About the Brand
In 1932, Brooklyn based shirt-maker Max Gitman left New York and opened the Ashland Shirt & Pyjama Company in the coal mining town of Ashland, Pennsylvania. With his two sons, Alfred & Sheldon, he ran the factory as a contract shop until 1978 when the Gitman Bros. brand was born. Today, they are one of the few remaining shirt-makers with all production based in the USA.
Launched in 2008, Gitman Vintage pays tribute to the brands rich heritage with a unique interpretation of the past. Each season, They return to the company archives and select fabrics from old line books, tweaking them with dyes and reworking patterns, scale and construction. Their philosophy has always been to bridge the old and the new, so they continue to honour the importance of the button down Oxford and classic chambray while continually pushing the boundaries of a traditional shirt-based collection with everything from pineapple prints to Japanese indigos and rip-stop nylon.
