In 1949, Bernard Gant, a Ukrainian shirt maker who crafted button-downs for such stores as J.Press and Brooks Brothers, started an eponymous line of American sportswear. He relocated to New Haven, Connecticut where his shirts (with such signature details as locker loops and a tie-securing button on the back of the collar) quickly gained a following at Ivy League campus stores. The clothes eventually ended up on everyone from your father to designer Michael Bastian, who'll debut a co-branded range for Gant next fall. To celebrate their 60 years, the company is releasing a commemorative set of six shirts chosen from their archives. Each design represents a different decade—from an oxford cloth pullover and a cashmere-blended flannel to an original slim-fitting "hugger" and a combination rugby/button-down. And while they stem from vintage designs, each has the timeless quality that's kept Gant around for this long.
