A lot has changed since GANT was established back in 1949, but their dedication to quality and precise tailoring has ensured they have stayed a firm favourite of the modern day debonair dresser.Originally designed to suit the needs of dapper Ivy League students, the GANT shirt now features in the wardrobe of style-conscious men and women across the world. This season, GANT has taken inspiration from their coastal New England home and crafted a distinctive range of collegiate style shirts, sweaters and blazers in soft sand shades and the unmistakeable Yale blue.
Superbly cut GANT shirts feature bold prints in the signature Yale blue for their SS16 collection.
For women, a subtle maritime theme runs through their SS16 collection with tonal shades of sand and navy. The traditional, yet relaxed cut of this linen blazer embodies the Ivy League look that GANT are famous for. The soft, neutral tone reflects the sandy beaches of New Haven , and the fully lined jacket and functional cuffs means that the sleeves on this chic jacket can be rolled up for a relaxed day time look. The marine theme is neatly presented on the gold GANT buttons of the sailor ribbed top, which feature an anchor detail. This easy-to-wear top is beautifully crafted from 100% cotton, embracing GANT’s commitment to creating garments of the highest quality. One of the more bold offerings from their spring summer collection is this exquisite flowered shirt, perfectly tailored to flatter the feminine figure and easy to wear with a pair of classic chinos or denim jeans. In fact, the beauty of this GANT collection is the wearability and versatility of all the pieces and when combined, they create the perfect preppy style.
Smart casual is the name of the game for the men this season, and GANT’s sporting shirts and relaxed sweaters are ideal for layering as we transition between the seasons. You don’t have to have graduated from a world famous school to pull off the collegiate look, GANT shirts are all you need to achieve that traditional Ivy League style.
