About Us

Maker of fine women’s shirts since 1994

The first line of clothing from Jill McGowan, Inc. was a series of white shirts. This line was inspired by her work as a patternmaker in the men’s shirt industry. After comparing her work on men’s shirts to women’s clothing of equal price, she recognized the genuine need to improve the standard of women’s clothing.
Jill’s shirts and seasonal collections are available online and in specialty stores throughout the United States. Jill McGowan opened her flagship store in Portland Maine in 2019.  All Jill McGowan products are Made in the USA. Jill and her team operate Jill McGowan, Inc. from their corporate office in Portland, Maine.
