Gant by Michael Bastian Sample Sale: Discounted Fall Wardrobe
Gant, the elegant combination of European sensibilities and American style, is holding a sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue in New York at a perfect time for fall. If you’ve wanted to own that stylish leather jacket or an incredible pair of leather boots without spending the entirety of your next 6 months’ paycheck, look no further. The Gant sample sale features discounts as steep as 80%. At times, it feels like the price tags are stolen from JC Penney but then you look around to see a crowd that is extremely well versed with the fashion world and you know you are staring down a global brand whose products anyone should be proud to own.
One interesting aspect of this particular sample sale that sets it apart from the crowd is the selection of menswear and accessories for men. If you thought men’s fashion is limited in its scope, you’ve certainly not visited this Gant by Michael Bastian sample sale yet! That doesn’t mean there was nothing for the ladies – there was a great selection of womenswear and some cool accessories as well. With fall fast approaching, this is a great sample sale to shop at.
Some of the highlights of this sale are a good selection of accessories along with items of clothing, so you can practically create your fall wardrobe on this single sale.
Expect some crowds here. If a sale says you can only take 5 items to the dressing room and spend not more than 5 minutes there, they mean business.
The discounts are steepest for men’s jackets and blazers. I saw a pretty brown blazer selling for $175 with an original price of $1500. Very few items had the original price displayed on them, so it was hard to know the discounts, but almost every item of clothing was at least a 50% discount from its original price. Regular men’s blazers were selling for $175 and women’s blazers for $150. There was a nice collection of quilted vests, all selling for $75.
There was also a very good selection of sweaters. The cotton contrast shawlcollar white sweater was selling for $50, marked down from an original price of $165. A pretty lambswool barstripe crew sweater stood out as well. The MB fleece bolero blazer was a highlight in the blazer section in which most products were stylish and elegant.
The pants were all selling for $50, with the original price as high as $200 on many of those. The jeans were perfect for the fall weather.
The women’s section wasn’t loaded with a lot of variety but the selection was good. Wool sweaters were selling for $50. There were some pretty short sleeve polos for casual wear selling for $25 and some cute tank tops for $20. More elegant silk dresses were priced at $75.
There were a few products in the children’s section as well, with children’s tops selling for $20 and children’s bottoms selling for $15.
The accessories section was loaded with goodies, from a small selection of shoes and boots to a vast collection of ties and belts, all reasonably priced. Large leather bags were for $125 while the smaller ones were priced at $75. Small accessories like keychains and badge holders were all for a flat $15 price
