Gant x The Sartorialist | A Continuous Lean.

Gant x The Sartorialist

Aug 22nd, 2008 | Categories: Men's wear, New York City, Style | by Michael Williams

Gant, the preppy purveyor of American style, teamed up with Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist to produce a sort of look-book-meets-street-style photo spread of fashionable New Yorkers. The ten well edited participants each choose pieces from the autumn Gant collection to compliment their personal style. Then Mr. Schuman went to work, and the results are just as wonderful as one would expect. The New Haven founded and Swedish owned (or is it French owned now?) Gant seems to have the magic touch these days, wildly successful partnerships, great products and smart marketing. Well played Gant, well played.

Below: Luke Forbes, actor by trade, would fit right in at Glastonbury.

Below: MacDonald Steffen Huelster of Brooklyn. I own that bag (Jack Spade) and those boots (Red Wing). Looks like I would fit right-in in Bushwick.

Very chic.

    Love the concept. Love Gant’s fall collection. And Scott, as always, makes everyone look so cool and gorgeous. But where’s the info on what they’re wearing? Isn’t the idea here to sell some clothes?

    WOW! I love these outfits and I love that men’s sweater in the middle.

    The darling girl is on the same Vespa I have…clearly I need to step it up a notch when I ride!

    I’m sorry but Ican’t agree. I love the Sartorialist blog, and like most of what Gant does as well, but the models just seem awful. Especially the King of Kings [County] – even if he’s trying to be ironic.

    Dear ACL,
    Wonderful blog. I have spent my last 2 days endlessly reading the archives in your blog. Very interesting. I love the flickr find column. I have added your link to my blog’s link list. Hope that’s okay.

    Have to agree with Kempt on this – MacDonald Three Name Whatsit needs to check himself. These pictures are great, but what do they have to do with Gant?
