A Bit About Us

Gant is a premium lifestyle brand combining American casualwear with European elegance. The company’s values are based on its authentic American East Cost heritage, dating back to the launch of the brand in 1949. Since then the brand has been further developed, taking influence from Europe, and is now a truly global brand.

Gant offers full ranges of clothing for men, women and children. In addition, Gant branded watches, footwear, eyewear and fragrance and home furnishings are designed and marketed by licensees. At present there are 18 Gant stores in the UK. Our lifestyle products are sold at other retail locations, including Harrods, Selfridges, selected branches of John Lewis and House of Fraser, as well as major independent stores throughout the UK.

We are always very keen to hear from enthusiastic, motivated people with a passion for retail and fashion. Opportunities come up in our retail stores, brand corners and head office from time to time, so if there is nothing on our vacancy list that is right for you at the moment, please just send us your CV and we will keep it on file.
