Select Jacket Size
Jacket Size (US Sizing) i

This is your base size. Note that we use US sizing (so for example a size 36 ~Small, a size 38 ~Medium, and sizes 40-42 ~Large. For those used to European sizing, subtract 10 from your normal size (i.e., an EU size 50 generally corresponds to an American size 40).

Length i

Long jackets measure 1 3/16" longer in the sleeve length and body length than Regular jackets, while Short jackets measure 1 3/16" shorter in the sleeve length and body length than Regular.

Fit i

Extra Slim is a “Drop 9” fit and extremely trim around the waist. This is suggested for more muscular men with large shoulders and particularly slim waists that want a very tailored fit.

Slim is a “Drop 8” fit and our standard slim fit. It's the same fit as our standard size Hudson jackets and suggested for guys in good shape that want a trim fit.

Classic is a “Drop 6” fit and a more generous, boxy cut. It has more room around the waist and is intended for guys with larger midsections.

Select Dress Pants Size
Dress Pants Waist i

Select the waist size you normally buy your pants in. Note that the actual circumference of the waist (that will show in the size chart) will be larger than the selected size, as this is normal for pants sizing.

Dress Pants Inseam i

Select the normal inseam length you would buy your pants in. The inseam length is the distance from the bottom of the crotch of the pants to the end of the leg opening.

Fit i

Extra Slim is our slimmest fit around the hips and thighs, with a distinct taper from the thigh down to a narrow leg opening. Suggested for guys that are either particularly skinny, or more average sized but want an aggressive slim fit.

Slim is our modern, office appropriate, most popular, slim fit. Slim but not tight with a taper to the leg opening. Suggested for average sized guys that want a clean modern look that’s not too tight.

Straight is similar to our Slim fit, but with less taper at the leg opening for a wider “boot cut”. Suggested for guys that want a relatively slim fit, but a leg opening that will cover more of their shoes, or fit over their boots.

Athletic is roomy in the seat and thighs, but tapered to the knee and leg opening. Designed for guys with larger thighs and buttocks relative to a smaller waist. If you’re an athlete that wants a modern slim fit, but “Slim Fit” pants are generally too tight around your legs, this is for you.

Classic is roomy in the seat and thigh with a leg that stays straight from the mid thigh down. Suggested for guys that want a more old-fashioned, roomy fit and a leg opening that will cover more of their shoe.

Detail of VBC S110's Wool Fabric

VBC S110's Wool Fabric

The beautiful charcoal suiting fabric is from Italy\'s renowned Vitale Barberis Canonico mill. It\'s a four-season 270g twill, woven with S110\'s yarns with a luxuriously smooth feel. VBC has become one of the leaders in wool fabric production, with an incredible 350-year heritage of wool production in Biella, Italy.

Detail of Half-Canvassed Construction

Half-Canvassed Construction

Half-canvassed jackets have a special wool canvassing that extends from the shoulder, through the lapels, and ends below the first button. The result is a jacket that conforms to your body and fits better over time. The canvassing also helps your jacket drape cleanly, which is especially important in the lapel and chest.

    Joshua in WASHINGTON, DC

  • It’s a good look, decent value.

    Amer in Cambridge, MA

  • Amazing quality

    Richard in MIDLOTHIAN, VA

  • Fabric and construction quality are the reasons I'm a fan of PC

    Patrick in ATLANTA, GA

  • Fabric quality and design were beyond any expectations in this price rsnge.

    Robert in Benton, IL

  • Love the fabric. Would be nice to have 30 degree flap pocket option. Would be nice to ditch the branded buttons. The bulky silver zipper on the trousers is a disaster and needs replacing.

    Brendan in Napa, CA

  • Light weight, year-round fabric

    David in Upper Montclair, NJ

  • Be aware of their new zippers. After I received my tailored suits, I realized that they somehow changed the trousers zipper to ugly, shiny and thicker zipper slider and pull that they don't even match the color of the zipper teeth/elements/tape and the color of the trousers. It simply looks ugly to me. I contacted the customer service right away. I was told that their Quality Assurance Team is trying new premium Italian zippers. These new zippers would be fine to use for outerwear jackets in my opinion but not for suits trousers! I already own 4 other tailored suits purchased from Proper Cloth and I've been very happy with them. They used to use a thinner and better-looking YKK zipper slider/pull that exactly matches the color of the rest of the zipper teeth/elements/tape. They are not easily visible when it's fully closed. But the new "premium Italian zipper" is thicker with shiny stainless steel color that it is definitely visible from the right side view even when you fully close the zipper and wear your belt. I sent my feedback to customer service so I hope that they reconsider using new zippers to dress pants/trousers. Now, I have to take my trousers to a local tailor (which they suggested) to be altered. I know Proper Cloth will reimburse the cost but what an inconvenience! I hope this review helps others thinking about ordering suits/trousers.

