Further to the above, I would love to be able to custom order something like this from Proper Cloth


This type of chino is surprisingly hard to find at non nosebleed prices
Agreed, particularly on the lack of non-stretch options. It also seems like there’s been relatively little feedback on their tailoring. I’m planning on stopping in next weekend to get measured and check it out.
The prices really seem competitive, so I’m surprised there hasn’t been more posted here.

I'm really interested in some of the new fabrics, like the Reda wool flannels and the Viyella revival. Unfortunately I may be up to my quota for winter shirts (especially since climate change has January feeling like April). But I'd like to read people's reviews.

Went in for a fitting. The measured me and I compared the size of the shirt from the fitting from those generated using my measurements and I see the following differences:

The results from the fitting have
-0.25" chest width
-0.75" midsection width
-0.5" cuff
+0.25" length
sloped shoulders
compared to my measurements

Are these typical?

When you cross your arms and there is some tightness in the arms and back. What tweaks can you make the help this? Go 0.25 on the arms and/or chest?

Two more questions:

Is there a flat hem option (for polos)

And why can't I have popover with 3 not 4 front buttons? For my torso length this practically makes it look like a full button down shirt...

Does anyone have examples of the Soft President Spread collar vs the Soft English Spread? I want to order some casual flannel shirts and I don't like button downs much. I figured I would order 1 of the spreads and the soft point on another.

I have both and prefer the soft English spread on flannel shirts. I can take pictures, but I don't think they will look as good as the comparison tool on their website. I don't think either will look bad though. I have the soft Franklin spread on two flannels and definitely prefer either the soft English or president spread.

The two collars are very very very similar. Especially the soft ones. I have two flannel shirts one with each collar waiting to be ironed behind me. I couldn't tell the difference until I double checked what I ordered. If you need some pictures I will do some when I find motivation to iron ... Just let me know.

By the way. I am 100% for flannel shirts without BD. It's so much more elegant !

Thanks for the replies guys. I figured both were acceptable and would work well with the flannel, casual style.

First time order here with a newb question. I see in the FAQ that it is an option to add darts, but I didn’t see it as I was customizing a shirt. How to I select rear darts? Thanks!

It was always available in the sizing section—along with cuff size and button placement.

Thanks. I found it - I was making the mistake of selecting ‘copy an existing shirt’ To enter values rather than dialing-in the default sizing.

Don’t suppose there is a first-time buyer or forum code I’m missing, is there?
