Gitman Brothers has been tapped to manufacture shirts for Rufus Apparel.

Starting the fall 2009 season, the company’s Pennsylvania factory will produce and warehouse Rufus’s contemporary wovens best known for contrast stitching and eclectic styling.

“Rufus Apparel has stuck a chord in the department/better specialty store community and is becoming a leader in the segment of dressy sport shirts,” said John Minahan, chief executive office of Gitman. “Their eye for uncompromised quality and USA heritage makes them a perfect company to manufacture for. We are proud they chose us.”

This is the latest contract for Gitman, a part of the Individualized Apparel Group, which landed a contract to make Thom Browne shirts last year.

Gitman will continue to produce its heritage line of wovens.
