Park & Bond will be merged with the company’s original Gilt Man business. The transition will take place after the holidays, and it is unclear whether the Park & Bond brand will continue in any capacity.

Page said there continues to be a need for a higher-end men’s apparel site, as they originally thought, but Gilt customers arrive expecting discounts. “Customers felt that by having two separate sites to purchase from, it was confusing,” he said. “We are trying to streamline our offerings overall.”

That was quick...

It was confused and unattractive, especially when put head to head with the competition - Mr.Porter. Hopefully, they will blow out their inventory.

Never really liked Park & Bond. They didn't have anything special to offer to online consumers. Mr. Porter was much better with providing size guidance and garment specifications.

No where near as quick as the one Esquire did. I can barely remember the name - Cladmen?

Yeah, the CLAD going out of business sale was pretty great. I grabbed 2 Caruso suits for a fraction of retail. Let's hope P&B decides to dump some of their Isaia stuff at 80% off too!

Agreed! I got some STEALS from the Clad going out of business sale. This is great news for my closet. Terrible for my wallet.

No final fire sale

Just like that... it's gone.

I'm kind of man that its gone...I hate shopping on Guilt. None of the items you want are ever available. Somehow magically they alway sell out as soon as they open up at 12. Plus all the brands that they did sell are gone. I just know that Mr. Porter, and Ikkon will be getting my money. I'm sorry that I missed the Cladmen going out of business sale, I heard Incotex chinos were going for dirt cheap
