All hail the button-down: GANT's new Rugger boutique at 1702 N Damen Ave's got a ton of them in all sorts of solid and checked varieties. There's also plenty of outerwear in the form of jackets and blazers plus khakis, sweaters and more.
The interior of the shop, the brand's Chicago flagship, is decked out in light wood with bright green vintage pendant lights providing a pop of color. A comfy leather couch and a set of Paul McCobb chairs have been provided for lounging; a smattering of copper pots hangs over a marble cashwrap that could double as a kitchen countertop. Perhaps that's just smart planning for future in-store events.
