We stopped by the Gant warehouse sale at 260 Fifth Avenue this morning, and while there feels to be less merchandise than previous sales, it's all fall and winter merchandise and there are plenty of deals. Prices are 70% off the ticketed price and you'll find all the brand's labels: Gant, Gant Rugger and Gant By Michael Bastian.
In the outerwear area, you'll find sizes extra small though extra extra large. We spotted faux fur trimmed bomber jackets ($105), waxed workmen jackets ($118.50), a leather lettermen's jacket ($285) and beautiful suede bombers ($375). If you're looking for sport coats and blazers, those are available in sizes 45 to 56. We saw combed cotton single buttons ($148.50), seersucker styles in dark colors ($165), and patterned wool options ($195).
Button ups also range from extra small through extra extra large, and come in a range of solids and prints, with most prices between $40.50 and $55.50. Knits are broken down by size on different tables. Here, we found graphic sweatshirts ($42), crew neck sweaters ($54), chunky zip-ups ($97.50), and soft cashmere shirts ($115.50).
Pants are available in sizes 28 to 38, with slim fit cords ($51), colored denim ($54) and dress slacks ($112.50).
Shoes sizes start at 39 and cap off at 46, and run in price from a $58 suede chukka boot to a $96 leather Chelsea boot. Accessories include heavy wool socks ($9.60), pockets squares ($19.50), ties ($34.50), bow ties ($40.50), and leather belts ($26.40 to $40.50). Cold weather gear includes knit hats ($13.50), knit gloves ($17.40), leather gloves ($37.50), and scarves ($37.50). However, there are no bags.
There's a small women's section toward the back that has button ups, dresses, and outerwear, plus a rack of leathers and furs in a range of sizes (extra small to extra large). We spotted leather biker jackets ($405), shearlings ($750), and leather trenches with detachable fur collars ($645).
There's a large fitting area in the back, and even though there's more stock in the back, all styles are out. The sale runs from 9am to 7pm through Wednesday, from 10am to 8pm on Thursday, from 9am to 7pm on Friday, from 10am to 7pm on Saturday, and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
