It has been a long, hot, hot summer. GANT thinks so too. For their fall/winter collection, they ride off to the Cape (on a 1971 Triumph no less) to do what the heat has cruelly kept us from doing—camp. With the epic, yet-to-be-released tune "Equestrian" by U.S. Royalty, not only is Rugger’s fall/winter cinematography set against a cool palette of grays and earth-tones but so is the collection. Plaids, tweeds and wool in fair-isle patterns dot the wintry landscape. Quintessential American sportswear. John Thornley, U.S. Royalty’s lead singer, joins the gang over dinner and drinks in an autumn mainstay corduroy blazer. If you are eyeing the burgundy varsity jacket, ring the GANT Rugger shop on Bleecker (212.620.5949) to get your name on the list. It is due to arrive at the end of September, just as northeast temperatures begin to fall.
