INDIGO PLAID BUTTON DOWN RED
A convoluted history brought Rob Roy's tartan from Scotland to Canada to the Dakotas by a buffalo hunter-turned-trader and now a Japanese mill has reinvented the pattern for a modern American flair that could only have been perfected by Gitman Bros. Vintage. Instead of a classic red and black twill weave, the black has been replaced by indigo and medium grey to add an incredible depth that will have you looking at this classic plaid in a whole new way. Brushed for an even softer hand, this Western wear staple takes on a whole new life in a contemporary wardrobe.
- 100% Cotton

There’s a nondescript factory in Ashland, PA that is home to one of America’s last great shirting companies. Gitman Bros. traces it's lineage back to 1930s Brooklyn where founder, Max Gitman, under pressure from union rackets, relocated his company to Pennsylvania's coal country. Gitman trained miner's wives in the craft of traditional shirt making. Today, much of the company’s workforce are descendants of the first generation of workers trained by Max Gitman.
Gitman Vintage draws from swatch books of Gitman Bros. past to curate a collection that is both contemporary and classic. Sourcing textiles from around the world, Gitman's versatile shirting appeals to both those seeking the classic Ivy League oxford or an exciting bold print. All Gitman Vintage shirts feature double-track stitching, chalk buttons, locker-loops, box-pleats and the original 1978 Gitman Bros. label with 'Vintage' sub-label.
