Gant Watches - An original American Sportswear since 1949
The Ukrainian Bernard Gantmacher went to New York in 1949 to start his career in the clothing sector with a age of 17 years. He learned the craft of the collar cutter and also met his future wife, button sewer Rebecca Rose. After he was called overseas in the first world war, he had the plan to establish himself ,with a partner, as a shirt tailor in the New York district of Brooklyn. All of their shirts were embroidered with a "G" embellished with a rhombus - a trademark which had become the Gant logo and a sign of the uncompromising quality, which can still be found today with the Gant watches. The shirt production shot through the ceiling and the brand Gant became more and more popular. His wife and their sons Marty and Elliot, who also learned the tailoring trade, were brought in to the Gant empire. Gant quickly became a well-established sportswear brand, which, in addition to her legendary button-down shirts, expanded her repertoire as well as clothes for the entire family as well as a watch collection.
