    the gant by michael bastian collection was definitely one of my favorites from fashion week.

    i wrote an article giving a bit of insight on how he designed the collection and what inspired its lacrosse theme: http://www.valetmag.com/style/fashio...style_top_lead

    there's a puffer jacket that's really amazing, some cool knits and a rad trench. plus it's all pretty affordable.

    Yes, I think that you'd find the Small pretty roomy. Our XS is a lot slimmer. And the Blue Selvedge is the only shirt where we may be limited on stock. I can pull some from the NY Gant shop, but it's unclear how many they have available. Until I have that confirmation, I'll stick to what I have physically in stock. And our only Blue Small was bought by the man below...
    Aww. That's too bad cause I was really psyched to get a nice good-priced pink shirt! Thanks for the honest reply!

    Yeah, the trench and Chesterfield coat were awesome. Great pricing for the quality. We picked up both for Fall.

    Sure thing, I always want customers to get the best fit. We'll have you covered with the new Epaulet club collar oxfords - they'll definitely be made in XS.

    Holy shit!

    Small wonder though, they did a killer job on this. That madras check is basically perfect.

    Gant Rugger Medium = Epaulet Medium = Band of Outsiders Large = J.Crew Small = Gitman Vintage Small

    Haha, I love this. For some reason it makes me laugh. (Don't get me wrong; it's also seriously useful.)

    As a rule, I won't buy anything for our store with a garish or ostentatious logo

    YOU MEAN THEN YOU WON'T BE CARRYING THIS?

    My dreams have been crushed.

    Seriously though, Gilt just had a minor Gant sale; looks like they were offloading some late winter/early spring stuff. Looked interesting; picked up a few things. Hadn't bought Gant before, your equivalency chart was useful, Mike! Thanks. We'll see how they fit.

    I was lucky enough to grab one of these before they sold out. I wont get to see it until next week but if the size (M) doesn't work then it will be on B&S fairly quickly.
    I see ACL's Gant Rugger collaboration shirt has sold out already - http://www.acontinuouslean.com/2010/...as/#more-14411 [​IMG]

    Hey folks,

    Quick question: I bought a Gant fitted poplin shirt from Gilt recently, and while it fits perfectly in the shoulders and length, it's just a tad baggy in the midsection. It's unwashed, though. Since it's poplin and as-yet-unwashed, I'm hoping that if I put it in the dryer when I first wash it it'll shrink a bit. Anyone have experience with Gant's poplin? Will it shrink or no?

    I'm so jealous of you, here in Norway most Gant retailers only carry the clothes with a "dad"-fit. No slimfit, although you might get lucky and find something with a decent fit. I have a grey cable v-neck with blue and red stripes along the neck. Love this one as well, [​IMG] What I'm really trying to say is that they do have some nice items, but mostly the fit is too loose for me.

    Anyone know another US stockist for the Rugger poplin gingham s/s shirt in a Medium? Blackbird's out. [​IMG] EDIT: Having just posted this, I realize I could probably try the store in NY. :p

    i dont think mine have shrinked very much...if at all.
    just get it tailored. its easy and cheap.
    i had the sleeves tapered on this one below because they werent as thin as i liked. now it fits me flawlessly

    Are there two lines of Gant Rugger? My girlfriend brought home a couple of Rugger polos, which have great fit and quality, but were made in China. Just curious.

    sq4you, if you don't mind me asking what season is that shirt from and where did you get it?
