This isn't one of those goofy imported department store shirts with two buttons on the cuffs and a 34/35 sizing.
This is the real deal and others can spot the quality of this shirt at 50m. Stock up while you can.

First, it runs large. I normally wear 17.5 neck, 37 sleeve, and it feels like a 18.5 neck, 38 sleeve. The body is too bagy.
Secondly, the material wrinkles badly. Even after a normal wash and dry, with no delay coming from the dryer, it will need ironed.
Material seems high quality and feels nice, but for the price, I will not order again.

I had heard about Gitman Shirts for some time as they are one of the few shirtmakers left that still manufacture in the USA. With Hathaway all but gone and many other name brands existing in name only such as Hickey Freeman, J.Press, Paul Frederick, and Brooks Bothers-all of which are made in Asian sweatshops it is quite difficult to buy an American made dress shirt-or any USA made shirt for that matter. The color is beautiful and the fit great. However, I have some concerns about Gitman's quality despite it being done here in the US. The cotton is fairly thin and wrinkles quite easily. I wash and iron my own shirts so I hope to get around five years with a shirt usually. I have my doubts about Gitman. I am hoping for three and I suppose for a $50 shirt with STP that's okay. Remember, though, that this shirt retails at full price for about $150 and I don't see it being worth that price. If you send this shirt out to be commercially washed and pressed I couldn't see it lasting for more than a year without fraying at the collar or cuffs. It will also need starch if you have this shirt professionally washed as it crinkles up easier and faster than any cotton shirt I have owned. I hope my predictions are wrong. Nonetheless everyone says I look great in it and it is cool to the skin and comfortable in fit. The tailoring is very precise-no loose ends or threads to trim. I am just unsure of the quality of the cotton which is identified as being imported but not from where. This makes me doubt that it is Egyptian or Sea Island cotton which are two of the best. As stated-I hope I am wrong about the last.
