American Pima Lavender Heavy Oxford
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.

Shirt Style Details
Soft Ivy Button Down Collar
Collar roll. And plenty of it. This decidedly casual collar style is more expressive than most modern button down collars.
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, Rounded 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, and more by customizing this shirt.
A classic heavy oxford made from beautiful American cotton.
Woven with an 80s 2-ply construction, this fabric has a similar heft to our classic heavy oxford but with a slightly different matte finish. Hardy, remarkably soft, and incredibly resilient, American Pima cotton is ideal for oxford shirts and its look and feel only improve with wash and wear. This cool lavender hue is a great way to get a little color into your wardrobe, and it’s one of those oxford colors you don’t often find. It looks effortless whether it’s tucked into chinos under a sport coat or worn untucked with jeans.
Recommended Styling: Try it with our Soft Ivy Button Down collar, Soft Front placket, and Soft One Button cuff for a classic OCBD, or go with the Soft Roma Cutaway collar and no placket for more of a sprezzy Italian vibe. Mother of Pearl buttons add a hint of shine.

“Very sick durable”
Jeff in Plymouth, MI
“i tend to not stray from the conventional shirt colors but the lavender of this shirt is subtle and I really enjoy a slow transition into expanding my color palette.”
Trevor in OMAHA, NE
“Feels exactly as I wanted it to. Slightly heavier than the "normal" linen shirt which is exactly what I was looking for.”
Eric in Huntsville, AL
“Excellent weight and feel. Love the fabric”
Don in Pleasant View, UT
“Love the rougher look.”
Sally in FORT LAUDERDALE, FL
Dave in Stillwater, MN
“A perfect summer Oxford. Couldn’t be happier.”
DArcy in Victoria, British Columbia
“Love proper cloth’s heavy oxfords, and this color is a favorite.”
Paul in Los Angeles, CA
David in TEMPE, AZ
“Slightly smoother and lighter weight than the heavy oxford, so a little dressier. The colour is beautiful. Leans towards a subdued blue-lavender.”
Peter in South Hobart, TAS
“Just received the shirt. Will need time to decide long term wear, etc.”
Michael in Baldwinsville, NY
“Very nice fabric and great service”
Chris in MINNEAPOLIS, MN
“great color solid heavyweight fabric”
GLEN in Dallas, TX
“The thick texture is a great help on a cold day.”
Juan in Chicago, IL
“feels great, looks good. one of my favourites”
Matthias in Kontich, Antwerp
“Beautiful color and soft. Shrank more in the wash than anticipated.”
James in Chicago, IL
“Soft, strong and beautiful.”
Gene in Houston, TX
“Nothing bad to say about this fabric. It’s on the thicker side, so perfect for colder months. Color is very nice, the images here do it justice. Also very easy to iron compared with other fabrics such as broadcloths.”
Alexandre in Candiac, Quebec
“Love this shirt. Super nice. I don’t care for all the non-iron fabric. I like a nice cotton shirt.”
Foster in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Greg in GREENWOOD, IN
No, would not recommend
“not heavy enough. poor fit.”
terry in LAFAYETTE, LA
“A bit more sheen than I expected.”
John in Granger, IN
“I have a couple of other shirts with this fabric in other colors, and they’re universally solid performers. They hold up great, get softer over time, look good, and don’t need ironing (although sometimes the hem rolls a little out of the dryer). The first time I wore this I spilled some Indian food with turmeric on… it. I had to use some heavy-duty stain remover over a couple of washes, but it came through great -- very sturdy and colorfast. The color itself is really nice, goes great with black jeans, but I don’t like it as much with blue jeans.”
Andrew in Menlo Park, CA
“This color is vibrant and the fabric feels great!”
Henry in BLUFFTON, SC
“Great fabric for a button down”
Joshua in Upper Saint Clair, PA
“Great pima cotton in a true Oxford fabric. Would love five or more of these in a few basic colors. So wearable.”
Thomas in NEW ORLEANS, LA
“Great material, comfortable. Perfect with or without a jacket. Can be dressed up or down.”
Alan in Roseville, CA
“Great color and very comfortable fabric”
John in BATON ROUGE, LA
“Pairs well with most menswear staples -- just treat it like a blue OCBD. Great way to try out an unusual color.”
Thomas in CINCINNATI, OH
“This is my husband’s third shirt in this fabric. Excellent quality and weight.”
Pia in Woodbridge, CT
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 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.
