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 bought the untucked version and it goes great with a pair of nice jeans for a stylish, but casual look. The material is breathable and comfortable.”
Kelly in CASTLE ROCK, CO
“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.”
Alexander in Palmerston North, Manawatu
“Fabric looks great and shirt fit well”
John in Atlanta, GA
“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.”
Thomas in NEW ORLEANS, LA
“really cool subtle pattern and nice hand to the fabric”
Nicolas in Houston, TX
“darker with a more contrasting pattern than appeared in photos but still nice”
GLEN in Dallas, TX
“Holy stromboli this fabric is beautiful - why doesn’t everyone sell linen/cotton oxford cloth?”
Ian in Pittsburgh, PA
“Fells fine; unable to wear because of the terrible fit.”
Steven in NEWBURY PARK, CA
“Beautiful shirt with a casual, rough look. Goes well with dark buttons. I experienced greater than average shrinkage in the wash with this one.”
Andrew in Cambridge, MA
“It’s a nicely textured fabric and the pattern is subtle but sophisticated.”
Subhabrata in OAKLAND, CA
“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 t…he fabric which adds even more character. The soft Roma button down collar is perfect for a longer neck.”
Theron in Singapore,
“the most formal and conservative of the 4 shirt fabrics I ordered. I like the thicker texture for days that are cooler than 75 degrees.”
Robin in San Luis Obispo, CA
“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.”
Jonathon in IRVINE, CA
“The fabric has a very nice feel and texture to it. Seems a bit stiff but I believe it will get softer after a few launderings.”
Valentin in Warren, NJ
“the fabric is extremely comfortable”
derek in OAKLAND, CA
“Not terribly wrinkle resistant but shouldn’t be considering Linen content.”
john in Chagrin Falls, OH
“I liked the ’stretchyness" of the fabric and the light weight of it as well. The pattern is also terrific!”
Skip in Knoxville, TN
Whalen in ALBUQUERQUE, NM
“Cotton linen mix makes for a great resilent cloth with just a smidge of sheen if you iron it, so it can dress up or down.”
Scott in Fort Sill, OK
“Awesome color, looks great with dark jeans or navy pants. Great shirt for warmer months.”
Pedram in GREAT NECK, NY
“Fabric looks great but may fit a little more snug as it has no stretch.”
Daniel in Dallas, TX
“The fabric is exactly what you want from a linen shirt. It’s breathable, cool, and comfortable. It actually wrinkles less than I was anticipating, which is amazing.”
Henry in Clifton,
“Beautiful fabric with a great drape.”
Brian in Framingham, MA
“Great feeling fabric, very nice”
Tim in New York, NY
“Fit was a little snug.”
Ky in San Jose, CA
“This is a nice shirt, but probably not one that I would recommend to others. It is a little bit darker and less soft than other that I’ve purchased from Proper Cloth that I love. While it is a nice shirt, I would not recommend this color to friends.”
Michael in Hinsdale, IL
“Comfortable and breathable”
Brett in LAS VEGAS, NV
“Comfortable, wrinkles easily”
Chris in Amelia Island, FL
“Good look and beautiful, blue pigment. Compared to linen shirts, this one fits snug and shows slim fit. If I have a big breakfast or am off my diet, it can feel tight. But it looks great when I’m on my regular exercise routine.”
Keith in Washington, DC
“stains on fabric”
Gregory in Century, FL
“A little rougher than I expected initially, but I think it should soften up after a couple of launderings”
Heflin in TAMPA, FL
“I was extremely pleased with this purchase.”
Brian in BETHESDA, MD
“One of the best fabrics PC sells, and I have it in many colors now (including this Navy).”
Christopher in Annapolis, MD
“The fabric is just a tad scratchy - barely enough to merit mention though. It wrinkles very easily as well. The color is awesome.”
Darryl in West Somerville, MA
“Liked the colour on this shirt, but was amiss in my measurements and now my brother really likes it.”

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.
