Ordering Fabric Samples

How to order shirt fabric samples from Proper Cloth

We try our best to make our shirt fabric photographs and descriptions communicate the true essence of a fabric, but sometimes you just have to see the fabric in person to really know what it’s like. With that in mind, we’ve made it easy to request samples of any shirt fabric.

Just browse through our fabrics, click on the fabric you like and then click “ORDER FABRIC SAMPLE” to add it to your cart.

The charge for fabric samples is $1 each, and the site will allow you to order up to six at one time. Note that we will credit your account $1 for every fabric sample you purchase, so they are in effect free after you make your first shirt purchase. If you want to order more than six fabric samples at one time, you’ll have to complete your checkout more than once.

Fabric samples will be sent from our headquarters in New York via US Postal Service, so you can expect delivery to US addresses typically within a week. For international delivery, the speed can vary a bit more.

Samples are not available for all shirt fabrics

Fabric samples can take a few weeks to be produced and shipped to our fulfillment center from our tailoring workshops. For this reason, samples may not be available until a few weeks after new fabrics are added to the site.

Further, certain limited edition fabric types or those with complicated finishing processes (washed indigo, garment dyed, enzyme washed, etc) may not be available for fabric samples.

Samples are not available for pant and jacket fabrics

Currently, fabric samples are not available for our custom pant and jacket products.
