The GANT premium lifestyle brand combines American casualness with European elegance. The company’s values are based on its authentic American East Coast heritage, dating back to the launch of the brand in 1949. Since then the brand has been further developed, taking influence from Europe, and is now a truly global brand. GANT offers full ranges of clothing for men, women, and children. In addition, GANT branded watches, footwear, eyewear, fragrances and home furnishings are designed and marketed by licensees.
GANT’s history began when Bernard Gant started making shirts in New Haven, CT. He quickly turned his passion for quality and design into the business of making casual sportswear. His sons, Marty and Elliot, later joined the company and retained their father’s dedication to garment craftsmanship and attention to detail. Still today, Bernard Gant is the source of inspiration behind GANT’s core brand values – integrity, refinement, character, understanding and optimism.
GANT has a history of strong international growth and is today established in over 70 countries through more than 600 GANT stores and a large number of selected premium retailers.
