CLOSING THE GAP BETWEEN DESIGN AND PRODUCTION.
A great looking shirt that falls apart can't be considered great. Conversely, a well-made shirt that doesn't look good can't be considered great either. Owning our own factories — where shirts have been made for over three decades — allows us to consider both aesthetics and technical expertise in tandem. No detail is overlooked so that each PYE shirt can be crafted to our exacting standards, ensuring a sharp look and a great fit that lasts over time.
COLLARS
100% COTTON INTERLININGS
Multiple pieces of 100% cotton interlining are carefully assembled to create a strong and stable structure.
COLLAR SHAPE
Collars designed with three-dimensional patterns creates a shape that stands and rolls gracefully.
COLLAR BAND
Fused into the neckline on the outside for a sharp look without puckering, and loosened on the inside for comfort.
REMOVABLE COLLAR STAYS
Strong removable collars stays that straighten the collar and that ensure the longevity of your shirt.
SEWING & SEAMS
STITCHING
Each garment is sewn with a single needle at 18-22 stitches per inch to ensure seam strength, minimal puckering and clean lines.
GUSSETS
A simple gusset anchors each side seam of the shirt and provides durability during movement and daily wear.
BUTTONS & BUTTONHOLES
Sewn using custom machines to ensure maximum strength with a 1/8" shank on the button to avoid pulling and puckering on the fabric.
PATTERN
FITS
Four flattering fits to suit a range of body types and desired styles.
PATTERN MATCHING
Patterns and lines in our fabrics are perfectly matched to ensure symmetry across each garment.
LONG SHIRT TAIL
Longer tail ensure the shirt doesn't pop out of your pants.
SPLIT YOKES CUT ON A BIAS
Split yokes with fabric cut on a bias across the back shoulder to provide better movement and comfort.
THE SHELL BUTTON
TROCA SHELL
Used on our Classic and Universal shirts, these naturally luninescent shell buttons are crafted with a clean back for a modern ease and a height of 2.4mm to avoid breakage.
MOTHER OF PEARL
From the same material making up the outer coating of pearls, we created a 2mm natural Mother of Pearl buttons on our Definitive and Infinity shirts for substantial elegance.
LABELING
STYLE CODE
Each PYE shirt is labeled with a style code that represents the type of shirt, collar shape, fit, and collection of the shirt for your convenience. You can then use this style code to repurchase similar shirts through our shirtfinder.
PRODUCTION CODE
Shirt making is a big part of the PYE promise. These three sets of numbers refer to the three main facilities in which your shirt and the main processes– yarn spinning, fabric weaving, and sewing – in their making took place.
THE FOUR PYE COLLECTIONS
OBSESSIVE QUALITY
When it comes to quality, you might say we're a bit obsessive. Not only do we perform a range of tests on each final garment, we also perform tests throughout every step in the process to ensure the highest quality shirt. Visual checks are administered for pattern matching, design, and every element of construction. Durability and longevity checks test for things like seam bursting, tearing strength, fabric shrinkage, and stability over washes and wears to name a few. Every shirt is important to us, and we hope that they defy your expectations.
A SAFE WORKING ENVIRONMENT
At our facilities, we aim to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which our colleagues can make your shirts. We put their well being into the foreground, and insist on a mutual respect amongst our teammates. Beyond the lines, we hope to create a community where people support and care for one another. The work is detail oriented and insistant, but we hope that we have built a good place to make a decent living.
