In a brief moment of serendipity last month, I happened to come across the Proper Cloth headquarters by pure accident; they were located right next to the Meermin trunk show and I stumbled in by chance on my way out. Needless to say, I took full advantage of the opportunity and had a quick look around.
Over the years I have bought plenty of shirts from Proper Cloth (as seen here), so it was nice to meet founder Seph Skerritt and get a better look at what the company is up to. Their NYC office is loaded with fabric books and shirt samples, and locals can book appointments to be measured in person there.
I was also able to take a quick look at their expanding line of accessories; the ties in particular were quite nice (the cashmere ones – like on the mannequin below – were sold out at the time, but it looks like they’re back online). All told, it was a fun little excursion, and I’m glad I got to meet the team behind the products I own. My thanks go to Seph and the team for graciously hosting a random walk-in off the street claiming to be a “menswear blogger” – in other words, someone that comes in, takes a bunch of photos, and doesn’t buy anything. Thanks, guys!
