Gant by Michael Bastian | Gingham Sport Shirt

November 11, 2012

Michael Bastian’s F/W collection for Gant is themed “The Lucky Ones” and after getting my hands on his poplin popover, I indeed feel fortunate. Few folks pay attention to the designing details quite like Michael Bastian and that is revealed in his Mini Gingham Poplin Shirt. Thoughtful subtleties like the MB stitched Gant flag, buttoned side vents, the flap buttoned chest pocket and the Gant embroidered locker loop add to the waggish character that all Bastian attire is known for possessing.

Bastian gives some insight to the process of infusing his own story into his clothing and behind this season’s theme of luck. “This season is probably one of the closest and most personal since it’s based on my own personal memories and experiences of living in Boston while I went to University there; the friends I made, and the unique style of the time (mid ’80s) that seemed to be a perfect balance of classic preppy, sports utility (it’s cold there in the winters) and the fashion influences inspired by the MOD revival that was happening at the time. There’s also another layer to the collection – the idea of luck and the concept of ’today is my lucky day’. Looking back, despite the fact that we were all broke college students, I think we always felt we were very lucky to be together and sharing these experiences in this great city. And that feeling of being lucky – of being blessed somehow – has stuck with me since that time.”

Give the Gingham a look at Nordstrom.
