Gitman Bros. x Penfield Autumn/Winter 2010 ‘Made in USA’ shirt

September 29, 2010

It was only last week that I was featuring Penfield’s new season ‘Tweed’ collection, well I’m featuring them again but this time for the collaboration they’ve recently done with the brilliant shirt makers Gitman Bros.

There are two shirts in the collection, the Woburn, a 100% cotton Oxford in blue and the Flitton which comes in a checked flannel – which I’m featured here in images from the brands Autumn/Winter 2010 shoot, photographed by Neil Bedford.

Both shirts have an eight button placket with contrast detail, traditional chalk buttons (that reference Gitman Bros. shirts from the late 1970’s), a standard collar and a tapered body shape and both feature a chest pocket on the left side. They are then ‘garment washed’ which is said to produce a superior feel and fit and make the shirts more comfortable against the skin.

The Oxford is obviously a staple, traditional fabric and one that needs no introduction (I’m even wearing one as I type this). What is interesting is that Gitman Bros. have gone into their archive for the flannel used on the Flitton, taking it directly from their Autumn/Winter collection of 1982.

The shirts should be available in store and online now. For more information on this and other Penfield collaborations, to find a stockist or to shop online go here: Penfield.

    Cracking shirt, really like the contrast detailing on the placket and on the inside of the yolk. Great fabric, pattern and decent colours too.

    He wants to get them ducks plucked and in the oven though.

    Dreadful, maybe that’s just me though….
