Fabric Info

Fabric Description

A lightweight and rustic cotton plain weave woven by casual-fabric masters in Japan.

This hardy yet breathable 10s single-ply gauze weave is a unique casual fabric for spring and summer. Softer and more wrinkle resistant than linen, it’s made from 100% cotton and features an open structure that allows for more air flow through the fabric. This dusty shade of navy blue is given extra dimension by the subtle tonal variations throughout the weave for a relaxed look that reflects the feel of the fabric. Try it as a short sleeve shirt with navy shorts and white sneakers.

Recommended Styling: Choose soft details for this one. Our Camp collar and front make a laidback look that’s at home in the city or on a tropical getaway, or go Western with our Soft Point collar, Western Flap pockets, Western Front placket, and Slate Horn buttons.

    Japanese Washed Navy Slub Weave PCF3344: This fabric is heavier than the description on the website might indicate. I find it perfect for autumn/winter casual wear. The subtle color variations and fabric texture give the fabric more interest than a simple solid cloth color. I’ve worn this shirt for casual occasions (tie-less, so far)—it’s probably a little too "rough-hewn" for stricter business/office wear.

    Looks fantastic and nice and light. I haven’t washed yet but I’m certain this will subject to shrinking. On this note my shirt was quite undersized which I’m sure was some sort of post-cutting washing. I suspect this would think quite a bit so think about sizing up.

    I rolled the dice a bit on this fabric but I don’t regret it a bit. I travel to India quite a bit for work, which is why I chose it. The color and pattern is gorgeous and the weight is ideal for muggy hot tropical weather. It’s very comfortable to wear. My main concern was the weight in terms of the drape. I’m a big guy, with the middle-age belly to prove it - I’m built like a football lineman, so the drape for a short sleeve untucked shirt is important, so it doesn’t sag/stick in the wrong places. I would have added a standard placket to the shirt, but it’s unavailable in this material due to the weight. The drape/structure is 80% of what I would want with the soft placket, and while I still can wear the shirt confidently, it hangs a little baggy compared to some of the other shirts I got in the same cut. The material does wrinkle a bit compared to cotton poplin, but it’s nowhere near as bad as a comparable weight in summer linen. It will definitely be at the top of the pile when I pack for travel to India.

    Lovely texture and much softer than you might imagine given the texture. Mine have been through three wash cycles, I dry on low heat for 20 min then hang dry to finish. Wrinkling is very low and I’m surprised that they didn’t seem to shrink at all when previous fabrics I’ve had similar to this shrank quite a bit. As such, my sleeve lengths are a bit too long.

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 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.

Still have a question? Get in touch

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.
