was started by two New York women – Nancy Gibson and Jennifer Murray. Escaping New York City for a weekend on Fire Island, the friends found that they were wearing the same vintage striped, hard-to-find T-shirt from the East Coast brand Robert P. Miller. Summoning up their quintessentially American entrepreneurial spirit, they called the factory that had been producing the shirts since 1906 and convinced them to manufacture a sister label, which they dubbed Edith A. Miller. Like Robert, Edith is 100 percent domestic. The collection consists of striped, cotton tees, dresses, and shorts that are manufactured in the 106-year-old Pennsylvania mill where Robert P. Miller shirts have been produced for decades.
