Fit Guide

One of PDL's foundational values is to create classic products. That’s why we have a suite of standard styles that we make in an assortment of fabrics. Once you know your fit in a particular style, you’ll be ready to snap it up when a limited edition upcycled fabric you love pops into our collection!

We've photographed a variety of styles on a few different bodies so you can get an idea of how our shirts might look on you. If your questions aren't answered here, please get in touch with us for personalized fit advice.

BUTTON DOWN

The PDL classic Alpha fit. A box pleat half-sewn down in the back for easy size adjustments, a collar that buttons down at the lapels, and our signature inside pocket. Available in a wide variety of fabrics, from flannel to Oxford to poplin and more, in short sleeve or long sleeve. > learn more about the box pleat and how it lets you customize your fit here.

BUTTON UP
A more formal take on our classic shirt, the button up features no lapel buttons and a stiffer collar that holds its shape. Typically made of stiffer, more premium fabrics, this is your go-to shirt for a formal event. It has an ever-so-slightly slimmer and shorter form (about 1cm shorter in the sleeve and torso) than our typical Alpha fit, with the same shoulder width.

COLLARLESS
Fashion-forward and unique, the collarless shirt features a modified, relaxed Alpha fit with no pocket and an open box pleat – making it less fitted in the body. You can sew the box pleat down yourself if you want a snugger fit.

CAR COAT & WALKING JACKET
Our terms for an unlined light shirt-jacket perfect for wearing while you walk. Our jackets are made out of heavier fabrics, from cotton flannel to wool to corduroy, and feature our signature embroidered pocket on the outside of the left breast. The car coat has outside patch pockets while the walking jacket has slit pockets for your hands.

FLANNEL
Our flannels come in almost all our collar and body styles, but they’re special in that they tend to fit snugly – especially since we tend to wear them over a tee shirt – and they’re more likely to shrink in the wash. Therefore, we recommend you always size up in flannel.
