Check out a few screenshots from my ordering and customization experience:

The total for my custom dress shirt order came out to $160, plus $15 shipping. While I don’t necessarily have a problem with the cost of the shirt, in the age of free shipping offered at many online retailers, I was surprised to find that Proper Cloth charges $15 for shipping of custom dress shirts. In order to get free shipping on custom dress shirts, you’ll need to order over $200 worth of merchandise. Accessories, jackets, and samples ship for free at all times.

At the time of my order, Proper Cloth estimated that my shirt would be delivered between June 23rd and 24th, which was about 2 weeks from the time I placed the order. When I received my shipping notification, the FedEx tracking page told me that the estimated delivery date was June 27th. Thankfully, the FedEx tracking page was wrong, and the shirt arrived promptly on June 24th.

The shirt came in a hard cardboard box, wrapped very well, as you’d expect a custom dress shirt to be. As soon as I saw the fabric, I was very happy with my choice. It’s a bright and energetic pattern on a light fabric that can easily be worn during the summer or the winter. The shirt construction is solid and it feels like a high-quality shirt.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
