A loosely stuffed silk scarf in your breast pocket or a braided leather belt enhances the nonchalant European flair that permeates the collection. The GANT signature preppy features and Ivy League heritage is revealed in the details of a contrast heather yarn piping, collegiate prints and vintage buttons. It’s a mix of soft silhouettes, highly edited items, festive accessories and sophisticated classics- done correctly it breads confident and relaxed comfort in a sporty suave GANT manner.
