Launching this week: Gant's Yale Co-Op Shirt Collection, a reissue of the iconic 1960s designs that were once sold at Yale University's bookstore. Created under an official and exclusive licensing agreement with Yale, the 100% cotton semi-lightweight oxford cloth shirts retail for $115 and will be sold, presented in their original packaging, at the Gant stores in New York and New Haven. The shirts will be available for sale at Gant.com in April.
"The Yale Co-Op shirts represent a reconnection with our past," said Gant's USA President and CEO Ari Hoffman in a statement. "In tracing our collegiate roots we have realized just how significant a role Gant Shirtmakers played in the daily lives of Yale students. We want to reconnect to a time generations ago when students, faculty and alumni made Gant oxford button-downs the must-have shirt to own.”
