DANTON have been making clothes in France for over 80 years. They began as wholesalers providing workwear garments such as overalls, workwear jackets and trousers and aprons. The brand is associated with their high quality craftsmanship and utilitarian functionality. This reputation led them to be chosen to produce workwear for French Public administrations and public utilities such as R.A.T.P (Parisian Metro) and S.N.F.P (French Railways) as well as The City Of Paris, further solidifying their workwear Heritage.
In recent years the brand has garnered a significant following in Japan, to such an extent that all of the brands distribution is now handled in Japan and many of the designs, fabrics and styles are informed by Japanese workwear culture. The result is a unique blend between French traditional workwear with Japanese dedication to using the best available materials creating modern workwear staples.
