Gitman has been making high quality shirts right here on American soil since 1978. Their line of Vintage Shirts ($132)
represent a return to their roots, pulling a pattern from their early-80s design book. A combination of both old and new styles, the V-stitch pocket and box pleat create a retro vibe, while the back-collar button and narrow split yolk lend a more modern touch. Risky Business sunglasses not included. [via]
Founded in Cleveland, OH in 1928, Ohio Knitting Mills was at one time one of the country's premiere garment manufacturers, and — lucky for us — put samples of each style they produced post-WWII into storage. Ohio Knitting Mills Sweaters ($88-$148) are those same never-worn samples, now available for purchase. With designs hailing from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, you're sure to find some retro cool amongst this collection of time capsule-worthy threads.

Standing out while fitting in has never looked so good

Dunning Sportswear (worn by Zach Johnson on the PGA Tour) is building off of its golf success with a new lifestyle collection. Specifically, the Performance Wovens shirts ($125) are, in our opinion, the perfect business casual shirt as they include moisture wicking properties, odor control and wrinkle resistance. Great for hot weather and travel, coupled with a soft hand in patterns like gingham, check and oxford.
Travel in style with The Traveller Button-Down Shirt from Thomas Pink ($99; Thomas Pink stores only). Made from premium two-fold cotton, the Traveller sports a special easy care finish that gives it crease resistance while retaining the soft feel and detailing Pink's shirts are known for. Available in classic or slim fits, the Traveller is finished off with a deep breast pocket, keeping travel documents secure and accessible.
Just in time for fall comes the J.Crew Merino Shawl-Collar Sweater ($138). Made from fine Italian merino wool woven in a thick 7-gauge knit and featuring details like woven cotton twill elbow patches and front pocket, real horn buttons, and a shawl collar, it will keep you warm and stylish in the colder months to come.
There's no better, more flexible addition to a fall wardrobe than a nice, comfortable hoodie, and the new line of Marc Ecko Star Wars Hoodies ($58-$98) are at the top of our list. Made from soft, 100% cotton, each features a different design, along with adjustable hoods, ribbed cuffs and waistbands, and front pockets. Our favorites? The Real Trooper and Fett for Real hoodies, which double as lazy-man costumes. In our best gravely Emperor tone: "Gooooood." [Thanks, Danny]
