|On the Sidelines
Pro Knitwear began in 1953 in Pittsburgh, PA as a broker and
silk screener of athletic apparel. Our
Donald R. Feeney and William Flynn Feeney, assessed and adapted
to the then current trends and directed the company into
manufacturing and lettering of custom athletic apparel.
Pro Knitwear currently manufactures and letters quality
sportswear right here in the historic Terminal Buildings of the
Riverwalk Corporate Center in Pittsburgh's South Side. Timothy
X. Feeney, the current owner and second generation CEO, has
guided this company’s growth and prosperity for the last 30
years. His mantra “Work Hard, Play Hard” guarantees satisfaction
with our quality and service. He is a tremendous contributor to
the Pittsburgh area and, in our opinion, a legacy in his own
right. Our family lives and breathes Pittsburgh and is a proud
supporter of Western Pennsylvania athletics.
Some of our first custom offerings can be seen in snapshots of
our vintage catalogues. Keep in mind that any of the retro style apparel shown in these catalogues can be recreated today.
Our dedicated and experienced staff has been a vital component
in our company's success. An unsurpassed team and quality
product have kept Pro Knitwear's customers returning season
Our current staff includes John Young, Head Sales
Associate and Manufacturing Manager (with us for over 15 years);
Lauren Feeney, (third generation) Sales Associate (1 year);
Elizabeth M. Feeney, Office Manager (10 years); Susan Chappel,
Head Artist (8 years); Paul Chappel, Head Silk Screener (24

Made” and deliver a quality product to meet its customer's needs
