Fabric Info

Fabric Description

Forget everything you thought you knew about wool.

Our merino wool shirts are lightweight, comfortable, and refined, and feature astonishing natural performance. They’re extremely wrinkle and odor resistant, resilient, and an amazing temperature regulator, which means that they’re also super easy to care for, can be worn multiple times between washes, are incredibly durable, and will help keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. It’s very difficult to achieve light colors with merino wool fabric, and the wool masters at Reda have developed this beautiful S120s 2-ply light blue option exclusively for us. It opens up a new world of merino wool styling possibilities. Learn more about our Merino Wool Shirts here.

Recommended Styling:Try it with our President Spread 3 collar for a dressier looking shirt, or one of our soft collars, like our Soft Franklin Spread, for a casual vibe. Either way, go without a placket.

    The fabric is very comfortable, and I sweat less warning merino because it breaths more. The color is brighter / more vibrant in person compared with the photographs. Close to Robbin’s Egg.

    I was disappointed that the color was considerably off from the pictures. This isn’t a light blue but a French blue. So for color it earns 3 stars. You can’t beat the performance and feel of these merino wool shirts. They don’t wrinkle and look great.

    While I realize this is a very Fine cloth, it’s so thin that it really telegraphs more than I like, and I will always have to wear an undershirt with it. The color was more drab of a blue than I expected, and the pattern on the computer image is fairly vivid, but in person it’s not noticeable at all, wouldn’t mind the pattern so much if I liked the color more. I would say that it’s really just my personal pickiness, and not at all the fault of the company. That’s the only downside to not being able to try the shirt on before purchase. With regard to the wrinkle resistance, I’ve washed it once so far and laid flat to dry as suggested, it is extremely wrinkly. I’m going to give it a steam before I wear it, but I suspect I’ll need to iron to get all the sharp creases out. I will definitely keep ordering and trying more fabric options, this is just my honest opinion about this fabric.

    Great wool fabric. Nice and soft and smooth, good upgrade from cotton. For some reason the stitching on my shirt seems to rest on top of the fabric, rather than biting into it like on other shirts. Looks kinda weird but don’t think it’s necessarily this fabrics fault, as I have other Reda wool shirts that aren’t like this.

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.

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?
