About

Running off to the next occasion is EASY with Allen Young customizable dress shirts. The only shirt in the world with inter-changeable collars and cuffs.

One shirt for your busiest days in the office, at lunch, in business meetings, client calls and dinner invitations.

 Swapping collar and cuffs creates a whole new look with the SAME SHIRT
Swapping collar and cuffs creates a whole new look with the SAME SHIRT

A true multipurpose wardrobe staple. Whether business or casual, Allen Young is your go to shirt no matter the occasion. 

The typical dress shirt wears out way too quickly! Even after dry cleaning, a few wears in and the collar is permanently stained, drastically decreasing the life of the shirt.  A change to warmer weather or prolonged use of your favorite shirt typically meant embarrassing collar stains but now simply changing the collar allows a cleaner look, even when on the go.  With your choice of 4 collar styles:(Executive, Gentleman, English, Gatsby)

Adding another layer of personalization is a breeze with detachable shirt cuffs.  Offering 4 cuff styles (Round, Angled, Square and French Angled), you decide if you want to dress up or keep it casual.  Whether creating a style all your own or just extending the life of your shirt, we've got you covered.

The goal wasn’t to change the way the shirt looked - rather, to make it more efficient.  In an effort to add true functionality,  the collars and cuffs are removed and attached much like the way you button your shirt today.  After removing your old collar or cuff, take note of the contrast stitching and simply match up the coordinating button and button holes, reattaching together seamlessly.  

Since the collar and cuffs of a shirt are always the quickest part to show wear and tear, our patent-pending button attachment design allows you to not only create multiple looks but extend the shirts lifecycle. Simply purchase new collars and cuffs in any style you'd like!  

When it comes to a great fitting shirt, it's the little things that matter.  For a more comfortable fit we've added features that not only allow better movement of the shirt but enhances its durability.  

  • Removable Collars
  • Removable Cuffs
  • Split Yoke
  • Single Needle Lock Stitch Construction (with English Felled Seams)
  • Raised Arm Holes
  • Tapered to Waist and Hips

Risks and challenges

We are past the prototype stage and have been producing our shirts on a small scale. Our manufactures are very familiar with our shirt design and what goes into producing them. We are prepared to create and distribute thousands of our shirts when requested. You can be sure at Allen Young that what you see in this Kickstarter has been preselected to ensure availability. However, to provide the best customer experience, our delivery turnaround time includes, though unlikely, additional time in the event of higher than projected demand and weather disruptions which could cause delays in production. We have several contingency plans in place. Despite any challenges that may arise, we are certain that we’re prepared to handle any unforeseen events and bring you a shirt that is functional and matches your style.
