Fabric Info

Fabric Description

In our minds, there's no situation in which you can't wear an oxford cloth button down (OCBD). There are times, however, when a pure cotton oxford wears a bit too warm. Our solution: the cotton and linen oxford.

This 55% cotton/45% linen blend we developed with our favorite Portuguese mill breathes incredibly well while retaining the substantial feel of a classic oxford weave. The fabric has a bit of slub from the linen which gives it beautiful texture and character, and it’s more durable and opaque than most cotton/linen blends, too. Expect it to age phenomenally and become your go-to warm weather shirt. This beautifully varied navy is incredibly versatile—pair it with everything from chinos or shorts to an unlined sport coat.

Recommended Styling: Go with our Soft Ivy Button Down collar for a classic oxford look, or our Soft Franklin Spread for a more modern vibe. We prefer to go with an elevated no-placket design.

    I like the colour when it arrived - great fabric for a casual shirt. It shrinks a bit when washed and would size up more than cotton shirts.

    Really one of the few shirts from Proper Cloth I just haven’t liked. I like chambray, which is what it looks like; but the sort of melange quality of the coloring isn’t great in my opinion.

    I have several of these Portuguese cotton linen oxfords. I love how they bridge the gap between formal and casual. A bit of extra wrinkle because of the linen but I love the extra character. They’re also perfect for hot humid Hong Kong summers. The darker color in this one really emphasizes the mélange and slub in the fabric which adds even more character. The soft Roma button down collar is perfect for a longer neck.

    The Portuguese cotton linen is by far the best linen material. The material is heavy, structured, but still airy as you would expect with a linen.

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.
