Flat front cotton chinos
Brand: GANT Rugger
We're all about a classic pair of black or brown brogues, but spring is time for color. And this spring, the coolest way to add some color to your look is from the ground up. Whether your'e talking about a lively pair of lace-ups from Paul Smith or patent-leather derbies in bright blue from Florsheim by Duckie Brown, this sale has plenty of ways to embrace the season's most vibrant trend, plus shirts, pants, suits, and more pieces to help complete the look. Not sure you can pull it off? Check out the slideshow at left, in which NYC creative director Philip Attar shows three compelling ways to stand out in style this season.
Founded in 1949 by a hard-working Ukrainian immigrant named Bernard Gantmacher, GANT built its sterling reputation by revolutionizing the men's dress shirt. Double pleats, locker loops, and other functional features helped the company distinguish its products from those of competing clothing brands and become one of the nation's leading shirt makers. In the 1960s and 1970s GANT popularized casual American sportswear with the Rugger — a striped cotton rugby shirt featuring unbreakable, tackle-proof rubber buttons — as well as trendy madras shirts and and stylish chinos. Originally inspired by the rugby polo, GANT Rugger — the kid sibling to GANT's flagship label -- features denim, jackets, shirts and ties in bold colors and patterns: think a yellow button-down paired with a snappy tartan blazer, or a warm lambswool pullover sweater paired with tortoiseshell sunglasses. Tailored and well-made with a playfully laidback vibe, GANT Rugger is perfect for men whose style strikes the balance between casual and formal. Other GANT lines include the flagship label as well as GANT by Michael Sebastian, Kids, Fragrance, Eyewear, and Footwear.
