Our History

In 1961, two shirt makers, John La Resca and George Zimmerman, launched a small shirt manufacturing business in Paterson, New Jersey.

Their vision was simple: provide America’s best specialty men’s stores with a custom shirt program they could not otherwise initiate on their own.

By crafting a program retailers could feel confident in, remaining true to quality in the finished product, and providing unwavering customer support, Individualized Shirts grew to realize the vision of La Resca and Zimmerman.

For over 55 years Individualized Shirts has been America’s custom shirt maker.  We have proudly served the finest stores in the country while
becoming internationally recognized for the craftsmanship and passion that goes into our product.
