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.

The perfect summer knit.
This 30s single-ply knit is an unbelievably soft and beautifully textured take on the timeless polo shirt fabric we all know and love. Crafted from a blend of 77% cotton and 23% linen, it’s naturally breathable, absorbent, cool to the touch, and surprisingly stretchy—everything we could ask for in a warm-weather knit. This fabric has a tiny geometric open knit structure that adds to both its breathability and casual appeal. A luxe alternative to your sportier polo shirts, it has a definite relaxed-yet-refined vibe. The melange beige is dotted with what looks like delicate waves of slightly darker and lighter beige tones, almost like an abstract sandy beach. It’s a beautiful neautral alternative to a white polo in your weekend wardrobe.
Recommended Styling: We prefer it with soft details. Our Soft English Spread collar and One Button or Two Button Polo front make a great classic long or short sleeve polo shirt. A Camp collar is also a great option. Mother of Pearl buttons with play more to the luxe side of this fabric.

“Light shirt for summertime elegance”
Amish in Mechanicsville, MD
“This fabric is incredibly soft on the skin! Like butter.”
Steven in BROOKLYN, NY
“This knit requires a touch up with an iron after coming out of the laundry room. I do love the weight and drape of this fabric in warm weather.”
Brian in Buffalo, WY
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 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.
