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.
Soft Front Placket, No Pocket
Great for casual shirts. A soft, unfused front placket makes for a relaxed 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.
Change any of these shirt details, add a monogram, chest pocket, and more by customizing this shirt.
A totally unique quality that looks and feels almost like a knit.
This piqué weave—woven just for us in Italy by the family-owned mill Grandi & Rubinelli—is what the Italians call “nido d’ape,” or “bee’s nest waffle.” It has a beautifully textured geometric structure that, along with its fine slub, subtle shine, and gentle drape, makes for a visually interesting and flattering solid shirt. A lightweight and breathable medium-weight 70s 2-ply fabric, it’s perfect for both a weekend at the beach and year-round wear. This timeless blood orange and white Bengal stripe—typically seen on business shirts—gives a fun twist to this relaxed casual fabric. And you can dress it up with navy trousers just as easily as you can throw it on with shorts.
Recommended Styling: Stick with soft details. Try our Soft Roma Cutaway collar, no placket, and Soft Long One Button cuffs for a sprezzy and versatile shirt.

“Great fabric and something different to wear”

“I like the fabric - I could probably do without the little circles though, a straight option might be nice”

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 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.
