When most guys think of wool shirts, they think of itchy, heavyweight flannels for the wintertime. Our merino wool shirts are something entirely different. They’re made using an innovative wool shirting fabric woven by Reda in Italy. This S120s 2-ply Australian merino wool is incredibly fine at 17.5 micron, completely machine washable, and has natural stretch. By its nature, merino wool is more resistant to wrinkles and odors, is more resilient, and is better at regulating temperature than cotton is. This means that our 100% merino wool shirts are easy to care for, can be worn multiple times without picking up body odors, are incredibly durable, and will help keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. Learn more about our Merino Wool Shirts here.
This beautiful grey merino has incredible color variation and depth with just a touch of sheen. Try it with our President Spread collar for a dressier looking shirt or one of our soft collars for a casual vibe.

“Love the texture and depth of this shirt. Washes very well and never gets smelly due to the 100% merino. Very light weight, can definitely be worn through the summer.”
Jeremy in Garnet Valley, PA

Zac in STERLING, VA
“Never thought melange patterns would work so well on casual shirts!”
Ryota in Meguro City, Tokyo
“Reda Merino Wool continues to be the ideal fabric for me. Great opacity, but still lightweight - due to its construction, it works well in cooler environments and keeps me warm, while its breathability helps keep me cool in warmer environments. Drapes nicely and looks great.”
Neal in HOUSTON, TX
“This is a definite upgrade over cotton for a dress shirt, and in my opinion well worth the price premium.”
Patrick in Hoover, AL
Douglas in Houston, TX

“I love the way this fabric drapes and feels.”
Scott in San Diego, CA
“Love merino. Requires special washing instructions.”
Kevin in Auckland,
“Color turned out fantastic, and the material feels wonderful. You can tell that it is a higher quality when you see and feel the fabric.”
John in Liberty Township, OH
“I love these Merino wool shirts. I have 5 and will be purchasing more. They need to add more options as I am running out of fabric choices!! I wash on gentle, dry on gentle and they come out of the dryer perfect every time. No wrinkles at all and they do not wrinkle during the day. Plus the benefit of wool is you …do not have to wash the shirt every time you wear it. The fabric is thin so I am hoping these shirts hold up over the long term. So far no issues.”
Kevin in New Boston, NH
Pavlo in Mainz,
“Lighter color than it appears! Beware if you think it’s somewhere between light and dark. It’s pretty light. As per the name, I suppose!”

Grant in Tokyo,
“The merino wool collection is the best. This light grey fabric looks and feels great.”

Ryan in DENVER, CO
Mufaddal in Porter Ranch, CA
“I love this color of this.”
Bob in Miami, FL
“This shirt is more of a dress shirt than I expected, and feels a bit thin and rigid to me. The overall look is polished, buttoned-down, and sort of unremarkable otherwise. The shirt is probably best paired with a sweater, coat, or tie rather than as a stand-alone shirt.”
Dan in Seattle, WA
“Excellent for tropical weight uses. I will wear this in Honolulu for workdays in the office .”
John Robert in Honolulu, HI
“The pattern and texture helps this fabric straddle the line between more casual and more formal. The color is a good neutral that pairs well with pretty much anything and the pattern and texture make it more interesting than a solid, gray shirt.”
Frederick in Seattle, WA
“Care of the fabric is tricky, but the feel is worth it.”
Richard in Harrisburg, PA
Merredith in MIAMI, FL
“At first I was concerned about the cost; $175 for a dress shirt is steep. But I got it in a soft president spread collar with rounded double-button cuffs so I can style it dressed up or dressed down. The texture and color is unparalleled. If you want a grey shirt, look no further.”
Jonathon in IRVINE, CA
“Love this light weight wool. A great alternative to cotton. Looks super sharp under a blazer or sport coat, nice and crisp.”
MICHAEL in PHILA, PA

Pieter in Winksele, Flemish Region

Andrew in SAN JOSE, CA
“I really wanted to love this Light Grey Melange Merino Wool to wear during summer, but once I start to sweat a little it just doesn’t feel great on my skin as Oxford or other cotton fabrics”
Michael in NEW YORK, NY
“Great quality, nothing is better than merino wool!!”
Markus in Oberdorf SO, SO
Joshua in Omaha, NE
“Looks great, comfortable, light, breathable, great luxurious color. But the smell of the merino wool after wash or when sweating, could not handle it so returned it. Also, when sweating, it’s not a gradual sweat look like other shirts show but it’s like water streaks down the shirt which I didn’t like.”
John in LOS ANGELES, CA
“Nice winter fabric. Reda wool is great.”
Stephen H B in LeClaire, IA
“Thus far, has lived up to its billing. Really like the light grey color.”

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.
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.
