GANT is a company driven by a simple idea: Never Stop Learning. It’s a belief that has guided them since 1949 when Bernard Gantmacher founded a shirtmaking company in the college town of New Haven, Connecticut.
As the Second World War ended and American soldiers returned home, the country went through a period of rapid change. New tastes and influences in sport and fashion spread across the nation. Radio, TV and magazines introduced people to an active lifestyle they had never dreamed existed. As sports activities influenced many creative tailoring features, the demand for a comfortable look continued to spread.
From Ivy League to American Sportswear, GANT helps define the casual-yet-smart look.
