How to Measure for Your Dress Shirt

dsYou may have noticed that we’re not like those other stores. Not just because we operate solely online, no brick and mortar, which means you don’t have to pay the high prices of a store-front. And no, not just because we sell exclusively to our customers, never wholesale, so you can’t find these one-of-a-kind styles anywhere else.  What sets us apart – well, in addition to those aspects – is our emphasis on a perfect fit. In dress shirts, our specialty, that means exact sizing. However, since standardized sizing is the norm in most big retail environments, you might not be familiar with how exact sizing works. Here’s how to measure yourself to find the specifications you’ll need… Continue>>

Esteemed in Deep Tones

You’ve likely seen us use the phrase “deep tones” in describing a dominant theme of our Fall Collection. But what exactly are deep tones, and why do we place so much emphasis on them in this particular season? Well, a deep tone is pretty much what it sounds like: the tone (or color) is deep (or dark); this is in comparison to other seasons when we have pastels, jewel tones, and other such groupings of colors. Some of the most popular and unique deep tones are plum, mulberry, sage, merlot, brown, olive, navy, indigo, and burgundy. We’ll take you through the Fall ’16 Collection and recommend a few of our top styles in deep tones.

It’s Our 30th Anniversary

We’re turning 30! In honor of this very exciting milestone, we’re going to fill you in on the 5 Things You Should Know About Paul Fredrick:

  1. We’ve actually been in the business of crafting America’s finest dress shirts for over a half-century. We have our roots in the Fleetwood Shirt Company, a contract shirt manufacturer that supplied dress shirts to upscale specialty stores for over fifty years. Paul Fredrick was born out of this very distinguished tradition of the American garment industry.
  2. Since we only sell direct to the consumer through our catalog and website, we are able to offer styles that are priced as competitively as possible while still maintaining our rigorous quality standards.
  3. Unlike any other company

Fall 2016 Buyers’ Picks

In today’s post, we’re going to give you a peek into the minds of the people behind the Paul Fredrick Fall 2016 Collection. Our Buyers work closely with the manufacturers in their niche from initial design, product development, all the way through to the final delivery of the season’s styles. Although every style is special in its own way, each of our Buyers have a favorite that they feel came out exceptionally well; alongside the debut of the new Fall 2016 Collection, we asked them to tell us what they chose from their category.

Trim Fit Now Has a New Name

DML946B

We realize there might be some confusion about our latest update, so we want to address it head-on to resolve any questions you might have. You may have noticed that all styles previously marked “trim fit” now say “slim fit.” So, what does this mean for our customers?

 

Nothing! Our slim fit garments will continue to be cut and crafted just like our old trim fit, but you can now find them under the “slim fit” designation. “Slim fit” is an industry standard term, and this simple name change will make it easier for shoppers not familiar with Paul Fredrick to understand our different fits.

 

So, take advantage of our slim fit… Continue>>

Shades of Autumn

Spring… Summer… Fall… Holiday… Each of the four seasons in a Paul Fredrick calendar year has its own particular colors and color schemes. There are, of course, tones that transcend these periods and are popularly worn year-round: basic white and black are two examples that are generally considered ‘evergreen.’ The building blocks of color are very important throughout;  we in essence see the same colors – red, purple, yellow, orange, green, and blue – repeated every season. What changes, though, is the variation in each hue that we match to the appropriate season. Let’s look at these variations for Fall 2016!
