Street Etiquette x Gilt MAN Finds General Style 33 Comments

Joshua Kissi : There is no denying Gilt Groupe has infiltrated the sales market and amended the manner online business is conducted. The company, which uses an invitation-only model,  relied on the whispers of consumers with its to build its reputation as a provider of luxury goods at discount prices during its formative years. But with growing press from media outlets during the last several years, Gilt has helped reshaped the online commerce market, especially in the area of menswear.

We all participate in some sort of bargain hunting when it comes to the clothing we buy. That became increasingly true for me and Trav as our desire to dress better intensified.

The way we intertwine a vintage element and the historical context of each post commemorating the past is one of the most crucial characteristics of Street Etiquette. Despite what some people may think, New York City is no oasis when it comes to digging up great finds through thrifting. With that in mind, it becomes necessary to explore other options when it comes to time to add to our wardrobes.


We embarked on a special collaboration with Gilt where we were given the opportunity to run through our usual thrift stores (including eBay)  in NYC to come out with our favorite pieces. Based on what we obtained it was a very fun experience displaying our liking for various styles.

    Long-time reader, first-time poster. Congrats on the feature on Gilt, got their daily email and my jaw dropped when I saw your sale. Didn’t manage to get anything before they sold out, I imagine everything must be in incredibly limited quantity.

    Wonderful what you’re doing. Keep it up.

    It’s awesome that’s you guys are garnering so much recognition. I love the pieces you curated, though its interesting how Gilt sold them for like 10-100 times the price they were bought for haha.

    Heard about them through the grapevine, a little pricey at times, but I think their word of mouth model is great!

    Only recently discovered this blog, it is incredibly innovative and inspiring. Gilt is great too, better yet there’s nothing better than finding a Vintage gem when trawling through the a pile of clothe (think you guys call it ‘thrifting’)

    Much love from the UK

    Hi, I’ve been searching everywhere for the pair of black boots you had (model where them with the red denim jacket. They were black with leather and cloth). I called Gilt to find them. Please, Please PLEASE, can you tell me where you found those military boots???
