If you've picked up Inventory magazine or have been paying attention to the Stockroom, you might know that we have some Gitman Bros. shirts on the way. It's definitely later than we'd hoped to have them, but ordering the custom fabrics and having to tweak the body and gussets added to the rigid time line. Anyways, better late than never and the shirts are now on their way to our HQ and we couldn't be more excited. Gitman Vintage has quickly become one of the best known oxford shirt suppliers around the world, and for good reason. The shirts have a great fit, are made in the USA, they're tough and they just look great. I don't need to go into the details of why Gitman makes good shirts - but our shirts are particularly good as we've made up a couple fabrics that we couldn't find in the cut we wanted. The navy oxford cloth is a great year-round weight and colour. Although working nicely with dark winter tones, the light coloured buttons keep the shirt very versatile. The chambray BD was just what we needed and offer a great alternative to EG's 19th Century, which has a more boxy, traditional fit. Our chambray is easy to wear and works perfectly with a casual tie. We also tweaked the gusset on the body to find the right height and a great aesthetic. We aren't accepting any more pre-orders for the shirts, but we're hoping they will be available in the Inventory Stockroom by the end of the week.
Note: The final chambray has white stitching throughout and unfortunately didn't show up with the chest pocket button.
