Apparel and Commodities for the Lifestyle of the Modern Man


Posted 1/25/17: A vision for his dream job, Tommy Dant’s passion for fashion was based on what he liked to see in his own closet. Brought to life by his dad, who worked in the construction business, Tommy envisioned how he wanted the store to look. He willed his business to succeed by his genuine desire to make a personal connection with his customers – a reflection of who he is and the fundamental essence of his brand. James Dant – A Store for Men is Tommy’s showroom, his style, and his closet.

Tommy attributes his success to having an excellent and diverse team who contribute to the new creations and visuals in the showroom.  The showroom features levels of customization to create a certain atmosphere for his fashion-forward look.  While featuring over 150 brands, Tommy also has his own self designed clothing line and occasionally will collaborate with other brands. 

He’s environmentally conscious and carries brands like United By Blue and Yellow 108.  For every United By Blue product sold, a pound of trash from our oceans and waterways are removed. Yellow 108 is a brand based out of Los Angeles that specializes in headwear and accessories that are made from salvaged and recycled materials. 

As the sole owner, Tommy built his business from the ground up.  He comes from a family of entrepreneurs and this business will be his legacy.  Inspired by his mother who ran a business from home while Tommy was growing up, he learned the concepts of business.  After working for his dad in construction for ten years, he understood the meaning of hard work which runs throughout his family. Tommy’s four sisters and brother, each running their own businesses, paved the way for what he was preparing to build.

The James Dant brand, named for himself and his dad, constantly aims to be a specialty brand – genuine and always stay true the name. Whether you’re buying experience starts by walking into the store or shopping online, your experience will be enhanced with the help of his staff.  They're dedicated to helping you design your own personal look from casual wear to an evening of cocktails. 

James Dant – A Store for Men is a family owned and operated business since February of 2013.  Tommy is proud to announce that his store is expanding this March 2017. If you are online and need assistance, the James Dant attentive staff is available by phone to help you with your shopping experience.  Please visit the James Dant store at 5624 E Washington St, Indianapolis, Indianapolis 46219 or simply shop online www.jamesdant.com.
