Spending my time at the beach of Key West, I read this story about the new recruits, in the Esquire Big Black Book, Spring 2010. It's all about how three designers bring bold new ideas to brands with big pasts. There is a story about Alex Carleton for L.L. Bean, Alex also has his own brand called Rogue's Gallery. A story about Mark McNiary for Bass, who also designs for J.Press and his own label. And last, but certainly, not least Christopher Bastin for Gant Rugger. I learned to know Christopher as the shirtdoctor of GANT and from now on he is Mr. Gant Rugger for me.
