Approached at the end of summer by all-American brand GANT, we wanted to do two things with our fashion supplement; showcase GANT’s range of autumn/ winter clothing, and explore the tagline “Change the World, Not the Shirt.”

You can’t beat the crisp, plain lines of a beautiful white shirt; styled over or under other layers, tucked in or out, classic or slightly quirky. Using some of the most beautiful locations in Oxford (all indoor shots taken at the Oxford Union), we created a classic background against which the tailoring and quality of the GANT clothing speaks for itself.

Here, we approached five Oxford undergraduates, all studying for different degrees, and all making waves in their creative involvement outside of their respective courses.
