We may be witnessing it at this very moment, thanks to the label’s new collaboration with J.Crew.
But Gitman, renowned for pushing unabashedly bold patterns and for being one of America’s last-standing shirtmakers, is no stranger to teamwork. Over the years they’ve partnered with everyone from Jack Spade to Opening Ceremony.
Some wardrobe staples have gone in and out of style many times over the course of their existences. But on-trend or not, they’ll always have a place in our hearts, and likely always make their way back into our good graces at some point in the great wheel of style. We want to take a look at some of these eternal gems, where they came from and how you can get them now. We call it The Revolutionary Wore.
Which is great news, considering the only way you could get your own custom Gitman Vintage shirt until now was by visiting them in Pennsylvania, catching them at a trunk show or opening a hip men’s shop.
Now it’s all online with a slick interface that makes it way too easy to turn your favorite oxford cloth, chambray and indigo patchwork from the Gitman archives into button-down popovers.
The boys over at Gitman Vintage and Unionmade are at it again—this time teaming up for their first-ever suiting collection, introducing the Harrison suit as the headliner.
They’ve got five weaves and colors to choose from for the set, in addition to navy hopsack and seersucker takes on the slimly notched lapel jacket. To complement all that handsome: a myriad of gingham, chambray and broadcloth shirts/pocket squares, along with a couple handfuls of new silk ties.

Fact: it takes quite the set of cojones to pull off wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
Also fact: most men don’t have ’em.
That being said, there are some real pros out there who do. And right now, we’d like to honor these brave souls who’ve unwaveringly taken up the charge. Through painstaking research—no scene left unexamined, no paparazzi shot ignored—we’ve uncovered the best and boldest examples of tropical-print artistry. A testament to confidence, these men are standards to aspire to. (At least when it comes to visually making a statement.)
Around Derby weekend, the seersucker suit gets all the attention.
But the fabric itself is so versatile—and cooling, with its uneven weave lifting the cotton off your skin and leaving hundreds of tiny pockets of air to cool you. So, in the event you’d like to outfit another part of your body with seersucker—say, your neck, or your feet—we’ve gone ahead and found enough gear to swathe you from head to toe in the legendarily cooling fabric. Now, we’re not saying you should try wearing every single piece here at once...
