About Proper Cloth:

Proper Cloth is a leader in the direct-to-consumer men’s custom clothing market.  Our vision is to build a leading, global, luxury menswear brand.

We see a future where people don’t buy clothes in sizes that don’t fit or styles they don’t love.  A future where perfect, custom fit clothing is made on-demand for a superior customer experience and a more efficient supply chain.

Some quick stats about us: 

  • Headquartered in Soho, New York
  • Over 200,000 customers worldwide
  • Profitable, not venture backed

There aren’t many businesses like ours.  We’re half fashion brand and half tech-startup.  We've been called “Our New Favorite Online Custom Shirtmaker” by GQ magazine and “One of the most successful made-to-measure e-commerce sites” by Esquire.  We have product-market-fit and the stability to do things right.  We’re committed to building something that lasts.
