I placed my MTO Shirt Order during the 20% Off Sale, I believe that was for Black Friday.
Order Placed: Nov. 13 2020
Shipped: Jan. 19 2021
Total Time: 9.25 Weeks, with holidays in between + Covid
Yep, exact same day we ordered it.

Note, I had no updates whatsoever. I emailed service and got a response from their custom email where I got a response the same day, they said it was a bit delayed and they would ship mine out ASAP. It then shipped a couple days later. Send them an email.

Eh, I've gone through this "pls ship me shirt" e-mail exchange for every MTM shirt order I've had, it's tiring. I'll wait another month.

Can't wait to see if their new program in February solves these issues

How do you all think this sportcoat fits (first 2 pics are the same jacket - just different lighting)? The body and sleeve length can be altered, of course. But, I'm more concerned about the shoulder fit. For comparison, the last pic is another jacket that I think fits me pretty well in the shoulders.

I'm skeptical, my critiques of the MTM shirt program span years. Here comes another reaming.

I always thought Proper Cloth was too expensive initially.

The irony is I spent more $$$ buying faulty shirts from S&M in the MTM program, in terms of quality control, vs. just going with PC in the first place. This is ignoring the consistent 8 week+ shipping time for all my orders.

In all fairness, the S&M experiments may have helped inform my switch to Proper Cloth, making the transition easier.

I was excited to see more MTM shirt selections for this fall and was met with this.



From others' comments, they seem to have had success when doing minimal adjustments from stock sizes and just picking a different collar. Basically more on the MTO than true MTM side.

I got suckered in by the last sale and still didn't learn my lesson apparently.

Looks great based on the pictures. Nothing wrong with a shoulder that is slightly extended. I don't see any dimpling or rippling.

i think it’s fine

I like when tweed is not a razor precise fit

it works well as a relaxed style

This is my first time trying the program, so I was curious how it will fit me along with how tolerance and stuff is. I don't really mind the wait time, because by the time I get the shipping notification I forgot I even ordered them and get excited lol. Basically like buying something again, but it is free

I actually used my S&M off the rack shirt purchases to further dial in my Proper Cloth measurements

S&M slim fit shirts fit me better than the Proper Cloth algorithm

proper cloth has a great user interface and outstanding delivery and customer service

I like both brands a lot

Hopefully it works for you man. That feeling is rare, but definitely feels great.

Shirts could have more emphasis now due to the pandemic, which could necessitate more attention to the QC and MTM shirt program by S&M. Hopefully it improves.

Agreed on all the points of PC. My biggest critique for them is not having the option for differing sleeve lengths.
