Light Blue Bengal Stripe Linen
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 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.
A relaxed take on a classic business bengal stripe. Linen has an airy, open weave that breathes incredibly well, and its naturally cool feel and ability to keep you dry make it a summer essential if there ever was one. Its uniquely slubby texture gives it character and provides visual interest whether it's solid or patterned. Keep in mind that linen’s wrinkle-prone nature is part of its charm; don't worry about pressing it—just let it look well-worn and relaxed. The clean look of the evenly spaced white and light blue bengal stripes creates a beautiful contrast to the summery feel of the linen. This light blue has a slightly faded, heathered effect that lends itself well to warmer weather.
Recommended Styling: Go with soft details all around—our Soft President Spread collar or Soft Ivy Button Down collar, no placket, and Soft Long One Button cuff make a fool-proof combination.

“Excellent fabric for summer”

“as a bigger guy, it is perfect to stay cool”

“Beautiful linen fabric, definitely casual wearing, this is not something to try to dress up. I went with band collar.”
Peter in Danbury, CT
Kurt H. in CHARLESTON, SC
“Fabric is a very comfortable linen that is not see through. Stripes are a good width and a nice, subtle color. Perfect summer shirt.”
Josh in WASHINGTON, DC
“Looks great but being linen does require work to iron and won’t stay without creases but that’s part of the charm”
Simeon in Glasgow,
“Gorgeous, east coast preppy personified”
Jesse in New York, NY
“Beautiful linen fabric; wrinkles easily (which is typical of linen), but the design is as good as it gets. Would be again.”
Jin in Brooklyn, NY
“Lightweight and pretty see through. would recommend not getting it with pockets due to opacity difference with rest of shirt”
John in Singapore,
“Transparent and summery”
Brian in Los Angeles, CA

Gregory in Maplewood, NJ
Roberto in CORAL GABLES, FL
Gregory in Clovis, CA
“This fabric is delicious. A perfect companion after the beach. Just enough jazz in the blue to make it eye catching but not overstated. It whispers that you know where the Amalfi coast is because you’ve been there.”
Anthony in AUSTIN, TX
“This one needs to be laundered professionally but is a quality fabric and look so nice.”
Richard in San Francisco, CA

Hugo in Macau, Macau
“Great summer fabric.”
Ganesh in South Yarra, Victoria
“Summer must have.”
Chengchi in Hong Kong, Hong Kong
“In the area of opacity, I like its sheerness. So I voted for OPACITY above, but my meaning is, it’s not opaque nor is it wrinkle resistant, which are both enduring qualities of linen, as is durability, too, but in this case, the fabric is true to its fiber.”
Caro Louise in ESCONDIDO, CA
“Love this shirt. The stripes are the perfect width, not to businessy slim, but not too ostentatiously wide. This is one of the lightest weight linens offered by Proper Cloth. Highly recommend.”
James in BIRMINGHAM, AL
“One of my favorite linens so far, very thin and comfortable on really hot days. Love the blue stripes and texture to it also”
Riley in New York, NY
“it’s very soft”
Coleman in Brooklyn, NY
“Great fabric. Colors are subtle, but size of pattern keeps it from being bland.”
Dylan in New York, NY
“I love the fabric, but not how it performed. The 100% linen expands a lot and leaves me with a shirt that is too blousy, and with sleeves that are too long. I now know that I need to size down this fabric, when ordering again, or a similar 100% linen fabric. Gem, with whom I had my virtual visit explained this, which w…as very helpful.”
Henry in Scottsdale, AZ
Rahul in Hong Kong,
“It is ok, but would like to see more linen fabrics in different colors.”
Gene in Birmingham, MI
“The blue is subtle, which really compliments the fabric.”

Madhu in Irving, TX

Landon in NORWALK, CT
“Very light shirt. Almost too transparent for anything other than casual use.”
Christopher in PORTLAND, OR

Joshua in Half Moon Bay, CA

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.
