SAMPLE SALE REPORT:

The GANT Sample Sale Returns
For An Abbreviated Fall Run

GANTsamplesale2
The Shophound doesn't review too many sample sales these days, but the seasonal GANT sale is always a favorite, and it's become something of a sleeper among the guys who are looking for some fresh classics for a particularly sweet price. This season it threw us for a loop of sorts, reverting back to it's traditional, early October date after a much later run last year, but for a shorter, three-day run. Originally set for a smaller space, the sale returned to 260 Fifth Avenue to accommodate more merchandise. It's the second season since this sale moved outside the brand's showroom, and while there's not nearly as much stock as there were at last spring's bountiful sale, there are still plenty of good pieces to be had. We weren't able to be there at the beginning of the V.I.P. preview yesterday, but we managed to make it in at the end of the day, and there were still a few odd fall 2012 samples left from the Gant by Michael Bastian label if you could pick them out of the racks. Mostly what is available is from the main Gant label including plenty of shirts, pants and sweaters along with a nicer than usual selection of casual sportcoats. As we expected, the prices are again a bit higher than they were in the showroom days (click through for a list), but they are still pretty cheap, especially for accessories like ties and belts of which there were quite a few. The sale runs through Saturday, and it's a pretty safe bet that prices will be reduced that day. There is just a bit of women's wear available, mostly from the Bastian collection, but the bulk of the sale is for the guys. Regular Gant fans know that this sale really is mostly samples in sizes M and L, so there is not much of a size slection. Be there at 10 AM on Thursday morning for first pick.

GANT Sample Sale Thursday October 11th through Saturday the 13th at 260 Fifth Avenue between 28th & 29th Streets, Midtown South
