Twill is a lightly textured fabric with an intricate weave that creates subtle diagonal patterns across the surface. It has a slight sheen and a soft finish that tends to remain relatively resistant to wrinkling.
Originally worn by blue collar workers due its hard wearing nature, chambray is produced by interweaving a colored yarn in the warp and white yarn in the weft to create a textured, denim-like appearance.

It takes fifteen different sewing operations and a total of four separate pressings to get a collar on a Gitman shirt.
Created by polo players in the late 1800’s, the button down collar remains a staple of American style. Our version of this enduring classic stands three inches tall to create a perfect roll with or without a tie.
Our button under collar combines the functionality and silhouette of a button down collar with hidden buttons placed beneath the collar that keep the points firmly in place using small loops of fabric.
The traditional point collar rose to popularity in the 1920’s as the go-to choice for salarymen and others who frequently wore a tie. The narrow spread and elongated points draw the eyes down for a slimming appearance.
One of our most popular styles for dress and sport shirts, the medium spread collar lends itself to both business and casual attire. It’s perfectly at home under a jacket and can also be worn with or without a tie.
The widespread collar is the most modern of the group and well suited to smart business attire. Extra spacing between the collar points draws more attention to the tie and has a broadening effect around the neckline.
First appearing in the 1930’s, the cutaway collar offers a distinct and contemporary look. The shorter stance and wider spread allows the collar to remain neatly tucked under the lapel of a jacket.
