Ludlow Slate Melange Brushed 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
Soft Franklin Spread Collar
A casual spread collar of smaller proportions in a soft, unfused construction.
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, Angled Pocket
Great for casual shirts. A soft, unfused front placket makes for a relaxed look.
Slate Horn Buttons i
Unique slate blue button that pairs well with dark, casual fabrics. Made from a durable faux-horn.
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.
A refined and cozy twill for versatile casual dressing.
This medium-weight 100% cotton twill is brushed for a soft finish that adds another dimension of style and functionality. Brushing gives the 32s single-ply weave extra warmth and creates a fuzzy effect similar to flannel. This is the perfect fabric for an elevated workwear look, or a more casual tailored look—it’ll make a t-shirt and jeans seem more thoughtful, and will provide a nice relaxed contrast to dressier trousers. This slate melange is one of those great colors that works seamlessly with all of your greys and blues.
Recommended Styling: Soft details are the way to go. For a more traditional workwear style try our Soft Point collar, Soft Front placket, Soft Square Two Button cuff, and Brown Snap buttons. For something more contemporary and minimal, our Soft English Spread collar, no placket, and Soft One Button cuff will do the trick.

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 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.
