Hallmark Details of a Gitman Shirt

Hand-set Collars and Cuffs

A sturdy top-fused interlining provides our collars and cuffs with a strong shape before being set by hand for a precise and crisp look.

High Stitch Count

Our shirts are produced with a minimum of 18 stitches per inch resulting in stronger seams and a more durable garment.

Superior Fabrics

Our fabrics are sourced and designed to our specifications from all over the world, using the finest pure finish cottons and linens.

More than 80 minutes and 50 steps go into the creation of a Gitman shirt, which is made of 25 separate pieces.

Inside Our Process

Receiving

Bolts of fabric arrive from around the world before being rolled out and inspected with the utmost attention to detail.

Cutting

These fabrics then move to the cutting floor where they are spread and cut into the 25 different pieces that make up a Gitman shirt.

Finishing

The pieces are then dispersed throughout the factory and our sewers continue the 50 step process as the shirt begins to take shape.

Inspection

Every shirt is hand-trimmed and examined for quality and consistency before being steamed, hand-folded and packaged.

Placket

A placket front uses a separate piece of fabric to hold the buttons in place and add stability to the front of the shirt.
