Brother & Gent
Back in 2015, from my loft studio in Rochester, I brought to life Menswear brand, Brother & Gent.
It was my vision to build a home-grown men's clothing & accessories label, that offered quality and original design products.
Since then I've personally designed and created various original products. It started primarily with men's accessories, such as pocket squares, scarves, wallets and suchlike. In time I also started on some more urban wear collections of tees, hoodies and hats. It's always been more of a 'passion project' than a business I wish to expand upon. I enjoy the creative side to it, to make something that has some meaning behind it and is viewed as a valued item, rather than a necessity or something that is forgotten about the next day.
I've always said: "We don't need a lot in life, so I believe that the possessions we do own should have some meaning behind them! I hope my work can provide something with sentimental value for people."
For the last few years now I have sold Brother & Gent products via ASOS Marketplace and Etsy. But now, I'm going back to selling these products direct from my own online store. And the new home for that store will be right here on bydangardner.com
Brother & Gent's most recent creation is BoxClub100, which is essentially a limited run of 100 uniquely curated boxes, each containing 5 different men's accessory products from previous Brother & Gent collections - such as ties, wallets, pocket squares, and much, much more. Each box also includes one of my Limited Edition 'Mount Agung' prints.
In time there will be new Brother & Gent products released and added to the B&G store. I am considering creating some products especially for photographers, but we'll see how things go over the next year.
