Max Gitman opened the Ashland Shirt & Pajama Company in Ashland, Pennsylvania in 1932. His two sons, in 1978, turned that into the brand we know today as the Gitman Brothers. The brand has long been a mainstay here at Service. Season after season, the brothers have consistently made beautiful, vintage inspired shirts that we’re proud to carry. Their many years of experience making well-constructed, comfortable shirts show in the Gitman Vintage Fall/Winter 2015 collection.

New arrivals include a beautiful wool overshirt with a hidden button down collar, in addition to several plaids and ginghams with rich colors perfect for the upcoming cool weather. We’ve also introduced a light-weight, grey flannel, and a selection from Gitman Vintage’s ‘Seed To Sew’ collection.

With the ‘Seed To Sew’ collection, Gitman embraces their roots by making shirts with 100% American made materials. Everything about these shirts, from the cotton grown in American soil to the shirt factories in Pennsylvania, is made in the USA. 

These new arrivals have us excited about cooler weather and American craftsmanship. Come on in to the shop and check out these new styles.

Matthew, who's been at Service for a year and a half, moved to Austin from FLA when we was only one year old! When he's not working, Matthew plays soccer (It's been said he has a great soccer ass), and designs men's bags. He's been named the store's songbird; his specialties being Kate Bush and Mariah Carey. 

Where else do you shop besides Service? What? I don't have anything left over after all my purchases at Service!

Are you feeling Christmas-y? No, the weather has been too hot. The cold the last few days has helped though.

What are your favorite holiday movies? Home Alone, the Rudolph one, and Misery.

Where's your favorite place in Austin to hang out? Most days you can find me playing cribbage at Centennial Park with my friend Vance Bondurant III. (Matthew is also the store's resident comedian!).


Matthew is wearing:

Penguin, window plaid blazer

Gitman Vintage, long sleeve over-dye dobby

Hartford, green corduroy pants

Florsheim, wingtip boot

Nixon, mellor cream watch

NEW GITMAN VINTAGE September 19 2012

New Gitman Vintage long sleeve button downs have arrived.


Each season, Gitman Vintage base their designs on line-books from the late 1970's focusing on patterns and fabrics from a specific year and include details from original collections including double track stitching and the original branded label.

Gitman keeps their designs relevant with updated, modern, and slimmer cuts for today's customer. Every piece is made in the USA, and goes through up to 50 steps to manufacture. A process that takes about 80 minutes from beginning to end!

Service is offering short sleeve Gitman Vintage oxfords in subtle polka dots in grey or white and a classic vertical broken stripe pattern. 

Gitman Vintage is all about attention to detail with their expert craftsmanship and subtle patterns.
