Over 40 years ago, the Gitman family started making some of the country’s best button down shirts and to this day they remain, continuing the legacy they established: one of the few left in North America. To hallmark those original collections from the late 70’s into the early 80’s, we have a selection of warm weather style staples straight out of the archives. Gitman is all about the reimagination of vintage and this collection of button downs boasts iconic examples. First off, in two uniquely produced Japanese prints for those looking for subtle pops of flair with a heritage backbone, we have the yarn dyed Indigo woven Bandana print and an authentically produced window Batik Block print short sleeve. Then on the classic side of things, we present a pair of Archive Madras plaids in versatile colorways that will evolve nicely through years of utility for those ivy stylers, the venerable Chambray Linen to provide a lightweight and breathable denim-esque staple, and a re-release of our Slub Poplin collaborations that offer some texture and tonal character in a unique grid check that’s tangible to the touch.
We are pleased to present the first edition of a new Guidebook feature, the Division Road Uniform (DRU) Field Guide, for a virtual look into what we’re wearing in shop on the daily as we’re busy doing some of the duties that keep this whole machine running. Since even our local customers are living the remote life, we wanted to provide that feeling of being at Division Road and give a glimpse into the style, life, and work of the DRA. One thing that’s easily visible is the fact that we curate and design with a wardrobe-based mentality for a single uniform aesthetic, so every piece is relatable, regardless of style category or inspiration. You'll see some old and new pieces intermixed with samples yet to come, reinforcing that if you see something that grabs you, grab it, as we specialize in low volume producers and rarities that never go out of style. Heritage goods are not only utilitarian, but a reflection of lives and style journeys as signature armaments made to last for both the collector and minimalist alike. From the cool guy coffee grabber, workwear ivy-styled gent running to the post office, tailored and layered for taking in or sending out goods, or conducting Operation Dog Walk, there are endless story and styling profile explorations to be had on the Division Road.
