Christmas is coming, and I'd like to present you with my wishlist for custom trousers.

1) Adjustable waistband height.
2) Options for coin pockets (flapped/jetted)
3) Suspender buttons
4) Jetted leg pockets*

*Hear me out! People need a place to keep their cellphones in their chinos. Back pocket causes spinal alignment issues, front pocket carries the possibility of testicular cancer, and cargo pockets look terribly unprofessional. I bet it would be a more popular option than pleated cargo pockets. Example below:

That pocket seems way to small for a modern phone

At 4.2" it fits an iPhone with some wiggle room left. It may have trouble with the iPhone Pro Max+++.

What is the height though ?

I just received my first formal shirt from Proper Cloth. It has the "rounded French cuffs." I was surprised that it also has a gauntlet button, which seems a bit odd with a formal shirt with French cuffs. The sleeve placket doesn't seem to lie correctly because of it. It's flat against the arm at the top of the placket, but at a right angle to the arm at the cuff.

None of my other formal shirts (MTM from Individualized Shirts) have the gauntlet button. The cuff selection page doesn't specify the gauntlet button in the text or pictures. I don't plan on wearing it with the sleeves rolled up, although I may leave the gauntlet unbuttoned.

Is this common with a French cuff? Is there a way to order it without the button?

Where’s the blazer from?

Vintage Neiman Marcus.

I'd been considering getting that same shirt. Do the collar and cuffs have the pique texture or are they plain?

This shirt only has the pique on the bib. Their website is down right now. At least for me. 95% sure there is an option to have a different fabric on the collar and/or cuffs. I would have liked to have pique on the collar and cuffs too to be honest. I forgot.

Alright, based on Seph's claims of an upgraded "shrinkage allowance" formula, the website's description of said calculations, I've gone ahead and ordered a couple of winter shirts. I've wanted to order in these fabrics for some time but got such a ridiculous fit on the first try that I've been leary. The japanese low-twist overshirt in particular looks great, and I'll be glad to finally see it happen.

Both fabrics claim "standard shrinkage allowance is applied", and if I understand the site correctly, that means that only the cuff and colar around measurements will be augmented, so the rest of the shirt should fit according to my provided measurements. We'll see how it goes. They should arrive with plenty of cold weather left.

If it works, I'll be making a larger purchase for sure.

Does anyone have any experience with their sportcoats? do they clone existing models?
