Spotlight on GANT Menswear

Jarrold  proudly stocks  many fantastic menswear brands, one being the pioneering American brand GANT.



The luxury brand was founded in 1949 on the east coast of America and began with the production of the  simple button-down shirt which they have not stopped reinventing today. GANT’s distinctive approach to dressing and modern style takes inspiration from the college student style in the late 1940s, igniting a global phenomenon - the preppy aesthetic. The successful combination of classic menswear and American sportswear is a unique fusion, perfected over seven decades of innovation.

This year the international brand celebrates its 70th anniversary. Paying tribute to its heritage, this season GANT have taken inspiration from the past, highlighting their perennial preppy icons. Blurring the lines between the workweek and the weekend, this year’s Autumn/Winter collection embraces our modern lifestyle, encouraging you to mix and match smart and casual pieces. Past archives have informed the choice of colours this season, you will see an abundance of bold university colours including sporty reds, blues and rich yellows amongst subtle seasonal tones.

From the various GANT clothing icons, we have selected some of our favourites that you will want to incorporate in your winter wardrobe. Honouring the old, the Heavy Rugger shirt has been revived this season with Breton stripes. This collegiate classic features all of the traditional rugby shirt elements including twill collar and rubber buttons. The button-down shirt has been reimagined countless times however, GANT have created a beautifully crafted and refined design in both traditional colours and wintery plaids. Another quintessential piece from the collection is the classic chino, a modern wardrobe staple that can be paired with anything from pique polos to sophisticated cotton rib crew neck sweaters. For the colder months to come, wrap up with one of the many luxurious wool scarves in rich tones.
