PDL Artist Series: Kelly Small Pronoun Tees
(*MEASUREMENTS LISTED AS APPROX. BODY CIRCUMFERENCE)
previously measured as garments laying flat.
If you don't necessarily fit within the binary, you don't need 'permission' to shop from the men's section. You need clothing that is actually fit for your body, that creates square shapes and helps you feel more like yourself.
We've spent the last ten years perfecting our fits!
Our products are made using our patented body block built for bodies not gender! Designed to create a slight a-frame shape to fit snugger on the shoulders and looser around the hips.
We only use upcycled fabrics from left over menswear to minimize cling around the chest and hips. *Each fabric will have some variations in the way different fabrics will hang on your body, and some shirts will fit more snugly than others.
Everything is designed to fit together - for example if you are a size 8 in our button up you should be a size 8 in everything else we carry! If you are not sure just email us at email@example.com we would be happy to help
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.

About the Artist
Q: How would you describe the art you make?
A: Most often, my creative output is in servitude to big brands. Hear me out! I do my best to make sure that big business is doing the least amount of harm with its advertising and marketing and I’m a vocal proponent of effecting incremental change toward more ethical and inclusive practices from within a pretty problematic industry. I recently wrote and designed a book on the same topic called Ethical Sellout. When I’m not doing corporate work, I love to collaborate with small businesses and support community non-profits with pro bono design and branding work.
Q: How do you identify? How do you think your identity is reflected in your work?
A: I identify as queer in all aspects of the word and am happy with the pronouns she/hers and they/them. I have white settler ancestry and do my best to be aware of that privilege and advocate nd support where I can. My identity is directly reflected in my work; I believe that my focus on social impact, ethics, and inclusivity is a direct result of firsthand experience with gender-and-sexuality-based discrimination.
Q: Do you have a coming out story to share?
A: I am grateful to share that my coming out story is rather uneventful. Sure there were some fraught moments, but I got a lot of love and acceptance pretty quickly. The initial conversation went a little like:
Me: I’m dating a woman.
My straight Mom: Your aunts always thought I was a lesbian
Q: Since we’re all about fashion… what’s your power outfit that makes you feel like the best version of yourself?
A: Blazer. PDL button-up. Black jeans. Brogue boots. I became so well known for my power outfit in my last job that I got the nickname “Major Blazer”
Q: What’s an unexpected fact about you?
A: I’m a pretty extreme introvert and I struggle with lifelong anxiety and major clinical depression. The work I’ve done as a creative director requires a lot of presenting, leadership, and public appearance. People assume I’m a natural extrovert, that I love being the centre of attention, and I’m comfortable speaking publicly when in reality my happy place is curled up in bed in complete silence with a good book and a cup of tea. I think it’s really powerful to be real with each other about these aspects of our identities and the parts of our world that can feel challenging.
Q: Which charity have you chosen to support with your design and why?
A: I chose QMUNITY because of the important community work they do for queer, trans, and two-spirit folks and their commitment to making mental health and counselling services more accessible. I would love to split the proceeds between QMUNITY in Vancouver and the 519 in Toronto which is another queer community organization who does really critical work for new queer refugees..
All our fabrics are UPCYCLED so for the care of the environment and the garment we always encourage cold water washing and hang drying of all of our clothes. Did you know that how we take care of our clothes after we buy them, like washing and drying contributes to 50-80% of the carbon footprint of the garment.
