Gant Rugger Takes Over the Fat Radish

Like many food-minded New Yorkers, Gant Rugger designer Christopher Bastin is a big fan of the popular Chinatown farm-to-table hot-spot the Fat Radish. Last night, Bastin presented his fall collection in the restaurant's rustic, comfy space, where even the waiters were wearing the brand. The result: both the food and the tailoring were delicious. Below, we break things down.    

The Clothes: The New Work-Wear
Using heavier fabrics, toned down in color, Bastin describes this collection as "the new work-wear for 2012."  Flannels, wools, and denim were crafted into pieces that could easily be incorporated into a man's work or play wardrobe. Standout looks included a smart camel colored suit and a blazer paired with a denim shirt, creating an effortlessly stylish vibe.  Also represented were more traditional pieces, including a double-breasted pinstripe blazer, which the designer managed to make far less formal with his tailoring and fabrics. Bastin, who was absent due to an emergency, sent a note that GANT's director of marketing and PR read aloud and was signed: "Rugger Hugs." The man, like his collection, is all charm.

The Food: Less Hot Air, More Vegetables
Ben Towill and Phil Winser of the Fat Radish want their patrons to live better, and they believe it all starts with what we eat -- especially when it comes to vegetables. Winser says all of their eggs come from a farm where "the chickens really are free range, they run around!"  Similarly, the produce, meat, and all other ingredients used at Radish all have their own provenance, and are special in their own way. Everything we ate last night, and we ate a lot, including a beet crumble and roasted leg of lamb, was special indeed.
