The Gaitskill


Named after the peerless author Mary Gaitskill, this tunic-style shirt features 3/4 length sleeves and a removable cummerbund belt. Dressed up or down, this will always be the most elegant solution to any wardrobe crisis, and might help you finally finish that roman à clef.  Check out our size chart or "Fit and Care" for size guidance.

Our shirts can be dry cleaned but do not require it. All can be machine washed on cold with like colors. Hang dry and learn to hone your ironing skills!

The Gaitskill Tunic is essential for its versatility. Perfect over skinny pants or jeans belted or tucked in the front. We all need a few more options to cover our bums so here you have it.  Another great item for early spring thanks to the  substantial weight of the Japanese cotton.
