#BLACKLIVESMATTER

Like many of you, I read about the inhumane murder of George Floyd and Amy Cooper’s abuse of privilege last week. With this latest injustice coming on the heels of the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others over the years, my emotions have ranged from anger to sadness.

In the same week the US was able to send two astronauts into outer space, we also witnessed some of the worst behavior of our humanity, showcasing two ends of our human capabilities.

To all of those hurting, especially those in the Black community, know that we at Peau De Loup stand with you and support your right to be seen and heard. I won't pretend to fully understand or even speculate what you're going through, including the injustice you may face daily. 

Instead, as the leader of a company whose mission is to empower equality in the form of liberating menswear, I believe that we also have a responsibility to take action toward creating what we want to see realized in the communities around us.

Silence and inaction equal consent, so we commit to speaking up and taking action to fight injustice, inequality, and discrimination. But I also know how important it is to listen and learn when people with lived experiences are speaking. We must do both in order to truly do the work to make this week, and every week that comes after it, better.

On the immediate we will be donating 10% of sales to queer black organizations in need starting with the trans and queer led social justice organization and legal fund based in the USA. 

As a company we are pausing, listening, learning, protesting, donating and supporting the movement.
It’s our turn to hold space, show up and demand change.

There is not pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.

Button-Up Sizing Guide

Fit is incredibly personal - some like their shirts to fit snugly around their body while others prefer to wear them looser. We've provided a number of fit charts below to help you find your fit. Note that there are some variations in the way different fabrics will hang on your body, and some shirts will fit more snugly than others. We recommend always sizing up in flannel.

If you're at the top 1 - 1.5 inches of the bust range, you will likely have to release the box pleat.

Below are the flatlay measurement charts for our Alpha shirts. We have shown our measurements taken from lying the garment flat and measuring in inches. We recommend grabbing a shirt you own in similar fabric and comparing!

 

In between sizes? Go for the smaller one - there’s a pleat in the back of every PDL shirt that you can remove with a seam ripper - this will give an extra 1½ inches in the chest to prevent button-gape. 

Fit Guide by Style

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.

ABOUT THE MODELS

Our size 4 model is 5'9", with a 34" bust, 25" waist, and 32" hips.

Our size 8 model is 5'9", with a 36.5" bust, 30.5" waist, and 42" hips.

Our size 16 model is 5'10".

Customizing Your Shirt with the Box Pleat

The box pleat at the back of PDL shirts allows for a bit of flexibility in sizing. Note: collarless shirts do not have their pleat sewn down by default.

Removing the Pleat for More Space in the Bust

If your shirt fits in the shoulders and arms but is a little snug through the bust, you can remove the pleat to gain an extra inch and a half in that area. Kindly note that shirts with the pleat removed are no longer eligible for exchange or refund.

To remove the pleat, you will need a seam ripper. This little tool comes with most sewing machines and sewing kits. Watch the video below to see how it's done:

Extending the Pleat to Take Your Shirt In at the Hips

If the shirt is too roomy around the hips, you can also extend the pleat to take the shirt in by 1 - 1.5inches from the waist down. This is a pretty simple sewing job if you have the skills. You'll need a sewing machine and an iron. Kindly note that all modified shirts are ineligible for return/exchange.
