Style Spy: Gitman Bros. put a modern spin on the classic chambray shirt
By Nicholas Mizera
Gitman Bros. Vintage are known for their high-quality men’s shirts
The master shirt-makers of Gitman Bros. Vintage know a thing or two about making classics stand out, so we pay attention when they opt to put a progressive spin on them.
Lightweight chambray shirts should make their way into every guy's wardrobe in the summer, and Gitman’s U.S. Open three-quarter-length chambray shirt is cool variation on the theme. We found this one at Nomad on Queen West, where it retails for $195.
While it may be cut from the same classic cloth we know and love, Gitman's version sports a pub collar and shorter-than-usual sleeves that are just screaming to be rolled once or twice. Pair it with some contrasting, faded, rust-coloured chinos and suede desert boots for the ultimate summer casual look with a workwear vibe.
Oh, and embrace the wrinkles: with time, a good chambray shirt breaks in just like your denim.
$195. Available at Nomad, 819 Queen St. W., 416-202-8777.
