Old School Shirt Makers New York (OSSMNY) is an American designer and manufacturer of sport shirts, bow ties and knitwear + fiber art, headquartered in New York, New York. 

Founder, Kevin Stewart, honed his skills as a designer and menswear specialist through his years as a display artist, stylist and watched fashion director in New York City. 

His acute sense of style and aesthetic led him to start OSSMNY in 2007. Derived from Kevin’s passion for American history and landscapes, OSSMNY has developed into a company known for timeless products inspired by its deep-rooted American point of view. 

In 2014 OSSMNY added creative director, Kay Davis. Her background brought an artistic visual balance to the company and with her keen eye for color, texture and form, new ideas emerged. In 2017 Kevin and Kay introduced Roger Charles, bow ties and K, knitwear + fiber art to the product line. 

We proudly design, produce and manufacturer our collections in the USA and serve customers worldwide. Our shirts and bow ties are made from 100% cotton. The knitwear + fiber art are created primarily from curated natural fibers. Above all else, each offering is hand-crafted with attention to fit, pattern and detail.
