    GANT Rugger has always been a favorite among preppy city and country guys gents alike, but now the brand is taking things to the outer boroughs — and we couldn't be happier. The fall '13 collection, aptly titled "Brooklyn Luxe," culls inspiration from life and culture across the East River, as well as the borough's up-and-coming food artisans (Think: the guys behind Sussman Brothers, Kings County Distillery, and The Brooklyn Salsa Company). Drawing from hipster chefs may seem like a bit of a departure for the typically buttoned-up brand, but it's part of the label's aim to explore the common ground between food and American sportswear.

Our personal favorites include the printed sweaters, varsity jackets, and perfectly tailored blazers, all sure to be insta-wardrobe staples in and out of the kitchen. Feeling hungry? GANT will be rolling out brand new resto partnerships and exclusive products for fashionable foodies — watch this space for all the deets. For now, though, take a peek at the newest lookbook, and let's hear it for the (BK) boys.
