While I like to think that I am relatively current with heritage clothing brands in the states and abroad, I was pleased to discover Danton during my PDC trip to Tokyo last Spring. Danton is a french workwear brand sold in Japan. I’m not quite sure whether there really is any more Danton sold in France (readers?!) although web retail reports indicate that the company was indeed founded in France in 1931. I came back from Japan with a few different Danton garments including round collar shirts in short and long sleeves. I love that this style combines my favorite shirting elements: round collar, popover design, short cut, and on seam pockets. The garment is unisex; I’ve seen it on offer on several Japanese web shop for women and gents including B-Shop and Woody Company. Depending on the season, you can order this shirt in light chambray or a heavier weight oxford cloth. Now that Rakuten is opening up space to more second hand clothing shops, you can most likely purchase Danton plus shipping to the states for less than $100 (pretty good for an item that you will most likely wear for years to come).
I know that we live in a state of denim elysium but if you are looking for new fabrics and fits,, give this Danton a try.
