This morning, Gant opens the doors to its first standalone Rugger shop in the West Village. The 700 sq. foot space is at 353 Bleecker St and presents a vintage/industrial feel with much inspiration from its New Haven, CT factory. The dressing room’s made to look like an office, table lamp and all, while on the floor, you’ll notice worn wood shelving and vintage furniture. Rugger designer Christopher Bastin put it best saying, “We’re not about creating vintage. We’re about modernizing everything that we loved about Gant’s history for today’s guy.” If you get a chance today, head to the new shop, welcome the guys to the neighborhood and take a look at the wonderful lineup of madras plaid shirts, oxford button-downs, cable knit sweaters and varsity jackets.
