Gitman Vintage drops this cotton linen shirt in blue chambray. We’ve seen tons of Gitman Vintage shirting in the past but the wash is so perfect for the summer that we just couldn’t resist. The detailing’s really well done and of course the course is spot on. It’s slightly fitted, which is exactly the approach you want to take in this hot weather. Close to the skin but not too close.
From Gitman Bros. comes this floral print button down. The timeless fit of Gitman is matched with a print that’s showing its face more and more as this season progresses. We’re not complaining as this specific style is really subtle and will work well in an array of stylings.
We’re used to seeing Gitman’s extensive shirting offerings on the regular but we’re glad to see the iconic brand dish out other pieces to compliment their bread and butter. This unstructured blazer is really something else as it’s made from Japanese organic cotton with the end result being an indigo oxford shell that’s extremely wearable year-round. The slim fit and single vent back are both things we’d expect from our go-to blazer and this one’s got it.
Gitman Brothers knows how to make the perfect-fitting button down and this oxford is nothing less than what we’ve come to expect from the brand. As for this particular piece, we’re really digging the finish and the overall construction. Keeping a khaki button down in your closet will surely be one your most solid investments ever. It’s a versatile color that works year round and with an array of colors and fabrics. Winning all across the board, folks.
If you’re hunting for a button down to help you get through the winter months, look no further than this tweed sport shirt from Gitman Vintage. It’s woven from wool donegal tweed, a go-to fabric when the temp starts dropping. Beyond the fabric is just the overall aesthete of the shirt. It looks great and Gitman’s trim-cut is impeccable.
The Gitman Bros. continue to pull timeless pieces from their archives as part of their Gitman Vintage line. We’ve checked out a few pieces from their S/S 2011 collection, all of which look to be solid offerings for next spring. The ties and bowties will only fuel the line’s rapidly growing appeal, while the shirts will continue to add value to our wardrobes.

Made in the USA and available in limited quantities, Gitman Vintage‘s duo of short sleeve Pop Over shirts are a great buy. They already provide some of the best madras shirts each season and they’re doing a great job delivering this season as well. “Using the patterns Gitman Vintage used with Seavees sneakers, they have now produced a limited range in their new style, the BD Pop over shirt. Coming in two colours, the light weight, slim fitting shirts offer a great way to bare the heat while keeping your outfit complete with a nice ‘pop’ of colour.”

Adding another fine item to their stockroom, Inventory collaborates with American label Gitman Bros. to bring us their Stockroom’s first shirt with a pattern on it. “While they often have heavy selections of gingham and plaids, tattersalls are usually high on our spring list yet remain somewhat difficult to find.” They most definitely do and making these shirts even more special is the replacement of broadcloth with the 2-ply oxford cloth. The pattern’s great for the sun and the weight and fell will give it priority in your closet all year round.

Debuting its third season, the Gitman Vintage Spring + Summer 2010 collection pays homage to Spring + Summer 1984. In addition to selecting perennial favorites, such as washed solid and striped oxfords and a range of colorful chambrays, the team over at Gitman Bros. also chose some timeless fabrics from the past: antique seersucker, cotton madras, bright cabana stripes, short sleeve formal in double-washed denim and some decidedly fun patch work madras.
All are available in Gitman classic button-down, round or key collar, long sleeve or short. If I could afford, I’d grab all thirty-plus shirts. Their fit is unmatched and the styles are great for the coming seasons. Not much else you can ask for, amiright?

New York Times’ T Magazine highlights some of our favorite American labels in an editorial entitled, “Style Made in America”. This editorial might as well be called, “Holiday Gifts for Por Homme”, just a thought. Pieces include Gitman Vintage ties, Cole, Rood & Haan bags, and a Penfield vest made in collaboration with Japanese label Edifice. The American menswear movement has long been recognized by us and I’m sure most of you but we never get tired of seeing all-American labels make headlines.
