But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
February 14th GANT launched their 7 Rules for a more sustainable relationship to your closet. The rules are simple and really not rules, but more guiding steps and responsibilities each and everyone of us need to make and take under consideration as consumers.
The fashion industry’s environmental impact isn’t something any of us can deny or want to deny for that matter. All we can do is change our behavior. Instead of looking at what fashion can do for you, look at what you can do for fashion. Can you challenge your shopping behavior and the way you look at the clothes already hanging in your closet.
7 Rules of GANT
Making clothes last over seasons and in extension years isn’t only about investing smart. It’s also about taking care of what you got. Keep your favorite pieces fresh longer by follow the washing instructions, not hang them on metal hangers and not hang knitted pieces at all for example.
Repair! Your clothes! Don’t toss bc of a hole or a stain. If you couldn’t get a new one, what would you do? Our parents parents patched and repaired clothes until they literary fell apart. Why do our generation feel like we are entitled to new things all the time?
This is so given to us as Hobnob promotes buying vintage over new in almost every article but we can’t stress this enough. Reuse your garments, from party dresses to knits and make sure you look one step farther when investing in new pieces. Maybe you can get it second hand or vintage?

No joke that the fashion industry waste a lot of water when producing clothes.GANT are taking action to do what they can to conserve and protect this precious resource.

When a garment isn’t doing it for you anymore, remake it.
Please ask my mom how many pair of jeans I have made into shorts and how many jackets that I’ve magically turned into vests.
Recycling clothes should be just as natural as recycling plastic bottles.
Starting November you can bring all your worn out clothes to any GANT store and get them recycled.
Monica Geller once said that rules are good, rules helps control the fun. And in terms of fashion, the fun that are being controlled are us getting more than we actually need.
But the real fun starts when you get creative with what you got.
