GANT Rugger, Rugger People, J Train Lordz
A ride on the Orient Express has been a dream trip since forever. We did our research, planned our outfits, and were ready to roll - until we realized it was ridiculously expensive! So we activated Plan B - a fancy subway ride on the J train to Williamsburg. Complete with crystal glasses, silverware, a nice bottle of red and pizza from Roberta's. Hear about the ride from the dudes in the campaign.
Name; Noah Emrich
From where; Massachusetts
Q1: What do you do?
I am a photographer, creative director of an independent publisher, and a design student.
Q2: Tell us about the shoot?
It was interesting, I take the J everyday so it felt very out of the ordinary for being so familiar with the train.
Q3: How did you guys make everything work?
We luckily had a few amazingly helpful hands to help out and make sure everything went as planned.
Q4: What's the best memory from the ride?
The absurdity of the crowded train car and us setting up a table with food and a chandelier.
Q5: How was it to have pizza and wine in a subway car?
Good, I think I start always bringing wine for my commute.
Q6: Did anything go wrong?
Well, we're all still alive so I think everything worked out fine.
Q7: How bummed were you we couldn't afford to take you guys to on the real Orient Express
Really pissed actually.
Q8: If you were to go on the real deal Orient Express what would you pack from the GANT Rugger PS14 collection?
Probably all of it, specifically that top coat. I also really like the plaid wrap sport coat, the mac, and the mohair cardigan.
