Few things in this world (as they relate to clothes shopping) make me as happy as the announcement of the GANT seasonal sample sale.  The sale starts this Wednesday, which you can read more about at The Choosy Beggar.  This year, I anticipate the crowd to be as large as ever, so I will stick to my usual plan of being first in line on opening day…funny, I try to do the same thing on Mets opening day.  Anyway, in the past I have purchased many items from GANT that I have worn to death – my navy blazer, a brown scarf, socks, pocket squares – and count on this sale to stock up on some other essentials.

To avoid wandering the sale aimlessly, and purchasing things I don’t really want or need, I have made myself a list of things I’d buy if I see them, and they fit.  This list includes:

GANT by Michael Bastian Glenplaid Sport Jacket (above) –
or similar style.

GANT by Michael Bastian Watch

New GANT Cologne

 GANT Black Leather Dopp Kit

GANT Lightweight Wool V-Neck Sweater in Purple

GANT Casual Half-Zip in Black or Navy

GANT Chestnut Brogues
I know I just bought the Allen Edmonds Dalton boot, but these are pretty sweet too!

GANT Brown Suede Chukkas

GANT Sock Porn
