Bernard Gant immigrated to the United States in 1914, and settled in New York. He and his sons, Marty and Elliot Gant, started a family business. From 1941 to 1945, Gant sold men’s jackets, trousers, shirts, shoes and accessories. Gant dress shirts were a necessity for young males in the 1960s. Gant’s shirts were different from others made at that time, because of the Gant loop at the back of the neck. Guys would sometimes detach the loop and give it to their girlfriends as a token of their esteem.
In 1964, Gant started producing making Madras shirts in the standard Gant style. The Gant Madras shirts were the most treasured. Gant opened stores in a number of locations across the country. Gant was soon the biggest shirt producer on the globe. Gant sold the business in the mid-sixties.
