A store tour of Gant Rugger, Bleecker Street, New York City

So I’ve shown you the Gant Flagship store on Fifth avenue…very nice,  no?  Well get ready for something that’s equally impressive in design and stock! The Gant Rugger store is located on New York’s trendy Bleecker Street and is a store that has more personality than any I have ever encountered before. Gant Rugger is a collection, under the Gant umbrella, that was launched in the 1970s.  This is a younger, more laid back line.  I know I may be slapped for saying this but the brand reminds me of Abercrombie and Fitch, only the design and quality makes Abercrombie look like child’s play. So, all you frustrated “preppy shoppers” looking for a brand switcheroo…this is the answer.  Unfortunately, Gant Rugger is only for men.  

Now, it may be only designed for men but I could have dropped a few thousand in there on myself. The shirts, pants and jackets can easily be worn by women who want to rock the androgynous look for the new season. Their button down shirts would also look amazing with skinny jeans and a pair of knee high boots. Oh and their shawl collar sweaters have a special place in my heart!

Take a look at the amazing store fittings as well as the most amazing dressing room I’ve ever come into contact with…
