About

WHO WE ARE

We are a clothing company based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, specializing in silk-screened tees, shirts and totes. Our designs take inspiration from the industrial buildings, Coney Island, and the waterfront and streetscape of New York City past and present.

When I (Pete) moved to New York in 1991 to earn my MFA degree in painting at Hunter College, I was drawn to the industrial builidings, bridges, and other structures that make the City such an awe-inspiring place. These structures figured prominently in my paintings.

After graduating I took work as a Graphic Designer (my BFA degree) at various companies around town. After more than a decade of working on other people's projects, I decided I needed a change.

Looking out my apartment window in Red Hook, Brooklyn one day with my wife and son, and admiring the giant "R" sign that once belonged to E.J. Trum company. I thought "why not make a tshirt of that, and sell it at the local diner down the street?"
It sold so well, I decided to design more shirts with the images of industrial structures that captured my attention around Brooklyn, and sold them at the local, and now world-famous, Brooklyn Flea.

Hence, Live Poultry Apparel was born! Seven years later we're still going strong, and have sold our designs to people all over the world.

WHAT'S UP WITH THE NAME?
Well, as a wee boy, I used to trek over tall mountains to a small village, and bring home a freshly butchered chicken so my family....
No, actually, anyone who’s ever spent time in the outer boroughs is familiar with the ubiquitous poultry markets where you can pick out a fresh bird for dinner. They are an everyday sight throughout the five boroughs, and the name is something of an homage to this New York tradition.

All our clothing is hand-silkscreened in the traditional way (no automatic presses!), with our partner in an old Civil War era garment factory on the New York Bay in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

We will also reimburse your original shipping charge to cover the cost of returning it to us. Please take a good look at the size chart in each listing before ordering.

In the case of Free Shipping, if an item is returned due to no fault of Live Poultry, the original shipping costs will be deducted from any refund amount.
Additional policies and FAQs
We welcome all inquiries about wholesale only, no consignment please.
We do not do custom orders due to the high cost and labor involved to do one or two shirts. We'd have to charge a couple hundred bucks for one tee!
