Gant might trace its origins to Europe, with links to Scandinavia and Switzerland, but the styling is very much classic USA.
When Bernard Gant arrived in New York as an immigrant from Ukraine in 1914, he went straight to the garment district in Manhattan and secured his first job as a collar-sewing specialist in a downtown factory. From there, he started selling fine shirts to some of the most respected private labels in America, adding his very own “G” insignia on each search. The rest, as they say, is history and today, Gant clothing is sold across the world.
To showcase just some of the great Gant range, we’ll start off with what made the brand so famous in the first place – classic looking shirts.
This Gant Portifino mens check shirtreally does encompass that classic Gant style, whilst injecting a contemporary, quality feel.
This regular fit checked shirt, with front button fastening and a button down collar looks great when worn both smart and casually and is available in both navy and red.
Styles such as this Gant Short Sleeve Mens Polo and this Bar Stripe Mens Short Sleeve Polo typify the Gant design, looking stylish yet casual in almost any situation. The plain style comes in a range of colours whilst the bar stripe shirt is available in an understated grey and navy.
Finally, we’ll look at something a little more sporty. That’s right, when Gant was approaching New York department stores, he was commissioned by the prestigious Paul Stuart store to create a ‘preppy’ sports look.
The result today is something like this Gant Shadow Stripe mens rugby top, which captures classic rugby fashion perfectly.
With horizontal stripes on a red field and contrasting colour and material on the collar, this shirt really does look fantastic.
