About Us

Nearly one hundred years of shirtmaking

  Aetna Shirt was founded in Baltimore in 1916, and since then has produced top quality casual, sport, dress and formal shirts for retailers, international designers, and aspiring shirtmakers.   Aetna has traditionally been a wholesale manufacturer of private label shirts, and continues in that path, while also carrying a limited collection of its own shirts.  We offer a diversified portfolio of shirt varieties, including oxford buttons downs, Italian style formals, pilot shirts, and military formals. We have a loyal and experienced staff, and while we maintain traditional individual marking, cutting, and sewing operations, we also offer computerized digitizing, nesting, marking and cutting with twenty-first-century technology and machinery.

Made in the U.S.A.

  Since Aetna's founding in 1916, all of its production has been in Baltimore, Maryland, initially downtown on Paca Street, and then in eastern Baltimore County.  In February of 2019, Aetna Shirt was sold to famed clothier Gitman Bros of the Tom James network. They now continue the history of quality above all else for garments made in the USA.
