Now Open | GANT Rugger Venice, California Store

GANT Rugger Opens Venice, California Store

GANT has finally opened the doors to its first West Coast store, as they look to call Venice their new home. The space is 1,700 square feet and was designed as a GANT Rugger neighbor shop so it has all the personal touches. To add to the appeal, local Venice Beach craftsman, Eric Gustafson, was commissioned to create several modern fixtures for the shop made from brass, wood, and inlaid tile. Additional fixtures include several 1950’s teak pieces and other mid century elements.

The trip west is long overdue in our opinion as Los Angeles has been a top market for GANT for quite sometime. The shop will carry GANT Rugger and GANT by Michael Bastian men’s and women’s collections. More looks at the shop below.

The Tailor Shop goes above and beyond what we’ve seen in the past and offers full customization for all Levi’s denim products, from the jeans to the jackets. ACL also tells us there is now an in-house chain stitch machine, an embroidery machine and a darning machine, and customers are able to make their own buttons, choose vintage patches, and screen print to fully customize their jeans.

Also on display are 50 vintage trucker jackets with chain stitch embroidery, collections of vintage labels, back packets, back patches and an array of famous Levi’s red tabs.

Steve McQueen Car Show at the Boys Republic in Chino Hills, CA

Friends of McQueen Car Show Hosted by Boys Republic

Every year, Boys Republic, a school out in Chino Hills, CA hosts a car show in Steve McQueen‘s honor. Why Steve, you ask? Well, he’s the school’s most distinct student, as he spent a few years at the institution during his childhood. He gave much credit to the place and made sure they never forgot him and they haven’t. The doors are still open, thanks partially to McQueen and the crowd is still at a respectable number. We definitely hope that never changes.
