If you haven’t heard of Gilt, here’s a quick rundown of the company.

Gilt is an e-commerce site that was founded in 2007. The idea behind the company is to offer members merchandise from a single brand or small groups of brands at prices 50%-70% off of manufacturers’ suggested retail prices. The online luxury boutique has become so successful that not even the recent recessions could dwindle sales.

While the company serves customers of all genders and ages, they’ve taken a considerable amount of time focusing on men. On October 14, 2009, for example, they launched a men’s-only sale site called Gilt Man. On August 8, 2011, Gilt Groupe announced the launch of standalone website Park and Bond, which is also for men.

Since Gilt has been dubbed the “darling of luxury-obsessed bargain hunters,” it’s probably time for you to jump on board along with the other 3.5 million members. And to assist you with your shopping experience, here’s a guide to buying men’s fashion on Gilt.
