Gitman Vintage Men's
'Looking to the past to inspire the future' is a neat interpretation of the concept behind Gitman Vintage - a division of America’s historic Gitman Bros. Launched in 2008, Gitman Vintage pays tribute to the brand’s rich heritage by delving deep into its own history, which dates back to 1932. Wholeheartedly embracing the tropical zest of the Hawaiian shirt, once a mere punch line, the garment has found high-end cachet at the hands of Gitman's third and fourth generation shirt makers. By dusting off archival pieces and rescuing it from its touristy kitsch connotations, it cleverly reimagines the golden age of the humble Oxford by injecting a bit of Hawaii-in-the-’50s style. From palm fronds and pineapples to voodoo-rific prints, it highlights the artisanal charm of the button-down by pushing the boundaries of traditional shirts and transforming them into de rigueur pieces.
