Shirt Style Details
Soft Roma Spread Collar
A relaxed take on our tall spread collar with points that tuck under jacket lapels very well.
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.
Woven and indigo dyed chambray is the real deal.
The slightly uneven weave gives this light indigo chambray incredible visual texture. The indigo dye will also fade out over time, meaning this shirt gets better the more you wear it. Since this fabric is woven with an indigo-dyed thread in the warp and white thread in the weft, out of the box it appears somewhat dark, but after washing the indigo deposits on the white thread, giving the shirt a softer, more even blue tone. As such, only wash with like colors. It will also soften up and break in significantly after the first wash, like the classic chambray shirt you‘ve always wanted.
Recommended Styling: Definitely go with a soft collar, cuff and placket on this one; our Soft President Spread collar gives it a Western shirt vibe, or go for a Colorado Button Down for a solid casual look.

“I Love this fabric. This fabric is a good color and design and ordering a larger size helps to fit my covid lockdown fattened body.”
Marc in Dumfries, VA
“A nice fabric, but it has shrunk a lot more than others I’ve ordered.”

“I like this shirt, but overall preferred the Japanese Indigo Chambray (which I also have). This one feels lighter-weight, and the colour is a bit ‘warmer‘.”

Jonathan in Cave Creek, AZ
Kurt H. in CHARLESTON, SC

Michael in O Fallon, MO
“One of my favorite shirts”
Alekandr in Budd Lake, NJ
“Medium weight chambray and very soft.”
bob in Cary, NC
“Appears to be a durable fabric. More structured than the Japanese Light Indigo Slub Chambray from 2020 so I expect it to hold up over time. Versatile enough that you could wear with a tie and/or suit jacket.”
Matt in Valley, NS

Jason in Phila, PA
“Perfect to pair with khakis, jeans, or five pocket casual slacks.”

Mark in Saint Charles, IL
“Nice fabric that I made into a more business casual shirt. I think the fabric runs large. I sent it out to be professionally cleaned and it was large. After washing it in warm myself it shrunk to the perfect size. Just something to consider. I took PC recommended Presidental Button Down Collar. I love this collar for b…usiness or if you think you will wear a blazer.”

James in Brewster, NY
Dimitrios in NEWARK, NJ
“Fabric fades to fast. I’d like a chambray fabric that is more resistant to fading. My 15 dollar Amazon chambray shirt. Still looks good after one year of hard wearing. The proper cloth one has a faded collar after 5 wears.”
Dirk in Enschede, Overijssel
“Great chambray -- would recommend in more casual cuts.”
Liam in LONDON,
“Solid, performance fabric for casual wear.”

William in MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Cameron in WASHINGTON, DC
“Soft with a little stretch and feels like a hug! I styled my shirt to be more business casual but I just want to wear this fabric around the house too. I styled with with the soft president collar but the side that doesn’t have the placket tends to fall down more than the other side so it’s a little unbalanced. I t…hink I would have preferred non soft collar and normal fused placket for business casual.”
Kirk in ROSEVILLE, CA

“Every person should have a Proper Cloth Blue Indigo Chambray shirt.”
Jin in Brooklyn, NY
“This shirt’s color didn’t quite work for me. I found it a little flat, but it’s a chambray - so it’s probably about what you would expect!”
Lyle in NASHVILLE, TN
“The fabric is just as described. It’s thicker than some other chambrays, but still soft and drapes well.”
John in BALTIMORE, MD
“Wonderful casual fabric. Resists wrinkles. Looks good with the sleeves rolled up.”
Andrew in London, ON
“Great shirt, but wish I upgraded to mother of pearl buttons.”
Konstantin in New York, NY
“Soft and comfortable everyday fabric. This shirt can be washed or dry cleaned and have two totally different looks. I’m very happy with my purchase.”

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.
