About Proper Cloth:

Proper Cloth is a startup making it incredibly easy for men to purchase quality custom shirts.

We see a future where people no longer buy clothes in standard sizes that don’t fit, or in styles they don’t love. A future where clothing is made on-demand for each individual’s shape and taste.

There aren’t many businesses like ours. We’re half technology startup and half fashion brand.  We’re not venture backed. We’re profitable and growing fast. We’ve doubled in size every year since we started. We’re leaders in our category. We’re experts in our field. We have product-market-fit. We have the stability to do things right. We’re building something to last.

We have tens of thousands of satisfied customers and an excellent reputation. We've been called “Our Favorite Online Custom Shirtmaker" by GQ and “One of the most successful made-to-measure e-commerce sites” by Esquire.
