Blue University Stripe 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 Wide Front Placket, Rounded Pocket
A traditional take on the casual soft placket. The wider 1.5" unfused front makes for a perfect 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.
Every man should own an oxford shirt. Comfortable, hard-wearing, and incredibly versatile, oxfords are an absolute wardrobe staple. Our heavy oxfords have just the right amount of heft to them—they’re woven with a 40/1 x 21/2 construction for a fabric that feels substantial, but not overly thick. They’re also highly resilient, meaning they’ll last for years and only get better the more they’re washed and worn. You can dress an oxford up under a sport coat or dress it down with your favorite pair of jeans. It’s one of the few fabrics that can just as easily be worn with a tie as it can be worn rumpled and untucked. Our blue university stripe heavy oxford is is as timeless and easy to wear as it gets. Try it with our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar, Soft Front Placket, and a Soft One-Button Cuff for a classic oxford cloth button down (OCBD), or go with one of our soft spread collars for more of a sprezzy Italian vibe.

“I am used to heavy weight fabrics, but this felt a bit more like cardboard on the skin, despite two washes. Perhaps, it will soften with time.”

David in Severance, CO
“This was the first Proper Cloth fabric I really disliked, and I’ve ordered more than 10 different fabrics in the past. I know that it’s labeled as a heavy oxford, but the material is so thick and stiff. It almost feels like I’m wearing a shirt stiffened with wax or something. The fabric also feels super rough and… is not comfortable on the skin at all. The collar area is extra thick and is almost like cardboard. I like the color and pattern, so I was really disappointed at the shirt material.”
Howie in SAN FRANCISCO, CA
“Nice hearty fabric. Would be great to have university stripes in more colours.”
Jason in Brisbane, Milton

Tommi in Helsinki, Helsinki
“I use this shirt for a casual “work” shirt, where I’m not at an office, but out doing errands, visiting, etc. I still look good, and professional. The fabric is strong, has heft. You can still dress it up with a tie, but I have an order in for “silkier/smoother” fabric for more “dressy” occasions.”
Stuart in GREAT FALLS, MT

Michael in SAN ANTONIO, TX
“stiff but comfortable”
Stephen in New York, NY
“Classic OCBD fabric. Solid. Does exactly what you would hope it would do. Just the right thickness and body.”
Theron in Singapore,
“Fantastic look & feel.”
Christian in Paderborn, Northrhine-Westphalia
“Absolute classic. The blue stripes pop against a crisp white without being too "harsh" or bold. This fabric epitomizes the iconic trad/prep look. The collar roll (when cut for a shirt with a button-down collar) is prominent without looking obnoxious.”
Joshua in CHICAGO, IL
“Looks and feels good”

“Perfect classic. Structured feel.”
Paul in Phila, PA
“Heavy fabric. Perfect for colder months.”
Nicolas in Toronto, Ontario
“Very nice heavy duty oxford fabric with no opacity. Stiff at first, but began to conform to my body shape after a few hours of wear. Great casual shirt that I anticipate will only get better with a couple washes.”
Joshua in Boston, MA
Julius in Berlin,
“This is my go-to OCBD fabric. While heavy, it’s still soft and classic after a few washes. I prefer it at the price over paying 40% or more for the higher end oxford cloths.”
James in Saylorsburg, PA
“The fabric, weave and weight is great. The blue stripe is not as bright as the photos suggest. The blue is more "washed out" in real life.”
Daniel in Brisbane, Queensland
“The heavy Oxford continues to scratch my trad itches. Exactly what I wanted, exactly what I expected.”
Chris in Addlestone, Surrey
“Heavy fabric, good weave”
Tyler in ATLANTA, GA

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.
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.
