post #121 of 263

I'm thinking of picking up another PC shirt, this time the Red & Navy gingham. How casual with this fabric be? I know its broadcloth, but I have a hard time understanding if that means the shirt will be crisp and formal or if it will be comfortable, flexible, and casual.

Broadcloth is a great fabric for formal shirts, because it is crisp and irons well. The pattern that you linked to, however, is relatively informal. Most formal business shirts are either blue, white, or a combination of the two. That said, there is absolutely no reason why you couldn't wear broadcloth casually. I would say that you could dress this shirt both up and down, depending on how formal your office environment is. My office is relatively casual and I can certainly get away with a pattern like this on occasion.

I have a shirt form this fabric. Broadcloth in and of itself is crisp, but this also depends on thread count et cetera. It's certainly more formal (broadcloth) than an oxford cloth. All that said, broadcloth can be used for any design and the red and navy gingham pattern makes it far more casual. I wouldn't wear it with a tie, but that's due to the pattern/color, not the fabric per se.

 

Great shirt, though, I recommend it.

Thanks for the quick replies!!

 

Andrew Ryan, how comfortable is the fabric? I don't 'work' per se (grad student) so I don't have to impress an office environment. But I'll be wearing this shirt in my daily rotation of 'clothes that aren't black metal t-shirts'

It's not the highest thread count, so it's a little thin compared to their higher end offerings - the 120s and up broadcloths, fine twills, and so forth. However, I find it quite comfortable and the pattern (with navy as opposed to true blue) very versatile.

A few places online say you are able to get $25 off your first shirt. I am all signed up and ready to go but have no idea how to get the checkout page to reflect any discount...

 

Did I screw something up or is that something that is not offered?

 

Resolved via Proper Cloth customer service, very prompt I might add.

Hey Guys,
We just launched a brand new collection on the site! It was designed with a really strong color story in mind. A full spectrum of blue hues accented with the pop of orange reminiscent of the last little bit of color you get in a New York sunset. We loved the way that bit of orange makes a spring look a little more fun, while still staying easy to wear and masculine.








Since custom fitting shirts are our expertise, we started here. Dress shirt fabrics include super soft, lightweight broadcloths coming from Italian mills Canclini, Cotonifico Albini and Thomas Mason. Sport shirts feature lightweight denims and chambrays.

The jackets are a first for us and we're really excited about them. They are totally unstructured and unlined for an incredibly lightweight feel. You can wear these jackets on the hottest days and still be comfortable. We have two styles, a silk/linen/wool blend navy herringbone and a Loro Piana 100% tropical weight wool plaid.

We had these made in an awesome little factory in Italy. They've been making these lightweight, deconstructed jackets for decades now. The level of craftsmanship and fit are really incredible and the style nicely compliments our artisanal soft collars perfectly.

I only posted a selection of the images, but if you want to see the whole collection you can follow the link below:

As always--would love to get your feedback!
Cheers,
Chris

Nice collection and really like the jackets.  You guys do great work and your customer service is second to none.  The Howard Street Chambray is very nice and very soft to the touch.  I did mine with a soft President cutaway and it works with and without tie.

So glad I have a sample of that chambray fabric coming with my order.

 

I bought the light blue oxford with the Ivy collar, soft placket and cuffs. Testing the waters with a standard OCBD before venturing into some other fabrics.

These look very nice, but why the working buttons on the sleeves? Sure it's a "bespoke detail" but it makes sizing very difficult. I for one will not be able to order due to the working cuffs.
