Suit is gonna be like this color:

 

Personally, I would go with a crisp white broadcloth with a spread collar (and black oxfords).

I'm getting married in September and am looking to buy my wedding shirt. I want it to be white, comfortable, and casual for a wedding. My other requirement is that it be opaque--I don't wear undershirts and I have dark tattoos, so I don't want them to show through.

 

I'm looking at the White 100s Royal Oxford and the Thomas Mason Oxford. Thoughts?

The wrinkle resistant cavalry twill is nice and not see-through. I have two in this fabric.

I second that. I have blue, white and pink in that style. Probably one of my favorites.

Got my remade oxford back and with some adjustments I am very pleased. My only change next time would be the yoke I think, I took .75 off and I think I need to take off even a bit more next time. I think I pretty much nailed the arms, chest, waist and length this time around. The shirt has been washed and dried two times before checking everything over.

 

Sorry for the quick phone pics but let me know if you guys have any suggestions. I wanted a length and width that worked double duty for tucked and untucked and I think it's spot on. If I was working with a strictly tucked in shirt I might go slightly more narrow in the waist.

 

 

 

 

 

What is going on with the pulling here though? Poor button placement? This is the right side and it is much worse compared to the left.

 

 

 

Here are the specs: (I am 5'9" 175lbs)

That looks like it could be a button issue. Hard to say. did you send that photo off to proper? They're usually very quick with a response.

I'd wait to hear back from them to see what they say first.

 

Somewhat related note, I really love their construction, but man I really wish their oxfords were a bit softer. I know they have the Thomas Mason fabrics, but that's a bit more than I want to spend on one shirt.

I hear you on the softness, I find that part of the fun though is breaking it in over time and making it soft that way. By no means is the fabric rough, but I do have samples of some of the higher end oxfords to see the difference. I am very happy with the construction and weight of the oxford, I do think this one will break in nicely.

Anyone else have a problem with too much fabric around the bicep? It seems like the default armhole is too high/small and all the extra fabric gets relegated to the bicep area.

Just got a tie from Proper Cloth, so thought I'd stop by to say that I really like it. It seems very well made, and knots and wears well.

X post from waywt. Got my Ivy button down popover and took it for a spin today. Love the fabric and fit! Had to do the complimentary alterations process though—the collar came out huge when I simply put my normal collar size in (and I tweaked a bunch of other stuff too).

You could always ask them to reduce the amount of fabric in the bicep area. Mine's pretty slim throughout the arm to the cuff.

How do you like the popovers? I've been debating whether or not to get one.
