Reanimating extinct creatures can have terrifying consequences, from having your lawyer ignominiously toilet-served by a rampaging T-Rex, to watching in horror as...Brendan Fraser! Bringing back shirts with terrifyingly awesome results, Gitman Vintage.
50-plus years in the button-down game and one of the last remaining shirtmakers to manufacture entirely in the US, Gitman just reanimated selected fabrics from their 1982 Spring/Summer line to create their inaugural Vintage collection, proving lazy nostalgia to be the absentee-father-who-sometimes-shows-up-on-X-mas of invention. The 100% cotton shirts're re-cut with an eye toward today's slimmer fit, but pay homage to their OG predecessors through retro design deets like double track stitching, chalk buttons, straight back yokes w/ box pleats, and locker loops, which you will no longer be left hanging from thanks to today's slimmer you. While there's a handful of solid standards like blue and light pink, history's more evident in the plaids, including big-checked combos like brown/aqua, cream w/ light-n-dark blues, and standard blue-and-red, as well as startlingly bold combos like teal/pink/orange, because sometimes even lumberjacks throw up from eating too much sherbet.
While they can't replicate '82 prices, Git keeps the damage on the reasonable side of luxe torso swaddlings while still offering superior construction, a previously extinct business model whose consequences are positively awesome for the consumer...until the shirts learn how to hunt in packs.
