type of garment and was surprised how similiar the two colors were. Was hoping for a little bit more contrast. But love them both.”
Robert in Zurich,
“This shirt exceeded my expectations. The washed denim fabric feels rich and soft....obvious high quality. Please make this shirt in additional colors and a short sleeve option!”
Gerald in Flintridge, CA
“Soft, with a bit of shine, rugged looking but very stylish. Unique find, will treasure this for a long time!!”

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.
