Proper Cloth : GQ's "Favorite Online Custom Shirtmaker" - Page 2

Now I'm confused =/ Who's Seth and why am I being compared?

Blahman, you're right, but I felt like I was pretty up front about saying I simply liked the site compared to all the others I've seen. That was as far as I meant it to go, and I've seen how out of hand half the people on this forum will go in bitchfights once they start so I'd really rather avoid something that's starting where no offense was intended.

At propercloth's prices (maybe slightly more) you can get MTM shirts made from a local maker. ModernTailor is good because you can get a shirt for less than you would from any MTM maker in the states. Once you get the fit honed in you can even buy those high quality fabrics. Their MOP buttons aren't great, but they're nice. The only problems I've had have been with the way they sew their buttons on, which is a minor detail that I can fix easily.

They do have a nice site though.

I've never handled an issue of GQ in my life... so, yeah.
I have a number of shirts from Proper Cloth though.

I came to this thread hoping for affirmation that PC is a great deal, but haven't found much to support that opinion so far. Aside from the issue of their commendable web store and communications, most of the feedback I have found here and in other threads is about how expensive they are. (I have avoided purchasing shirts over $150 because I tend to agree.) Still, I've probably wasted an embarrassing amount of money trying to get the fit right, and I would have been better off putting in the effort to find a local tailor to be fitted in a hands-on manner. That aside, I am starting to be pleased with the results and have a few shirts now that I really like, and have no complaints about the construction, fabric or MOP buttons.

Proper Cloth's strength really is in the effectiveness of it's website, though. Ample high-res photos of the fabric, a fabric-thickness gage, scale-accurate representation of patterns, twelve different shirt dimensions, and video instructions all go a long way to make ordering (and then re-ordering) a custom shirt more appealing.

I wish they had more thicker fabrics though, like the burgundy stripe heavy oxford cloth, or heavier. Anyone know where else you might get a MTM shirt done in really nice heavy cloth?

I just bought my first test shirt with Proper Cloth. It bunched up around the neck slightly. I took it in to get re-measured, now it's aces. I think I will definitely buy more. Good selection of fabrics from all over. Endless possibilities . . .

 

Here is my referral link in case anyone else wants to give them a try: http://propercloth.com/i/c5uhcy

I think it gives a $30 discount, but don't quote me on that. 

 

Best

They need better, less expensive staples. They don't even have a light blue broadcloth, for example. And there's no way I'm paying $150 for oxford cloth, I don't care who made it.

Am I missing something? I don't see the value proposition of this compared to Geneva or CEGO.

I would agree with you, only both of those are in NYC.
