In 1932, 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 up until 1978 when the Gitman Bros. brand was born.
Today, Gitman Bros. is one of the last remaining American shirt makers with all manufacturing still based in the USA. While our methods have evolved with the times, the trademark aspects of our production remain.
The classic Oxfords are made from 100% cotton Cambridge Oxford, a durable cloth that softens when washed but remains virtually indestructible. This fabric was used for the first stock shirt made in 1978, and it's the very same cloth that they use today. This overdye toast Oxford has been dyed twice to create a rich, bold colour and features a classic button down collar, single breast pocket and our signature green stitching on the final button-hole.
