Gant to Celebrate 70th Anniversary in Overseas Markets

Gant is gearing up to celebrate its 70th anniversary, but the festivities will be centered around its strongest markets in Europe and Asia rather than where it all started: Connecticut.
The brand traces its roots to 1949 when Bernard Gantmacher, an immigrant from the Netherlands, and his two sons, Marty and Elliot, opened a shirt factory in New Haven, Conn., and began selling a button-down shirt to the broader American market. It was embraced early on by the Ivy League students at the East Coast universities and soon became a key part of the preppy uniform.
But for the last decade, the brand has been owned by the family-owned Swiss company Maus Frères, which also owns Lacoste and Aigle. Its net sales in 2014 were $ 1 billion. And while it has a presence in 70 countries and operates 93 stores, its U.S. distribution is limited to mainly e-commerce, and four full-price stores and two outlets.
Under former chief executive officer Patrik Nilsson, the brand three years ago set into motion a plan to reintroduce Gant to its home country. But those efforts largely failed and the company is retrenching and refocusing its energies internationally.
Nilsson exited the brand last June and Brian Grevy, the chief

Dad Overseas Ensures 5-Year-Old Has Magical Date For Father-Daughter Dance

When a dad overseas couldn’t attend his daughter’s dance at school, he came up with a solution fit for a Disney princess

On April 28, 5-year-old Gracee Nelson attended her school’s father-daughter dance in El Paso, Texas, with an unexpected guest. Her father, Christopher Nelson, is in Afghanistan for a year-long stay as a contractor for the Army. He knew he wouldn’t be able to attend the dance with his daughter, so he worked with his wife, Lanya Nelson, to come up with a plan. 

“Once I realized how much the dance meant to her I told my husband and he wanted to make sure she’d still be able to go,” Lanya told HuffPost.

Christopher and Lanya first suggested that Gracee take her uncle or grandfather, but they soon realized it would be too difficult since they live too far away. After thinking about the dance’s theme, which was “Beauty and the Beast,” the parents decided to get the Beast to accompany Gracee to the dance.

After the parents got Gracee’s school’s approval for the surprise, they found an event company that would accommodate her request. Lanya first hinted at the idea to make sure her daughter would be comfortable with someone else taking her. Then at the dance, the Beast surprised Gracee.

“She thought the real Beast from Disney World came all the way down just for her because ‘Daddy asked,’” Lanya said.

Lanya told HuffPost that Gracee had a blast at the dance. She danced with the Beast and was able to FaceTime with her dad.

“The beast made her night such a memorable experience,” Lanya said. “She was filled with so much joy.”

Lanya said she and her husband were especially glad they were able to come up with such a fun solution for their daughter. 

“She had the time of her life and our hearts were happy knowing we didn’t let her down.”
