GANT Rugger Spring 2013 Collection

Posted on October 18, 2012

One of each, please! The clothes, not the models. As adorable as they are, they’re positively fetal. First, we’ll let the brand have the floor:

“This season’s GANT Rugger collection is inspired by the American blogger at Pitti Uomo, who dresses the part of the Italian but in an Americano manner. Sharp blazers, be it single-breasted in casual linen or double-breasted in dressy glencheck, are matched with chinos and classic oxford shirts both with button down and spread collars. Summery fabrics like linen, jersey and hopsack are presented in windblown and sunfaded pastels combined with all-American primaries of red, white and blue. Accessories include shantung ties, selvedge madras pocket squares and linen summer scarves, while a black watch tartan car coat is a standout piece in its own remark. After the four-day fair, our blogger continues the journey to the scenic coast at Alassio where he trades his regular sport coat for an unconstructed knit-version that fits just like a cardigan. Summer weight shirts and short bathing trunks are perfect for the beach, and if the Mediterranean night turns a bit chilly cable knit crewnecks in sun tan friendly pastels will do just the trick.

When it comes to mens sportswear, we’d be hard pressed to name a brand we respond to as well as GANT Rugger. We love designer Christopher Bastin’s predilection for telling a story and painting a picture with each collection. And come ON. How can we not love a collection inspired by the American blogger? We’d love to say this description captures our life perfectly, but it’s mostly draw string pants and feeding the cats between frantic postings. Still, it’s a lovely fantasy and like we said, we’ll take one (possibly two, because we’re fighting over who gets what) of each.
