Pro Knitwear began in 1953 in Pittsburgh, PA as a broker and silk screener of athletic apparel.  Our Grandpa Feeneyfounders, 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 after 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 years).

Our staff is excited, rejuvenated and ready to serve you.  In this age of outsourcing, very few companies can boast “American Made” and deliver a quality product to meet its customer's needs - we can.  We are Pittsburgh proud . . . America proud . . . we are Pro Knitwear!

The only thing we don't do is weave the fabric … yet
