Mercer Black Broadcloth Tuxedo Front Plain
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.
Rounded French Cuff
The go-to choice for tuxedo shirts. This crisp, fused cuff has a rounded corner on the back edge nearest to the wrist. Requires cufflinks.
Tuxedo Front Plain, No Pocket
Similar to the French front in look, but the top four buttons are removable in order to be replaced with tuxedo studs. Meant for formalwear only.
Black Buttons i
Made from strong, black resin, these go well with dark navy or black shirt designs.
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.
Our popular Mercer broadcloth quality gets an update in a new black colorway. For those who worry about the color of black fabrics fading, this one was specifically designed to hold its color incredibly well. The 100s 2-ply construction gives it the durability of a double twisted yarn with that silky hand-feel that makes broadcloths so great. A great pick for our President Spread collar, which is very versatile and stands up nicely.
Plain Tuxedo Front Details
The Plain Tuxedo Front is identical to a French Front, with the exception that the top four buttons can be removed and substituted with tuxedo studs, sold separately.
The removable buttons are smaller than normal buttons, and are attached together on a strip of fabric. It is possible to wear the shirt using the removable buttons, but is not recommended.

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 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.
