New York-based Michael Bastian, known for his eclectic approach to preppy clothing, teamed up with GANT in 2009 to create a collection led by both parties’ mutual zeal for Ivy League-inspired sportswear. Perfectly cut chinos, faded jeans, preppy polo shirts, snappy blazers and cozy-but-cool sweaters feature heavily in the GANT by Michael Bastian collections. Each season is inspired by a different sport — lacrosse, cross-country skiing, baseball — and both clothing and accessories (think sunglasses, watches belts) are created in keeping with the capsule collection’s concept. GANT by Michael Bastian also produces women’s clothing, geared toward the casually glamorous girlfriend, not little sister, of the GANT man.
If you’re anything like us, right about now you’re probably thinking, “Getting back to work after the holidays has been fun and all, but it’s time to start planning that next getaway.” Fortunately, we’re here to help you do just that. Start with a Filson canvas carry-on, pack it with sweaters, cords, and winter accessories, and then throw in a Wenger pocketknife (as long as you’re not traveling by air), just in case you find yourself further outside the city limits than you had originally anticipated.
Once in a while, we wind up with some items that haven't found their way to a good home. It’s tragic, we know. But don't worry, there’s a silver lining. We’re offering them to you — at steeper-than-ever discounts — so we can make way for new gear. We’ve only got a few of each item in stock, so move fast.
