Lafayette White Twill
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
President Spread Collar
Our new and improved version of our most popular collar. We designed this to be a truly premium modern spread collar with timeless proportions.
Long One Button Cuff
A slightly longer version of our one button barrel cuff. Fused. Great for for guys with longer arms.
No Placket, No Pocket
The front of the shirt simply folds back on itself for a cleaner yet less structured 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.
A luxurious twill that's perfect for the office or a big event.
The white shirt is the keystone of your closet, and this one is an incredible value. Woven with a soft 80s 2-ply fine twill construction, it has a very subtle bit of shine that increases the vibrant white color. Because the weave is fine, it appears totally clean and without texture from a distance, and the twill weave allows it to drape better than a plain weave would. Perfect for a President Spread collar and a rounded two-button cuff for the office, or a French cuff if you plan to wear it more formally.

JOSHUA in Pewaukee, WI
“The shirts are a nice fabric, but the fit is strange, and not because of measurements/size. The collars are very large and the front of the collar when buttoned and wearing a tie hangs too low. Shirts seem to be designed to wear without a tie and without top button buttoned.”

“Great feel and thickness for a dress formal shirt, ensuring that this should be a durable item for a long time. Would recommend this fabric in various forms and styling.”
Joe in NEW YORK, NY
Jim in Los Angeles, CA
“Great, lightweight and breaths. Love the feel, perhaps a double layer for the collar would help the style and form remain of the highest quality. Notice after a couple dry cleanings, the buttons show through at the bottom of the collar, same goes for the wear. Once the day comes to an end. The collar gives and becomes… wrinkled”
Carlos in Peyton, CO
“Stock standard white - thick gauge fabric”
Adam in Wellington, Wellington
“Very high quality!”

Joseph in Dumont, NJ
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.
