Nah at the moment I don't wear it with a tie but I do like how it looks with a tie.

 

I'd want to order more shirts but climbing is jacking up my forearms (tore a small hole in the sleeve navy chambray on the sleeve when I had the sleeves rolled up. I was able to get it fixed though) and I already use the traditional setting for my shirts. I'm sure I could increase the sleeve width but it would get so billowy in the arms. Hmm what to do.

Hey Guys,
Didn't have a chance to post on SF about our new winter ties + knit hats, but wanted to give everyone the heads up! Really pleased with how all of these came out and think they're all great values. All of the ties come in both regular and long sizes, FYI.
The most unique pieces in the collection are the hand-frayed wool ties. We worked with our factory to develop these in a few solid and plaid designs--definitely a subtle, yet distinctive detail when worn.

Along with these, we did a bunch of untipped, hand-rolled wool ties in herringbone, striped, and shepherds check designs. With our knits factory, we did more 100% cashmere birdseye styles (something we did last year and loved). They do a really great job with these and the ties are super super soft.

Last, but not least, we did some beautiful knit caps with the same factory that does our knit ties. They're 100% cashmere and wear really warm. It's a thicker, denser knit than we've seen from most brands and we really like how they just keep getting softer the more they're worn.

That's the nuts and bolts of it--if you want more detail on the products we have a more compressive breakdown at http://propercloth.com/italian-neckwear. As always, would love to get everyone's feedback!

Maybe I'm obtuse, but I don't see it up there. 

 

EDIT: I see now that it's up in the order tool, just not on the collar style page. Gonna give it a try.

Anyone try the Suits or Jackets yet?

Pictures? Feedback?

 

I really like the ideas behind them. More classic styling, comfortable, etc.

Looks like they're nicely cut on the model images.

 

The pricing seems too high to me on the jackets though.

A deconstructed jacket takes way less effort to make and it's still $650?

$750 for the suit is a great overall price though.

A deconstructed jacket takes more effort to make. The lining of a constructed jacket hides all the raw seams. Unconstructed/Unlined/half/quarter lined, all the seams have to be taped or finished. Less canvas (without fusing), shoulder pads, etc, require greater skill to get the drape and fit right.  The price they are charging for the fabric and country of Origin is good value even for the Jacket alone.

I started using Proper Cloth early this year and I've since purchased maybe 15 shirts from them. Once I got the fit to my liking, it is really hard to stop just pulling the trigger. "Ooo, that's a nice fabric", and so on. I'm very pleased with almost all my PC shirts and where I'm less happy, it's been mostly my fault (for example, carelessly ordering the default (fused) placket on a couple of OCBDs). I think my main gripe has been that the fused cuffs seem insubstantial and thin on some of the finer (thinner) fabrics.

 

I have a bunch of white dress shirts now and I've more or less settled on the President Spread Collar. I've experimented with french cuffs and with french plackets and been happy with the results. I love the OCBDs with the Soft Ivy collar--hands down the best button-down collar since vintage Brooks Brothers or Mercer & Sons. I have experimented with popovers and once I realized I had to make the body of the shirt bigger to make it easier to get on, I got a superb "Byronic" shirt with the soft Roma Cutaway collar. It's a really great shirt. I have also been very pleased with the recent flannels, which are some of the softest shirts I've ever felt.

 

I also bought the silk & linen scarf in the summer for a trip to Europe. I was mistaken for a European on several occasions, an unexpected thing, and one which I took to be rather flattering to me and to Proper Cloth.

 

Anyways, I've been delighted with PC's customer service and with their products. I plan to continue ordering shirts from them. The only sad thing is now all my older shirts just seem to fit me so poorly.

I have (had) the same problem. It's resulted in me getting rid of every single shirt I owned from The Before Time.

I'm not there yet, but I'm in the same zip code, for sure.
