A great dress shirt must bring together form and function.

A great dress shirt must bring together form and function. Through a methodology that puts the considerations of our wearer alongside our ability to create, the PYE dress shirt collections integrate style and lifestyle so as to define, rather than just design. We obsess over every detail — from the curve of an armhole, to the stitches on a button — to ensure that we get everything right. And we leverage learning and abilities from each of our stakeholders to deliver a cutting edge product that is just so.

Make:
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.

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

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

A. Trochus 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.

B. White Lip 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.

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.

Collars:
The PYE collars lead to a perfect ten.

The collar is often the first thing someone notices on your shirt and in relation to how you are presenting yourself. Some choose a collar type that best frames their face, works best for a preferred tie knot, or is just a personal style preference. Because of this, we've developed ten distinctive collars—each one sharp, structured, and meticulously crafted for you.

Spread

The spread collar points away from the placket towards the shoulder. Typically seen as more European, it is now associated with an easy modernity and elegance.

Point

The point collar is a style where the collar points down towards the chest. The point collar is often seen as more American, which is why we have chosen to also introduce our button down collar in this style.

Mandarin

The mandarin collar was popularized as part of contemporary dress in the late 1800's when leader Sun Yat-Sen paired it alongside the mandarin collar suit, also known as the Zhongshan Zhuang. A stylish option for those who prefer to go without a tie.

Fit:
An exact fit for an exacting man.

The quality and make of a shirt will not matter if the shirt doesn't fit you perfectly. And a perfect fit is based as much upon how you like your shirt to look, as how you like your shirt to feel.
