Reda Slate Melange Merino Wool
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.

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. Woven by the wool masters at Reda, this beautiful S120s 2-ply slate melange can be worn casually or dressed up. Learn more about our Merino Wool Shirts here.

Gloria in CHAPEL HILL, NC

Michael in Orleans, Ontario
“98% there on the color. I thought is would be more slate, or more gray-ish, than as blue as it is. Again, great color, but much closer to the Navy one than I thought. Feel of fabric is unreal, supper soft and really easy to care for.”

jon in Saratoga Springs, NY
“Amazing fabric and feel. Totally unique.”
Jared in New York, NY
“This was my first Merino Wool dress shirt, and I’m now a believer! I’m switching all of my non-white shirts to Merino Wool - the fabric is extremely comfortable, and practically cares for itself - no ironing needed. I’ve worn it on warmer and cooler days, and it truly does regulate temperature quite well. Only 2 …things to note - being wool, it’s more susceptible to static than cotton (but wasn’t bad by any means, just stuck a bit to my back for a few minutes after sitting in the car for a while); the other is that it does have a lanolin smell when wet. This has decreased after the first wash, and seems to be getting better over time.”
Neal in HOUSTON, TX
“Nice fabric. Will have to see how it holds up with use.”
CJ in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
“The drape and fit of these shirts is superb. More please, would like one in burgandy”

Jamie in New York, NY
“I think this is a great value. I love the quality of the fabric; it has the durability of no-iron fabric without the inexpensive feel. Very substantial cloth. Material is not quite as comfortable as I would like (but it’s not uncomfortable either - it is wool after all). I enjoy several of these shirts.”
Caleb in Granite Bay, CA
“Very lightweight but could be a little softer. I find it scratchy at times.”
David in Phila, PA

Michael in KENT, WA
“Great flannel shirt”
Thomas in Newport, KY
jeramy in Harbor City, CA
“This is quite surprising for a woven fabric. It is exceptionally comfortable and flowy. It does pick up wrinkles, but a quick spray with a small spray bottle and the wrinkles come right out (though some of this has to do with me living in a desert).”
Christopher in TUCSON, AZ
“Very comfortable and lays great. Just a beautiful fabric. Color is as pictured.”
Stephen in Livingston, NJ

Neil in Fort St. John, BC
“I never received this shirt so I cannot rate this fabric”

Ryan in Summer Hill, NSW
“Merino wool is amazing!”
James in Boonton, NJ
“I held off on buying this shirt because it’s so expensive. But I wish all of my shirts were Merino Wool. One of these is the equivalent of at least two cotton shirts. They don’t wrinkle. Don’t smell. Don’t shrink. And breath and wear great. Best shirt I own.”
Noel in Pacific Palisades, CA
“Wow! This material is really gorgeous. I have more than 20 proper cloth shirts, and I have to say that this is one of the best I have ever purchased from them. It hangs perfectly it looks so great as a super casual work shirt (unbuttoned over a black gym shirt), or buttoned and tucked more formally. Totally worth the f…ew extra dollars for the material.”

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 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.
