We're hearing highly positive things about the Gant sale, which kicked off today with an apparently-not-very-private VIP preview before tomorrow's official opening. The Shophound reports that he bought $886 worth of merchandise for $136, and Guerilla Shopper writes, "Men seemed to be walking out with whole wardrobes for themselves and their families—immediate and extended." As in past seasons, most of the items are samples, which means they're a better fit for bigger guys than slender hipster types. But with shirts for $29, it's probably worth a trip even if you're more Spiderman than Thor.