    Yoshi in San Marcos, CA

    Kyle in Chicago, IL

  • It is much, much darker in person than it appears on the website.

    John in Washington, DC

  • Great suit for everyday rotation

    Paul in Syosset, NY

  • Would prefer more structured model for formal suits.

    Mark in Rye, NY

  • Excellent

    Timothy in New York, NY

  • awesome

    John in San Antonio, TX

  • Good looking fabric

    David in Upper Montclair, NJ

  • Ordered with the full canvas option, worth extra money.

    John in Dallas, TX

  • The fabric is breathable and very well-made. A must for any closest

    Anthony in Austin, TX

  • Excellent, exactly as described.

    Asher in Chicago, IL

    Theo in New York, NY

    Erick in New York, NY

    Ted in Guilford, CT

  • Zach in WASHINGTON, DC

  • I am really satisfied with the suit. It looks great and is amazing to the touch

    Andrii in New York, NY

  • Fabric is very nice, construction seems high quality. I was surprised that the wings on the lapel were so high and close to the shoulders.

    Michael in Chicago, IL

  • Outstanding.

    Donald in CHICAGO, IL

  • Very nice suit, loved material and peak lapels

    Paul in Syosset, NY

  • great quality

    Patrick in Minneapolis, MN

  • Very high quality fabric and the details in the suit are all there.

    Randall in TAMPA, FL

  • great!

    Jason in New York, NY

  • Fabric is good.

    Jacopo in New York, NY

  • Fabric is a plain color but really elegant. Construction quality is excellent. I have a handful of bespoke jackets that cost a lot more than this suit, yet this PC suit has tidy pick stitching and a truly carefully sewn lining.

    Keith in Chicago, IL

  • Fabric is great. Timeless design.

    John in Littleton, NH

  • Fabric is great for the price, though obviously not materially more expensive than it was

    David in Larkspur, CA

  • Only issue is narrow lower pant legs

    Rick in ALPHARETTA, GA

  • Love the sheen and feel of the Merino wool. The charcoal grey is ideal for formal or more casual outings.

    Scott in Hudson, WI

  • Everything looks great. The fabric is pretty good, but not amazing (given the price). The lapel widths are timeless, and the overall styling of the suit is modern yet classic.

    Aaron in Astoria, NY

  • Best I've owned, at an approachable price point.

    Antoine in Brewster, NY

  • Great everyday-wear fabric. In the future, it would be nice to have a few more slightly more luxurious fabric choices.

    Constantinos in Herndon, VA

  • The fabric is noticeably soft and comfortable. It's good quality for the price point.

    John in Tampa, FL

  • Great fabric. Excellent fit on the jacket.

    Oladapo in BOSTON, MA

  • classic design

    Andrew in New York, NY

  • blown away so fine

    paul in Las Cruces, NM

  • High quality fabric, very comfortable and stylish.

    matthew in Wildomar, CA

  • Fabric looked nice. I was not impressed with the sewing on the jacket though.

    Bryan in New Haven, CT

  • Good value. Nice design. I'd prefer a higher quality fabric. Not anything super-luxury, but may a little finer.

    Brad in BROOKLYN, NY

  • The fabric and quality seem very good. In terms of design, I would like to see a couple of features added: -ticket pocket option -monogram on the inside of the jacket

    Jake in West Newton, MA

  • Same or better quality than suits that cost 3x as much.

    Nick in Menlo Park, CA

  • Beautiful fabric

    Harry in Siglap, Singapore

  • Overall I would have liked this suit had it fit right, or even been close. If I have to use it right now, I'm going to be self conscious about how it looks. It does seem to be a nice fabric. I like the weight and it had the start of being a much better cut than an off the shelf size (shoulders are massively better and so is the length).

    Brett in kirkland, WA

  • Nice fabric, feels luxurious, looks great

    Samuel in NEW YORK, NY

  • Would be a fantastic value if the fit was right.

    Jason in Pound Ridge, NY

  • Lapels are a little weirdly shaped but otherwise suit is great.

    Daniel in Washington, DC

  • Thought the suit was a good value for the price. Quality of materials was much better than I have seen in some bog box higher end clothing retailers - especially at the price point.

    Richard in Northbrook, IL

  • Great Fabric

    DAVID in Miami, FL

  • n/a


  • Another favorite. I love everything about it.

    Henry in Washington, DC

  • Fabulous fabric, good weight without being heavy. Fit was great as I have come to expect from Proper Cloth. Quality feels very high.

    Reed in Toronto, Ontario

  • overall very good suit

    John in ROSWELL, GA

  • poor stitching on lapel - looked old and worn. didnt lay flat. Maybe that is the look, but I didnt like it.

    Michael in Medfield, MA

  • Very high quality.
