James Dant is the modern, rugged, rustic portrait of the classic menswear store. The idea for the store started around 10 years ago and has just begun to come to fruition. This all started when a 13-year-old boy couldn't find a proper store to outfit his clothing/lifestyle needs in Indianapolis. The evolution of James Dant is a story in itself, but for now we'll stick with the more recent past. Tommy Dant, owner and CEO, graduated from Ball State University in 2013 with an award winning business plan and degree in entrepreneurship. That plan developed into what is known as James Dant. This retail dream has finally turned into business reality, filling a void in Indy's male fashion market.
James Dant hosts brands from all over the world in order to form one cohesive image of the contemporary, urban, street, indie wearer. The showroom is as rugged and rustic as possible with reclaimed wood, open ceiling concept, and an overall masculine vibe that gives the store a workshop feel. The sights, sounds, and smells are all pieces to the puzzle of Indy's first casual store for men.
