Fabric Info

Fabric Description

The ultimate balance of comfort and style.

We worked with one of our favorite Japanese mills to develop this innovative performance knit fabric. Woven from an incredibly stretchy 55% cotton/45% polyester performance blend, this 30s single-ply piqué is our most comfortable casual fabric yet. Its open weave allows for breathability and airflow, and it resists wrinkles and wicks moisture away from the body so you’ll stay cool and look (and feel) as fresh as the moment you put it on. This fine knit is super versatile when it comes to styling, too—go with a full dress shirt, or try a popover front for a sartorial take on the polo. Our saturated black version has beautifully subtle texture and is sure to be a mainstay of your weekend wardrobe.

Recommended Styling: Soft details are the way to go. Our Colorado Button Down collar and a Soft Front placket will say “classic casual”, while our Soft Franklin Spread and no placket offers a clean, minimal look.

FAQs

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).

Or

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 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.
