    Default Anyone use Propercloth.com?

    I just ordered my first shirt from propercloth. Anyone else use them? Any experiences/words of wisdom in dealing with them? I am hoping they are my answer to my poor fitting shirt dilemma.

    For those that dont know, ProperCloth makes 100% custom tailored shirts. You just pick your fabric and style, send in all your measurements, and 2 weeks later you have a fully custom shirt waiting on your door step.

    Recieved the shirt yesterday.

    The delivery time was on the long end of their estimated spectrum (4 full weeks).

    The shirt definitely fits better than any shirt I have ever owned, and it seems well constructed. My only complaint is that the sleeve length is a little too long.

    I called Propercloth and they said this is normal, they make the sleeves and the necks a little big b/c cleaning the shirt will cause those two dimensions to shrink. Im wearing it today and already got a compliment on the shirt from my paralegal, so it must look different from my usual fare.

    I will be a repeat customer.

    I haven't had a chance to order yet, but I write for Gear Patrol, and one of my assoicates was really impressed in his article/review. I've traded messages with Seph (one of the owners) a few times, and he seems very passionate about what they are doing.

    Glad to hear some more good feedback.

    While I haven't used Propercloth, I have ordered from VM Clothiers - Hand Tailored Custom Shirts and tailorstore.com (and one other, but the back log is so long already I can't share their name).

    VMclothers.com shirt quality was good, nothing special though. The stitching lacked substance, and collar folds were well done but with the general quality of the shirt fabric they felt flimsy.

    Tailorstore.com fabric was awesome, soft cotton, thick enough to have the high end feel, but thin enough to keep my fatness from melting in the summer. The cuffs and collar had a quality backing material added to the great fabric. The stitching is sturdy, and the button holes dead on.

    While made to measure is an cheaper way to get quality shirts, PLEASE keep in mind a professional measurement is worth it. Only order one shirt the first time to be sure the shirt is cut how you need it to be.

    An additional option is to send a correct fitting shirt. Tailorstore.com will do the measurements from it and return it with your order. This option allows you to make a larger first order.

    If you are ever in Shanghai, head to the custom tailor market. I studied in Shanghai this semester and got all my professional clothes made. $75 for a custom tailored suit, and $12/shirt for custom tailored dress shirts. Great stuff !

    I have never gotten proper measurements done. Something I have been meaning to do for months.
