Gant Rugger opens in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

Gant Rugger
When it comes to classical, time-honoured American clothing brands, Gant is way up there with the greats. Steadfast and timeless. Naturally then, we were thrilled to hear that the brand is planning a huge expansion and has opened a second store in Brooklyn just months after the success of the ‘tasting table’ concept store that opened a few months ago in Williamsburg, which was designed to incorporate collaborations with some of the best local food and spirit companies. Just when you thought retail couldn’t get any dreamier right?

Located in Boerum Hill at 357 Atlantic Avenue, the second Williamsburg store has been designed as a Gant Rugger neighbourhood shop. Though the new store may be a tad cosier than the Williamsburg location, the concept is still designed to push our increasingly foodie-aware buttons: brasserie + clothing = the place to be.

The intimate design of the store successfully beckons in locals, with it’s antiquated central farm table, white tiles, tea stands and exposed brick walls- a style that we have been gravitating towards for some time now. Alongside plates of deliciousness, shoppers will find a curated collection of clothing and accessories from the brand’s Gant Rugger and Gant by Michael Bastian lines.

The brand’s Brooklyn invasion is a welcome one, given the heritage style that recurs each season. As a bonus ode to the district, the brand filmed their Pre Spring 2014 video campaign on the J train over the Williamsburg Bridge. Represent.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

Here are a few ideas on subtly keeping your style intact while protecting against the invasion of pinches the day brings.

We've rounded up our favorite gear picks from our favorite brands for this green-centric holiday. You don't have to go over the top and throw on shamrocks left and right.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
