For 45 years Ganton has been one of Australia's longest running specialist shirt makers.

After a number of years in the fashion business, founder Allan Marmot established the Ganton brand in 1974. We’re still based in Sydney and proudly family owned with Allan's son Justin currently the Managing Director of Ganton. We continue to make many of our shirts here in our Australian factory but we now also work with our partner factory in Thailand to keep up with the demands of the market.

Ganton has evolved over the years and continues to do so today. Twice a year, our design and production team travel the world in search of the latest in fabric technology and manufacturing. As such, we constantly introduce new lines of shirts made with various finishes for best wear and easy care. However, we continue to make our dependable and timeless heritage line, Gold Label shirts, which has been on offer since Ganton's inception.

How to Measure

Our shirt labels indicate fit, collar size and sleeve length. Below are some tips on how to measure yourself so that you can purchase your shirts with confidence.

If you have any queries about measuring please feel free to contact us.


Take one of your best fitting shirts. Lay the collar flat and measure the inside of the collar from the centre of the button to the centre of the buttonhole. Alternatively you can ask someone to measure around your neck, allowing enough room for two fingers to be inserted comfortably between the tape measure and the neck. This should allow for a comfortable fit. This measurement should be your Collar size.


To measure your sleeve length, take one of your best fitting shirts and lay it out flat with the back facing up. Locate the centre of the base of the collar. From this point measure across the top of the shoulder and then measure along the sleeve to the end of the cuff. If the measurement falls between two sizes, choose the longer size.

Note that all measurements are after normal washing of the garment. For more information see FAQ.
