Gant's latest outpost sees the still-on-fire brand heading to the Midwest, opening in Chicago's hip Bucktown neighborhood. This latest expansion brings the Rugger store concept to Second City but blows it out with a 2000 square foot space that stocks the complete Rugger line of clothing and accessories plus the brand's ongoing collaboration with Michael Bastian. The store's interior is as covetable as the clothes; a mashup of mid-century Danish furniture, repurposed barn wood and schoolhouse doors, and kitchen accessories that give a nod to Rugger's foodie fascination. Stylish Chicagoans should stop by today to get their hands on Rugger's crazy good army-inspired Pre-Fall '13 lineup that'll fight off winter wardrobe fatigue when the temperatures start to drop.
Gant is located at 1702 N Damen Avenue in Chicago.
