Gant Rugger

This brand's been getting hyped on blogs for a while, but this year saw a visible expansion in retail space, opening a standalone store in NYC's NoLiTa. Combine that with clothing that both average dudes and skinny-hipster types can relate to, and it's easy to see why designer Christopher Bastin's clothes are a hit with kids just setting off for campus, as well as the young adults graduating from it.
