About

Gitman Vintage is an American made shirt collection that pays tribute to the brand’s rich heritage with a considered interpretation of the past and present.

A Tribute to Our Past

In 1932, Brooklyn based shirt-maker Max Gitman left New York and opened the Ashland Shirt & Pajama 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, we are one of the few remaining shirt-makers with all our production based in the USA.

Launched in 2008, Gitman Vintage pays tribute to the brand’s rich heritage with a unique interpretation of the past. Each season, we return to the company archives and select fabrics from old line books, tweaking them with dyes and reworking patterns, scale and construction. Our philosophy has always been to bridge the old and the new, so we continue to honor 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.

Through each iteration, our commitment to quality is as important today as it was when Max Gitman and his sons first set up shop in Ashland. Many of our sewers are third and fourth generation shirt makers and their collective expertise is always our most valuable asset.
